Debian Developersâ Workshop â" Program Details
Saturday April 8, 2006 2:00pm-6:00pm
at the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore
The Debian Developersâ Workshop is planned as a get together of
those who are either contributing to the Debian Project as
developers or in the path to contributing to this project.
The objective of the workshop is facilitating face-to-face
interaction among developers and therefore substantial time is
allocated to hands-on work. During this time, you can show the
problems you are facing and potentially seek help from others or
demonstrate your work and generate feedback and more
participation. Several links are added to the DebianIndia Yahoo!
group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DebianIndia/ to support your
preparation to participate.
This event is planned to be in the workshop format, meaning all
participants will present their work and interest in the Debian
Project. Limit the presentation plus demo plus Q&A to about 15
minutes per package. The presentations are expected to follow the
broad template as follows:
1. What is the scope of the work?
2. Packages (if applicable), sub-projects (e.g., Debian.IN)
3. Sharing your progress and experience.
4. Challenges, hurdles.
5. Support required.
Please load your presentations at the âFilesâ section in the
DebianIndia group before the workshop.
Key-signing: The two Debian Developers, Ganesan Rajagopal and
Ramakrishnan M. have agreed to participate and support key signing.
If you are interested to make use of this opportunity for key
signing, please contact them expressing your interest in advance
with the following details of yours by e-mail (Name, contact
details, GPG key ID and fingerprint.) You are expected to bring two
photo IDs identifying yourself. Please bring the originals and hand
over a copy to the developer with whom you are interacting.
This workshop is not a training or tutorial program. If you are not
working with Debian as a developer in the project
(http://www.debian.org/devel/) nor are interested to grow into one,
you are unlikely to benefit from participating in the workshop.
