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.
