Epic! I've been meaning to get round to this for ye-e-a-a-ars.

Being easily intimidated, I would like to prepare beforehand, and
someone mentioned there was a online pdf tutorial or something. Turns
out, there's loads. (see below). Any suggestions on what's a good one
to start?

https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/packaging-tutorial/packaging-tutorial.en.pdf is the same material as we'll be going over during the tutorial, so it's a great start in my opinion. If you work through as much of it as you have time for, and ask questions about it at the event, I am sure that would work well.

Cheerio! See you on the Internet soon, and hopefully in-real-life next year!
