Software Freedom Kosova Conference (SFK) is one of the biggest and oldest annual non-profit conferences in the region established to promote software freedom, free culture and open knowledge, a global movement that originally started more than 25 years ago.

The Conference gathers each year developers, academics and users 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 principles and the great community behind it. SFK conferences have had great impact on creating strong bonds of friendship between the local and communities.

SFK provides a fertile ground to build and enhance networking within the tech community, both in the country, in the 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 of Kosovo and which should also result in benefits for the surrounding region.
