DebConf18 starts today in Hsinchu
DebConf18, the 19th annual Debian Conference, is taking place in Hsinchu, Taiwan from July 29th to August 5th, 2018.
Debian contributors from all over the world have come together at National Chiao Tung University, Microelectronics and Information Research Center (NCTU MIRC) during the preceding week for DebCamp (focused on individual work and team sprints for in-person collaboration developing Debian), and the Open Day on July 28th (with presentations and workshops of interest to a wide audience).
Today the main conference starts with over 300 attendants and 118 activities scheduled, including 45- and 20-minute talks and team meetings, workshops, a job fair, talks from invited speakers, as well as a variety of other events.
The full schedule at https://debconf18.debconf.org/schedule/ is updated every day, including activities planned ad-hoc by attendees during the whole conference.
If you want to engage remotely, you can follow the video streaming available from the DebConf18 website of the events happening in the three talk rooms: Yushan (玉山) (the main auditorium), Xueshan (雪山), and Zhongyangjianshan (中央尖山), or join the conversation about what is happening in the talk rooms: #debconf18-y, #debconf18-x and #debconf18-z (all those channels in the OFTC IRC network).
