Previous Years

The first InstallFest was organized in 1999 by students from the Silicon Hill Club of the CTU Student Union. The first events used to be the installation festivals, where the participants installed the Linux operating system under the supervision of experts. With growing popularity of the event, lectures and topics were extended. Since 2009, the event is a classical conference.

Our faculty has been involved in organizing the festival since 2011. Since then, the festival has been held annually and its program is expanding every year. You can find videos, presentations, and programs on the pages from previous years.
