Italian Debian Community Conference 2010 - 17th-19th September, Perugia (PG - Italy)

September 3rd, 2010

The Debian Project and the Debian Italian community are pleased to announce that the 5th edition of the Debian Italian community conference will take place from the 17th to the 19th of September in Perugia, Italy. For the first time, the conference has been organized in association with the Italian Ubuntu community, joining efforts with the traditional Italian Ubuntu Meeting. For the occasion the conference has been renamed to Italian Debian/Ubuntu Community Conference (DUCC-IT '10 for short) and will focus on bringing together both communities and improving cross-distribution collaboration. Users, contributors, and enthusiasts of Debian, Ubuntu, and any other Debian-based distribution are invited to attend. The event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the annual Software Freedom Day in Italy, which will be co-located in the city of Perugia.

The conference will see the prominent participation of the current Debian Project Leader, Stefano Zacchiroli, and some members of both Debian-women and Ubuntu-women teams, explaining the benefits of a wider collaboration scheme, and how we encourage a more heterogeneous and balanced environment.

Scheduled events currently include some major technical tracks, aimed toward new contributors, and practical sessions on Saturday, as well as social launches, a key-signing party and a round table discussion about female participation in the Italian free software world on the other days. More information and logistical details are available on the Debian wiki, or directly on the conference website (in Italian).
