World’s Largest GNU/Linux Distribution Developers’ Conference about to start

“The Debian Project, the team behind the free Debian GNU/Linux
operating system, would like to invite you to participate in the
upcoming Debian Conference which will take place from August 1 to
7, 2010, at New York City’s Columbia University in cooperation with
the Columbia Computer Science department. This year’s conference is
the first DebConf to be held in the United States in the 11-year
history of the event. This year, more than 300 developers from all
over the world, including Brazil, Argentina, Bosnia, Mexico,
Canada, Western Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Venezuela,
and Latvia, will participate.

“More information is available at

“Every year, DebConf allows new and existing Debian project
participants from around the world to assemble, share knowledge and
ideas, make collaborative contributions to Debian, and build
tighter community bonds. Conference costs are largely supported by
corporate sponsors who find significant interest in supporting
Debian and DebConfs.

“For the first time, Debconf will host “tracks”, featuring a
cluster of talks linked by a common theme. These include tracks on
Science/Math, Java, Enterprise Systems, Debian Community Outreach,
and Media and Art in Debian. Other talks will cover technical,
licensing, and community issues by a host of Debian developers and
other leaders in the Free Software community. Eben Moglen, Chairman
of the Software Freedom Law Center and Professor of Law at Columbia
University will be our plenary speaker on August 3, at 10:00
