Sixth Annual Debian Developers Conference

The 6th annual Debian Developers Conference (DebConf) will be held in
Helsinki, Finland from July 9th to July 17th 2005. Its target
audience is Debian developers, though Debian users are welcome to
attend as well. The event is based around talks, workshops, demos,
coding parties and discussions. It is highly technical in nature.

The conference will be kicked off on July 9th with Debian Day, which
is aimed at the general public and the press. This is an excellent
opportunity for corporations and governments to discover the benefits
of the world's most mature GNU/Linux distribution. Computer users can
experience the Debian community and learn from the software designers

DebConf gathers Free Software developers from countries around the
world for a week-long series of intensive development, seminars and
workshops. DebConf is organized in collaboration with one of Finland's
leading Free Software think tanks, Linux-Aktivaattori, along with
financial support from Credativ, Damicon, Hostway, HP, IBM, Intel,
Linspire, Linux Information Systems AG, Linux Magazine, Movial, MySQL,
NetApp, Nokia, O'Reilly, Progeny, SLX-Debian-Labs, Ubuntu, Univention,
VA Linux Systems Japan and Xandros.
