My DebConf19 mini-report:

There is really too much to write about that happened at DebConf, I hope to get some time and write seperate blog entries on those really soon.

  • Participated in Bursaries BoF, I was chief admin of DebConf bursaries in this cycle. Thanks to everyone who already stepped up to help with next year.
  • Gave a lightning talk titled “Can you install Debian within a lightning talk slot?” where I showed off Calamares on the latest official live media. Spoiler alert: it barely doesn’t fit in the allotted time, something to fix for bullseye!
  • Participated in a panel called “Surprise, you’re a manager!“.
  • Hosted “Debian Live BoF” – we made some improvements for the live images during the buster cycle, but there’s still a lot of work to do so we held a session to cut out our initial work for Debian 11.
  • Got the debbug and missed the day trip, I hope to return to this part of Brazil one day, so much to explore in just the surrounding cities.
  • The talk selection this year was good, there’s a lot that I learned and caught up on that I probably wouldn’t have done if it wasn’t for DebConf. Talks are recorded so (http archive, YouTube). PS: If you find something funny, please link (with time stamp) on the FunnyMoments wiki page (that page is way too bare right now).
