The DebConf content team is pleased to announce the schedule of DebConf15, the forthcoming Debian Developers Conference. From a total of nearly 100 talk submissions, the team selected 75 talks. Due to the high number of submissions, several talks had to be shortened to 20 minute slots, of which a total of 30 talks have made it to the schedule.
In addition, around 50 meetings and discussions (BoFs) have been submitted so far, as well as several other events like lightning talk sessions, live demos, a movie screening, a poetry night or stand-up comedy.
The Schedule is available online at the DebConf15 conference site.
Further changes to the schedule can and will be made, but today’s announcement represents the first stable version.
In addition to the previously announced invited speakers, the content team also announces the following list of additional featured speakers:
- Allison Randal, President, Open Source Initiative and Distinguished Technologist, HP: “Philosophy of Free Software”
- Peter Eckersley, Chief Computer Scientist, Electronic Frontier Foundation: “Let’s Encrypt”
- John Sullivan, Executive Director, Free Software Foundation: “Debian and the FSF: Ending disagreements by solving problems at the source”
- Jon ‘maddog’ Hall, Executive Director, Linux International: “Two contests, no waiting!”
The full list of invited and featured speakers, including the invited speakers profiles and the titles of their talks is available here.
