      Debian Developers’ Workshop â€" Program Details
      Saturday April 8, 2006 2:00pm-6:00pm
      at the International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore

      The Debian Developers’ 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 “Files” 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.

      Registration: Please visit the DebianIndia group:
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DebianIndia/ and respond to the poll
      about your participation. There is no registration fee.
