Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Diary Linus fans, get your diaries ready. The annual developers' conference of the Debian Project is to be held on 17-23 June in Edinburgh.

Debian is one of the largest volunteer-supported Linux distributions, with over 15,000 software packages available for it, which can be used on a total of 14 different computer architectures, ranging from IBM's s390 mainframe and PowerPC through to the ARM processor at the other end. In the middle, of course, is the x86 architecture.

The organisers of the conference have recently issued a call for papers, so any developers with hot Debian topics should look here.

If you just want to go and hear what is said and network with others with similar interests, registration details and more information can be found here. Or, if a week in Edinburgh ends up being economically indefensible, there is always the one day pre-cursor event, DebianDay on 16 June.

Developers looking to get up to speed on Debian can start here. ®
