About DebConf18 in Taiwan
This years DebConf will take place in Taiwan from July 29th to August 05th.
Even if the flights last 16 hours on average, the anticipation of the colleagues is already great and we are very curious what the event has in store for its visitors.
Lectures, Talks and BoFs
Meanwhile the packed lecture program has been published. There will be around 90 presentations in 3 tracks on the following 8 topics:
- Debian blends
- Cloud and containers
- Debian in science
- Packaging, policy, and Debian infrastructure
- Social context
- Systems administration, automation and orchestration
Many of the presentations can even be streamed. The links are as follows:
We are especially looking forward to the SPI BoF (Software in the Public Interest - Birds of a Feather) and the DSA BoF (Debian System Administrators - Birds of a Feather), in which our colleague and Debian sysadmin Martin Zobel-Helas participates.
For us at credativ, the Job Fair is of particular importance. Here we meet potential new colleagues and hopefully many visitors interested in our company. If you want to have a chat with our colleagues: Noël, Sven and Martin will be available for you at the Job Fair and on all other days of the event.
In addition to exciting discussions, we of course hope for one or two interesting applications that we will receive afterwards. More information about our vacancies can be found here.
The Job Fair takes place one day before DebConf18, on 28 July.
Daytrip and other events
Of course there will also be the "Daytrip" this year, which will show the conference visitors the surroundings and the country. Participants have a whole range of options to choose from. Whether you want to explore the city, go hiking, or hold a Taiwanese tea ceremony, there should be something for everyone.
In addition to the daily breakfast, lunch, coffee break and dinner, there will be a cheese-and-wine party on Monday 30 August and a conference dinner on Thursday 2 August. Our colleagues will attend both events and hopefully have some interesting conversations.
Debian and credativ
The free operating system Debian is one of the most popular Linux distributions and has thousands of users worldwide.
Besides Martin Zobel-Helas, the credativ employs many members of the Debian project. Also our managing director, Dr. Michael Meskes, was actively involved in Debian even before credativ GmbH (1999) was founded. This also resulted in a close and long-standing bond with the Debian project and the community for credativ.
