We discuss the deformation theory of special Lagrangian (SL) conifolds in C^m. Conifolds are a key ingredient in the compactification problem for moduli spaces of compact SLs in Calabi-Yau manifolds. This category allows for the simultaneous presence of conical singularities and of non-compact, asymptotically conical, ends. Our main theorem is the natural next step in the chain of results initiated by McLean and continued by the author and Joyce. We emphasize a unifying framework for studying the various cases and discuss analogies and differences between them. This paper also lays down the geometric foundations for our paper "Special Lagrangian conifolds, II" concerning gluing constructions for SL conifolds in C^m.
