The Debian Developer Conference 2007


Article from Issue 82/2007

From the 17th to 23rd of June, about 400 Debian developers from all over the world met in Edinburgh, Scotland, to listen to talks, attend workshops, hack some free software, and have a good time.

Debian conferences are like a family gathering. About 1000 developers work on the distribution in their spare time. These enthusiasts are spread around the world and talk online for days, sometimes weeks, before important decisions are made. As in every family, different personalities and opinions are involved, so it’s important to meet regularly to talk things through over tea, coffee, or a nice pint of beer. The yearly developer meetings, called DebConf [1], are the perfect opportunity to spend some time together, put names and faces to nicknames, and discuss the future of the community distribution.
