Penguicon 2015

Penguicon 2015
April 24th-26th

This excerpt is directly from the website:

Penguicon is a three-day event where we all learn from each other (as well as from our Guests of Honor) about hacking, building sci-fi universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music, incredible costumes, and more.

It is an event for mainly sci-fi and OpenSource. However, this is a big hang out for ALL areas of the geek/nerd community. What better way to meet people who wave the geek/nerd flag? It is a convention tailored mainly for adults even though kids are welcome. Please keep that in mind. Mark it on your calendar.
