Bringing people together: The MiniDebConf Curitiba
On March from 17th to 19 (Friday to Sunday) Curitiba will host a MiniDebConf consists of lectures, workshops and social events. MiniDebConf Curitiba 2017 is an open house event, regardless of their level of knowledge about Debian. The most important is to gather the community to celebrate the biggest Free Software project in the world, so we want to welcome from inexperienced users to official Debian Developers. That is, are all invited!
MiniDebConf are local meetings organized by the Debian Project members to achieve objectives similar to those of DebConf, but in a regional context. During all year (a number of) MiniDebConfs are organized around the world, as can be seen on this page.
This will be the second time a MiniDebConf along these lines, with three days dedicated exclusively to Debian, held in Brazil.
In 2016 they happened two events dedicated to Debian, one of them was the first edition of MiniDebConf Curitiba:
And in 2015 they happened three smaller events:
In 2004 Brazil hosted in Porto Alegre the 5th edition of DebConf.

We have assembled a very interesting set of talks, appealing both to newcomers and to old time Debian Developers, with well known speakers as well as speakers that will be given their first talk outside of their local LUG. It promisses to be a very exciting weekend!
To participate in practical activities such as workshops, it is essential to bring the notebook with Debian already installed. If you do not know how to install Debian on your notebook, no problem, staff will help install during the event.
On Sunday we will have a free time for people present short talks (five minutes or less) on any subject they want to talk. If you want to make a lightning talk, please add in our wiki.
