DebConf19, the 20th annual Debian Conference, is taking place in Curitiba, Brazil from from July 21 to 28, 2019.
Debian contributors from all over the world have come together at Federal University of Technology - Paraná (UTFPR) in Curitiba, Brazil, to participate and work in a conference exclusively run by volunteers.
Today the main conference starts with over 350 attendants expected and 121 activities scheduled, including 45- and 20-minute talks and team meetings ("BoF"), workshops, a job fair as well as a variety of other events.
The full schedule at https://debconf19.debconf.org/schedule/ is updated every day, including activities planned ad-hoc by attendees during the whole conference.
If you want to engage remotely, you can follow the video streaming available from the DebConf19 website of the events happening in the three talk rooms: Auditório (the main auditorium), Miniauditório and Sala de Videoconferencia. Or you can join the conversation about what is happening in the talk rooms: #debconf-auditorio, #debconf-miniauditorio and #debconf-videoconferencia (all those channels in the OFTC IRC network).
You can also follow the live coverage of news about DebConf19 on https://micronews.debian.org or the @debian profile in your favorite social network.
DebConf is committed to a safe and welcome environment for all participants. During the conference, several teams (Front Desk, Welcome team and Anti-Harassment team) are available to help so both on-site and remote participants get their best experience in the conference, and find solutions to any issue that may arise. See the web page about the Code of Conduct in DebConf19 website for more details on this.
