Debian invites you to Debian Day
July 12th, 2011
The Debian Project, the team behind the free Debian operating system, would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming Debian Day which will take place on July 24 2011 at Banski Dvor, Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina as the first day of the annual Debian Conference.
During Debian Day, the conference opens its doors to anyone interested in finding out more about Debian and Free Software, inviting enthusiasts, users, and developers to a full day of talks on several subjects — such as Free Software in government and enterprise, and involvement — as well as a string of talks about the Debian Project and operating system.
Debian Day opening plenary session, during which
will welcome attendees, the talks that follow will include:
Understanding Debian, by Bdale Garbee
My life with Free Software, by Enrico Zini
How to contribute and get involved, by Alexander Reichle-Schmehl and Meike Reichle
Debian in enterprise: a Google case study, by Guido Trotter and Jesus Climent

Debian Day is free of charge and open for everybody interested in Free Software. More information about it, and a complete schedule, can be found at the Debian Day page.
The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly
free community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of
the largest and most influential open source projects. Thousands of
volunteers from all over the world work together to create and
maintain Debian software. Available in 70 languages, and
supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
universal operating system.
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. More information is available from the DebConf website.
