the DebConf team
DebConf is the Debian Project's developer conference. In addition
to a full schedule of technical, social and policy talks, DebConf
provides an opportunity for developers, contributors and other
interested people to meet in person and work together more closely.
It has taken place annually since 2000 in locations as varied as
Canada, Finland and Mexico.
DebConf will be preceded by DebCamp, from Sunday 10 to Friday 15 June.
DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event giving an opportunity for
group work on Debian projects.
On Saturday 16 June DebianDay will take place. DebianDay is a short
conference aimed at Debian users, and others interested in learning
more about free software.
If you are interested in helping by working as a volunteer during
DebConf, please contact email@example.com
If you or your company are interested in sponsoring DebConf by
donating money or lending equipment, please contact the sponsorship
team at firstname.lastname@example.org
