GUADEC is the GNOME community’s largest conference, bringing together hundreds of users, contributors, community members, and enthusiastic supporters together for a week of talks and workshops.
GNOME is a free and open-source software environment project supported by a non-profit foundation. Together, the community of contributors and the Foundation create a computing platform and software ecosystem, composed entirely of free software, that is designed to be elegant, efficient, and easy to use.
Please note: due to COVID-19, GUADEC 2021 will be held online.
We are continuing to monitor the global situation and will consider hosting a hybrid conference in Mexico as well if travel becomes possible.
