The Debian Project’s annual conference is slowly coming closer. Visiting places around the world since 2000, DebConf will take place this year in Managua, Nicaragua, in July and will again provide an opportunity for people who contribute to Debian to meet in person for face-to-face collaboration and discussions.
At DebConf we try to bring together as many Debian contributors as
possible, including those who could not afford to attend from their own
resources. You can help make DebConf12 a success by your organisation
becoming a sponsor, or by donating money as an individual.
 Individual donations can be made online in either US dollars or euros.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, you can find more
information about  DebConf12 sponsor page or directly contact
In addition to monetary donations, sponsorship can be provided in the
form of in-kind donations, or by lending equipment for the conference
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. Thousands of
volunteers from all over the world work together to create and maintain
Debian software. Available in 70 languages, and supporting a huge range
of computer types, Debian calls itself the
“universal operating system” .
DebConf is the Debian Project’s developer conference. In addition to a
full schedule of technical, social and policy talks, DebConf provides
an opportunity for developers, contributors and other interested people
to meet in person and work together more closely. It has taken place
annually since 2000 in locations as varied as Scotland, Argentina, and
Bosnia and Herzegovina. More information about DebConf is available
