Penguicon is an Open Source - Science Fiction convention that is community run, and non-profit. Once upon a time, a group of Open Source enthusiasts realized they shared a love for Science Fiction, too! 15 years ago they set out to combine both..... and Penguicon was born. Join us and let your geek flag fly! Penguicon, 15 years strong!
