What is DebConf?

Debian Conference

Debian Conference is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops - all of them highly technical in nature. DebConf 11 will be held in Banja Luka, in Republic of Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from 24th to 30th July 2011. Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian's internationalization.

It is highly recommended to check out Welcome to DebConf11 page for detailed logistical information about attending the Conference, including directions, what to bring, etc.

Debian Camp

Development teams like debian-installer and debian-edu also have the possibility of meeting beforehand for undisturbed collaborative work. However, note that only the basic necessities like bed and network connection will be provided at that time. Interested teams should contact the organizers upfront to make special arrangements. DebCamp will take place from 17th to 23rd July 2011.

Debian Day

Meanwhile, decision-makers interested in discovering the benefits of Free Software and Debian users are invited to attend Debian Day on the 24th July. This day will be open for broader public and the schedule includes presentations of more general interest.
