[ This announcement has been doing the rounds of LUGs lately; hopefully
  some of you are interested despite it being a long way away. ]

The annual Debian Developers' Conference 2007 is taking place in
Edinburgh, Scotland, this summer, with around 400 developers attending
from around the world.
As a prelude to the main conference itself, a public open day will be
held on Saturday 16th June. The aim of this event is to explain to the
general public what Debian involves, and to demonstrate the benefits
that Debian and free software can bring.
There will be a number of talks throughout the day, as well as a series
of hands on demonstrations.  Events will be suitable for both a technical
and non-technical audience.
Confirmed guest speakers include:
 * Bdale Garbee - Linux CTO, Hewlet-Packard
 * Patrick Harvie - Green Party MSP
 * Knut Yrvin - Trolltech Ltd
 * Andreas Ehn - CTO, Spotify AB
The event will take place in Teviot Row House, Bristo Place,
Edinburgh, EH8 9AL, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. It is free to attend,
but those planning to come are encouraged to register online at
