Happy birthday Debian!

19 years of freedom… and counting!

DebCamp -1

DebCamp starts tomorrow and the local team is relaxing and enjoying some free time with a cup of Debian Coffee. See you soon in Managua! (In case you wonder… yes!!! both the Debian Coffee and the DebConf coffee mug will be for sale during DebConf12 in Managua)

Are you going to DebConf12?

There’s only a few days left before the sponsored registration for DebConf12 closes.

If you haven’t registered yet, please do it before May 15th and consider submitting a talk. We’re looking forward to see you in Managua in July!

DebConf needs you!

The 13th Debian Conference is just around the corner. DebConf12 will be held in Managua, Nicaragua, July 8-14, 2012, and we need your help!

Why should I care?

DebConf is the annual conference for Debian contributors and interested users. Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers and attendees from around the world (DebConf11 had attendees from 46 different countries).

DebConf helps share the knowledge and experiences of individual developers with the entire community. It also helps promote enthusiasm for specialized areas of development and encourages discussions about Debian’s future.

The benefits that DebConf brings to the Debian project as a whole, and the larger Free Software community, will improve Debian —and by extension will help improve GNU/Linux for everyone, whether they use Debian (or a Debian derivative), or any other distribution.

How can I help?

DebConf is a lot to organize and pay for. We invite you to help that this is going to be a successfull event.

  • Since DebConf is an event organised by volunteers, its quality strongly depends on effort from these volunteers and as such every help is appreciated. Please check the Volunteering section to obtain more information
  • Without money we can not organize a Debconf. Donating is a great way to help us.
  • Do you want to be one of our generous sponsors? You can get nice publicity and contribute valuably to this DebConf.

Hello Planet Debian

I guess I have to do the customary Hello Planet post.

I’m the team leader of the local DebConf12 team and I’ll try to keep you updated on all the cool things that are going on right now with the organization of the thirteenth Debian developer conference that will take place in Managua, Nicaragua, from 1st to 14th of July 2012.

We need a lot of help, so if you want to contribute please check out the Jobs and Teams pages on the DebConf wiki.

Our next DebConf meeting is TBD on doodle, if you’re interested in attending, please go to the doodle poll and select the dates you are available so we can decide a date for the meeting.

Hope to see you guys around!
