Alt Happy Birthday Debian by Juliette Taka - click to enlarge

Today is Debian's 29th anniversary. We recently wrote about some ideas to celebrate the DebianDay, and several events have been planned in more than 14 locations. You can join the party or organise something yourselves too!

Today is also an opportunity for you to start or resume your contributions to Debian. For example, you can have a look at our list of Debian Teams, install the how-can-i-help package and see if there is a bug in any of the software that you use that you can help to fix, start designing your artwork candidate for the next release, contribute small tips on how to install Debian on your machines to our wiki pages https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/, or put a Debian live image in an USB memory and give it to some person near you, who still didn't discover Debian.

Our favorite operating system is the result of all the work we do together. Thanks to everybody who has contributed in these 29 years, and happy birthday Debian!


Debian Day 2022 - call for celebration

On Mon 08 August 2022 with tags debian birthday
Written by The Debian Publicity Team

Translations: pt-BR

Every year on August 16th, the anniversary of the Debian Project takes place. And several communities around the world celebrate this date by organizing local meetings in an event called "Debian Day".

So, how about celebrating the 29th anniversary of the Debian Project in 2022 in your city?

We invite you and your local community to organize Debian Day by hosting an event with talks, workshops, bug squashing party, OpenPGP keysigning, etc. Or simply holding a meeting between people who like Debian in a bar/pizzeria/cafeteria/restaurant to celebrate. In other words, any type of meeting is valid!

But remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet, so take all necessary measures to protect attendees.

As the 16th of August falls on a Tuesday, if you think it's better to organize it during the weekend, no problem. The importance is to celebrate the Debian Project.

Remember to add your city to the Debian Day wiki page

There is a list of Debian Local Groups around the world. If your city is listed, talk to them to organize DebianDay together.

Let's use hashtags #DebianDay #DebianDay2022 on social media.
