Videos from DebConf08

August 28, 2008

Debian Conference is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops – all of them highly technical in nature. It will be held in Mar del Plata, Argentina, from August 10th to August 16th, 2008.

Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian’s internationalization.

Videos about this event can be found through an RSS feed providing you with ogg video files.
