Talks wanted (CfP)

The main goal of a MiniDebConf, besides the social «get together», is to exchange knowledge, experience, best practices, etc.

So please contribute to the MiniDebConf by proposing a talk, workshop, birds of feather (BoF) session, etc. To submit your proposition, add it into the table below.

Talk submission is closed now, see the Schedule. Last minute lightning talk submissions are still accepted, please add yourself to the Schedule on Friday evening behind the other lightning talks.

In case you have hassles to register your talk due to not having a wiki account or getting one in time, please feel free to send an e-mail to minidebconf19@debian.ch instead. We'll add your talk then.

Topic Suggestions

This list is not exhaustive, and anything not listed here is welcome, as long as it's somehow related to Debian or Free Software in general. If in doubt, propose a talk and we'll give feedback.

We will have talks on Friday late afternoon, Saturday and Sunday morning, the exact slots are yet to be determined. There also will be a slot for lightning (🗲) talks or demos of either 5min or 10min.

We expect submissions and talks to be held in English, as this is the working language in Debian and at this event. Normal talks are either 25 or 45 minutes (plus questions), birds of feather sessions and workshops may also take longer.

olasd@d.o

I've been using Debian in production for more than 10 years, and this is a very strong love/hate relationship; what better than a MiniDebConf to vent, rant and hopefully share some good and less good practices amongst friends? Some keywords I'd like to touch on: staging, deployment, preseeding, terraform, puppet, unattended-upgrades, policy-rc.d, ...

peb@d.o

I started to contribute to the project with the desire to get mailman3 in the archive. Then, I became hooked to Quality Assurance and Team Packaging (to me it's part of a QA effort to do Team Packaging). I'll try to show why but mostly I'll try to emphasize why we should all care about it.

Three months before the buster soft freeze I got the weird idea of providing LXC 3 in the archive. Let's talk about what it brings, and what's left to do!
