Penguicon 2020 - CANCELLED

April 24 - 26, 2020

Linux Professional Institute (LPI) is excited to be participating and supporting Penguicon 2020 taking place from April 24 - 26, 2020 Southfield, Michigan. 

Over 1,600 nerds, geeks, and fans attend Penguicon every year to celebrate and share in what we all love. This all-volunteer, not-for-profit convention brings together every kind of geek – software developers, moviemakers, authors and their fans, hackers, foodies – for a weekend of sharing in panels, workshops, and parties. Dozens of people work on the convention throughout the year, for no more than a pat on the back as people come ‘home’ to Penguicon each year. Penguicon has helped people collaborate on new art projects, meet life-long friends and change careers.
