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

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,
