Heads up → Online MiniDebConf is Online
I know most Debian people know about this already – But in case you don’t follow the usual Debian communications channels, this might interest you!
Given most of the world is still under COVID-19 restrictions, and that we want to work on Debian, given there is no certainty as to what the future holds in store for us… Our DPL –fearless as they always are– had the bold initiative to make this weekend into the first-ever miniDebConf Online (MDCO)!
So, we are already halfway through DebCamp (which means, you can come and hang out with us in the debian.social DebCamp Jitsi lounge, where some impromptu presentations might happen (or not).
Starting tomorrow morning (11AM UTC), we will have a quite interesting set of talks. I am reproducing the schedule here:
|11:00 - 11:10||MDCO team members||Hello + Welcome|
|11:30 - 11:50||Wouter Verhelst||Extrepo|

- subject to confirmation
Remember this is an online event, meant for all of the world! Yes, the chosen times seem quite Europe-centric (but they are mostly a function of the times the talk submitters requested).
Talks are 11:00–18:00UTC, which means, 06:00–13:00 Mexico (GMT-5), 20:00–03:00 Japan (GMT+9), 04:00–11:00 Western Canada/USA/Mexico (GMT-7)… and the rest of the world, somewhere in between.
(No, this was clearly not optimized for our dear usual beer team. Sorry! I guess we need you to be fully awake at beertime!)
Of course, I didn’t make it clear at first how to connect to the Online miniDebConf, silly me!

That should be it. Hope to see you there!
