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

Today is also an opportunity for you to start or resume your contributions to Debian. For example, you can scratch your creative itch and suggest a wallpaper to be part of the artwork for the next release, have a look at the DebConf20 schedule and register to participate online (August 23rd to 29th, 2020), or put a Debian live image in a DVD or USB and give it to some person near you, who still didn't discover Debian.

Let's celebrate DebianDay 2020 around the worldOn Wed 22 July 2020 with tags debian birthday

We encourage our community to celebrate around the world the 27th Debian anniversary with organized DebianDay events. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic we cannot organize in-person events, so we ask instead that contributors, developers, teams, groups, maintainers, and users promote The Debian Project and Debian activities online on August 16th (and/or 15th).
Communities can organize a full schedule of online activities throughout the day. These activities can include talks, workshops, active participation with contributions such as translations assistance or editing, debates, BoFs, and all of this in your local language using tools such as Jitsi for capturing audio and video from presenters for later streaming to YouTube.
If you are not aware of any local community organizing a full event or you don't want to join one, you can solo design your own activity using OBS and stream it to YouTube. You can watch an OBS tutorial here.
Don't forget to record your activity as it will be a nice idea to upload it to Peertube later.
- Follow the steps listed here for Debian Developers.
- Contact us using IRC in channel
#debian-publicityon the OFTC network, and ask us there.
- Send a mail to email@example.com and ask for your item to be included in micronews. This is a publicly archived list.
PS: DebConf20 online is coming! It will be held from August 23rd to 29th, 2020. Registration is already open.
