    Italian Debian Community Conference 2007, 15th 16th September, San Dona di Piave (VE, Italy)

    contributed by andremachado, published on Fri Sep 14 13:18:51 2007 in event-announce

    We are glad to announce the 3rd edition of the Italian Debian Community Conference (DCC-IT 2007).

    This year the event is going to take place on 15th and 16th September in San Donà di Piave (Venice - Italy), once again as part of the End Summer Camp.

    The conference is meant to give a common place for the Italian community to discuss ideas and share knowledge, where users, translators and developers can meet and directly interact. This is also going to be a good occasion for a GPG keysigning party.

    There are already some talks (in Italian, of course) planned, but new speakers are always welcome.

    Although this is mainly a nation-wide event, the italian Debian crowd would be happy to meet Debian people from abroad.

    More information is available in English in a wiki. For any kind of questions, feel free to mail the italiandebconf mailing list

    contributed by Joerg Jaspert, published on Fri Apr 20 23:45:00 2007 in event-announce, news

    The DebConf team has released the final report for the seventh annual Debian Conference, which took place in Oaxtepec, Mexico in May, 2006. The report is intended for a large audience, and includes impressions and facts from the conference.

    Meanwhile, preparations for DebConf7, to be held in Edinburgh from Sunday 17 June until Saturday 23 June, continue. Recently the team has released a list of events that have been planned to occur during the conference. Whilst the actual scheduling has not yet occured, the draft schedule gives a good impression that the upcoming conference will again cover a wide set of topics, providing a good forum for not only developers, but interested users and wannabe maintainers.

    If you are interested to meet the people that produce your favorite Linux Distribution you are encouraged to register in the conference management system, to let the organisers know you want to attend. If you have already registered for an account, make sure you reconfirm your attendance before May 3rd.
