DebConf Organizers blog
While DebConf9 is over, there are still things to do, we are not done yet. There is even one thing every attendee can do: Give Feedback!
Did you attend an event during DebConf9? Did you like it? Was the speaker competent? Or could they improve something? Help them by telling it. Just go to the schedule, select the event you attended and follow the link in the “Feedback” box. You can rate the speaker in 5 different ways and even leave a text comment for them. (Please note that your name will not be shown to the speaker).
Have you been a speaker? Want to see what attendees thought about your performance? Go to the submission interface, select your event and look into the “Feedback” tab.
DebConf9 has finally begun with OpenDay today, Information about video streams is available on our wiki and now I need to stop blogging for our daily organisational meeting, which we conviniently timed at lunch time, so we have a good reason to keep it short :-)
We are still looking for volunteers for various jobs: food ticket checking, frontdesk work, videoteam work, announcing the speakers and making sure everything is fine with the talks - so if you are here and can spare a few hours once or on several days, please come to frontdesk and speak with us!
The basic infrastructure has already been set up: we have internet at the main venue \o/ via a 20mbit symetric connection. Currently cat5 cables are being placed in the venue, the work to setup the wireless APs has begun, we have a basic frontdesk and the catering is also already providing us with food. Even the temperature is still bearable - inside and outside in the shadow ;-)
What we are lacking mostly atm are attendees and volunteers - if you can dedicate some time during DebConf or Camp, please talk to the frontdesk and look at our ToDo list.
This blog post is mostly a test to see the engine is still working… :-)
But I don’t think it hurts to mention that the deadline for registration and for submitting talks and workshops is in 8 days, so hurry up, if you haven’t already! Of course you can also register later, but then you won’t get sponsored and maybe won’t get a timeslot for your proposal.
That’s all for now, stay tuned for more!
The schedule for the upcoming DebConf9 is available. Most of it should be set already, but of course there still can be small changes until the conference starts, and honestly, until it ends :-) But we will try our best to avoid changes less then 48h in advance - and we count on you all here :-)
As usual we offer various ways to access the schedule:
This should leave enough options for you to deal with it, have fun. :)
