  • The Conference gathers each year academics, users, developers and people who share the idea that software should be free and open for the community to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone. Each year SFK succeeded in its mission; educating Kosovo youth on Free and Open Source Software, its ideology and the great community behind it. SFK conferences had great impact on creating strong bonds of friendship between the local community and foreign one.

  • SFK provides a fertile ground to build and enhance networking within the tech community, both in the local region and worldwide by being used as a meeting point for a network of individuals and companies with the aim of sponsoring and initiating projects which benefit the people in Kosovo and which should also result in commercial benefits for the surrounding region.

  • SFK13 will be celebrating the 5th anniversary!

  • SFK is organized by FLOSSK (Free Libre Open Source Software Kosova) - Members of which are also Mozilla Representatives.

  • We are planning on having few activities in SFK regarding Mozilla. We are planning on bringing speakers from Mozilla who will be probably doing a keynote speech, we are having a booth table, and maybe even demoing FirefoxOS and Mozilla latest updates in general.
