This year's DebConf was held from 6th to 12th August at the Collège de Maisonneuve in Montréal. We supported the event by sending 5 colleagues of ours and providing silver sponsoring . As in last years DebConf17 provided an incredibly productive environment as well as many interesting and thoughtful talks. Among the highlights are the Lightning Talks which featured a talk about how Google will rename their internal Distribution "goobuntu" to "gLinux" and switch from Ubuntu to Debian as their upstream. In Will there be Debian in your next BMW car? we were presented BMW's workflows regarding the usage of free and open source software on their cars and what role Debian might play for them.
