As announced on http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/08/msg00002.html, we had the first Colombian Mini-DebConf on August 19th and 20th 2006, http://wiki.debian.org/DebianColombia/MiniDebconf2006.
14 Debian enthusiasts from all over the country joined the event, and we even got the help from Luciano Bello from Argentina, who was invited to the related event "Jornadas de Software Libre", http://jsl.unicauca.edu.co that was held in parallel.
Colombian Debian community is just starting to get into the work and we couldn't manage to do any BSP, but we did an on-hands workshop on general Debian tasks and package maintainance. At the end, we also had a KSP, organized by Santiago Ruano Rincon, http://afrodita.unicauca.edu.co/~santiago/ksp-jsl2006/. At least 4 of the 14 assistants have continued the work that was started that day.
Santiago was the only DD present, and only Luciano and Alejandro Rios have had any previous and continued experience at the NMP, so the three made the talking and helped the assistants on their work.
