thousand volunteers from all over the world work together to create
and maintain Debian software. Translated into 27 languages, and
supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
“universal operating system”.

DebConf is the annual Debian conference, which has taken place since
2000 in places as varied as Canada, Finland, and Mexico. Several
hundred developers, contributors, and users gather each year at
a new location to further ideas, cooperate, and socialise. More
