Collabora is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of this year's DebConf, the annual Debian conference for developers. The week-long conference will be taking at the University of Cape Town, in Cape Town, South Africa from 2 July to 9 July 2016.
Come say hello at our booth during the job fair, or catch one of the three presentations given by Collaborans during the week:
Do you want to learn how you can help make Stretch a success? How the next Debian releases will be named? What changes to the release processes we have implemented and what we are considering? Why your packages are being auto-removed from testing? Join us to learn about all that and more!
There is a big community developing Debian derivative distributions. This talk aims to discuss about what derivative distributions use for their day to day operation, such building packages, images, live media, managing distribution repositories, trying to seek better unification and standardisation of such tools and processes. In the same way, we shall explore and discuss the return path to the upstream distribution.
The role of the DPL is one which isn't understood fully by anyone who hasn't done the job. There's generally accepted knowledge that it a) takes a lot of time and b) you need to talk to people, but the extent of this is very variable. In this talk, I'll go through my year as the DPL, looking at which issues were dealt with and what was actually involved. It'll call in to question what role is expected of the DPL, and if one person can actually perform this task.
Check out the full DebConf16 schedule here. We look forward to seeing you there!
In Cape Town, South Africa from 02/07/2016 to 09/07/2016
