DebConf has become one of the most important conferences on my annual calendar, and has inspired me over the last two years to become more involved with Debian. Debian is one of the most democratic and egalitarian software freedom communities in existence today. DebConf, as an annual event, showcases that community and enables it to flourish. DebConf16 was no exception. I encourage anyone who wants to examine first-hand a good model of a functioning Free Software community attend DebConf.
