What is DebConf?
DebConf (Debian Conference) is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops - all of them highly technical in nature.
Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian's internationalization.
Development teams like debian-installer and debian-edu also have the possibility of meeting beforehand for undisturbed collaborative work. However, note that only the basic necessities like bed and network connection will be provided at that time. Interested teams should contact the organizers upfront to make special arrangements.
Meanwhile, decision-makers interested in discovering the benefits of Free Software and Debian users are invited to attend Debian Day, an open house event that will kick-off Debconf with presentations of general interest.
