What is 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. It will be held in Espoo, Finland, from July 10th to July 17th 2005.
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 Debconf5 with presentations of general interest, on Saturday, July 9th.
Participation to this event is free of charge.
