“Debian is the Universal Operating System of the users, by the users, for the users.” — Anonymous
DebConf is the annual Debian conference which is held in a different country every year. DebConf19, the 20th annual Debian conference was held in Curitiba, Brazil, from July 21 to July 28, 2019. MiniDebConfs are local meetings organized by Debian project members to achieve similar objectives to those of the DebConf, but on a regional context. When majority of talks are not Debian specific, it is called DebUtsav - a celebration of Free Software by Debian community.
DebUtsav Goa 2019 is an awesome opportunity for any user who wants to experience the magic of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Here you can meet the veterans in FOSS development, develop professional connections which will help you in future, chat with contributors who can guide you, advance the cause of Debian and most importantly, grasp the essence of FOSS development. It is indeed a ‘never miss’ opportunity that will give you a strong foundation to build on!
