KiCad Conference 2023 (KiCon) to be held in A Coruña, Spain
The KiCad Conference will be held in person on September 9-10, 2023 at Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de A Coruña (Palexco).
KiCad is a free and open-source software suite for the design, simulation, and fabrication of electronic circuits. It is available worldwide for use on Windows, MacOS, and Linux platforms.
Professionals from all over the world collaborate in the development of this landmark open-source program. Its feature set compares favorably with solutions costing thousands of euros.
The Kicad Conference is the largest gathering of professional engineers, designers, and makers using KiCad worldwide.
The last face-to-face KiCon took place in Chicago in 2019. From 2020 to 2022 the conference was held online only, in deference to COVID safety measures. 2023, is the year to hold the conference in person again, and Europe was chosen to provide a convenient location for the 100.000+ European KiCad users. A Coruña was selected as the host city from among other European cities.
The core KiCad developers will be present at KiCon to meet with KiCad users and discuss the future of KiCad. Wayne Stambaugh, the KiCad project leader will give the keynote address.
Throughout these two days, many talks and training sessions will take place at all levels. These are targeted at anyone interested in electronics, from the hobbyist to the advanced professional. Examples of these talks are how to automate tasks, PCB design tricks, how to combine KiCad workflows with other technologies, and more…
For professionals, attending KiCon is a unique opportunity. Here, you will be able to:
- Learn from experts: improve your skills by learning from users and more advanced designers, who will talk about what we can expect in the next version of the program, and best practices in design.
- Network: Meet other professionals to share ideas, talk about challenges, and make contacts that can benefit your company.
