About Us

“Debian is the Universal Operating System of the users, by the users, for the users.”

— Anonymous

DebConf is the annual Debian conference which is held in a different country every year. DebConf16 will be held in Cape Town, South Africa in July 2016.

Mini-DebConfs are local meetings organized by Debian project members to achieve similar objectives to those of the DebConf, but on a regional context.

Why Attend ?

A mini-DebConf is an awesome opportunity for any user who wants to experience the magic of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Here you can meet the veterans in FOSS development, develop professional connections which will help you in future, chat with contributors who can guide you, advance the cause of Debian and most importantly, grasp the essence of FOSS development. It is indeed a ‘never miss’ opportunity that will give you a strong foundation to build on!
