Debian Project at Events in Australia, USA and Germany

January 19th, 2003

Several exhibitions and conferences covering Free Software and GNU/Linux will take place during the next couple of days. The Debian project has been offered to participate in two of them and the first one is a conference entirely devoted to Debian.

January 20th - 21st: Debian Mini-Conf, Perth, Australia
This conference is held prior to the Linux Conference Australia and many Debian people are going to attend the Debian mini-conference. Talks given by Debian people range from topics like maintaining several Debian machines with cfengine, using the apt-cacher, linda, and unattended installations with FAI to using IPv6 and Ham Radio with Debian.
January 22nd - 24th: Linuxworld Conference and Expo, New York, USA
The Debian project will be present at booth #17 in the .org pavilion. Even more Debian people will be at booth #18 for the Japan Linux Association. You'll find some Debian/sh machines working there, including HP690 and Dreamcast.
January 23rd - 26th: Hamburger Computer Tage, Hamburg, Germany
The Debian project will maintain a booth as part of booth 244 (NMMN) and members of the Debian project will also give a talk about the development model of Debian, demonstrate an installation and report about Free Software on mobile devices.

We invite all interested people in that area to attend one of these conferences, meet Debian developers and users, exchange GnuPG fingerprints, discuss various topics on Debian and Free Software, and otherwise participate in our vibrant community.
