First Debian Mini Conference to be held in Taiwan

The Debian Project, the team behind the free Debian Linux operating
system, proudly announces the first Debian Mini Conference in Taiwan
which takes place 26th-27th September at Technology Building, Taipei
City, Taiwan(R.O.C.) during International Conference on Open
Source(ICOS) 2009 [1]. The ICOS 2009 is organized by the Software
Liberty Association of Taiwan (SLAT) [2]. Its aim is to bring
international FLOSS projects and developers together, so that they can
share experience, introduce projects and get in touch with local
developers and users.


Participants from many Asian countries like China, Indonesia, Japan,
Taiwan, Thailand and overseas from Europe and Australia ranging from
Debian users, to contributors and official Debian Developers will gather
together to exchange knowledge and further improve Debian for their
specific needs. Topics include a “peak behind the curtain of Debian’s
archive” by Debian’s FTP Master, Jörg Jaspert; an “introduction to
embedded development using Embedded Debian [3]” by Hector Oron; as well as
“Personal experience on ‘how to help Debian'” by Andrew Lee (李健秋). A
Special topic of interest is Skolelinux / Debian Edu, a Debian pure
blend optimising Debian for the usage in schools, for which Jonas
Smedegaard presents the projects history while Holger Levsen details on
how debian-edu has been widely used over the world.

More information is available at the organisation

About Debian

The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly
free, community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of
the largest and most influential open source projects. Over three
thousand volunteers from all over the world work together to create and
maintain Debian software. Translated into over 30 languages, and
supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
“universal operating system”.

About MiniDebConf

A MiniDebConf is a Debian Project’s developer conference, which is
smaller in the number of attendees compared to a full DebConf, which is
held annually by the Debian project. It still features a full schedule
of technical, social and policy talks, and thus a Mini-DebConf provides
an opportunity for developers, contributors and other interested people
to meet in person and work together closely. Just like its bigger
counter part, the regular DebConf, Mini-DebConfs have taken place many
times since 2000 in locations from all over the world: Europe, America,
Asia and Australia continents.
