Starting October 3rd, 2020

A Virtual Conference, in two parts

After a successful first year of KiCon in 2019, we decided to change venues. We were very excited to hold the conference at CERN, a major contributor to the KiCad project. However, Coronavirus / COVID-19 changed a lot of plans, including ours. KiCon 2020 is completely remote, so that community members can still connect with the developers and each other. We will have a Developer component (coming up on Oct 3rd), and a Community component. Read on to hear more about each element, and sign up on the mailing list below so you keep up with the latest talks and speakers.

KiCon 2020 Developer Q&A

On October 3rd at 14:00 UTC, the KiCad developer will discuss the changes to the upcoming version 6 software. Community members can ask questions directly to the developers. Click below to learn more.

What about CERN?

We are tentatively planning on holding KiCon 2021 at CERN, in roughly the same timeframe (September 2021). If interested in discussing the CERN conference, please take part in the 2020 version of KiCon.
