Conference for Open Source Coders, Users & Promoters (COSCUP) is one of the largest open-source technology conferences in Taiwan, attracting thousands of participants every year and providing rich opportunities for sharing experiences and exchanging ideas.

👉 Attend as a participant

Anyone can participate in COSCUP as an attendee, and it's totally free! As a large-scale event like FOSDEM.org, no registration is required beforehand, you can just walk in and start your journey.

Participants can attend various sessions, talks, and workshops, learn about the latest open-source technology and trends, exchange experiences, and establish connections with other participants. Checkout:

For overseas participants:

  • Language: More than one hundred talks in English we have this year.
  • VISA: contact attendee@coscup.org for assistance.
