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.

Please add your event/activity on the DebianDay wiki page and let us know about and advertise it on Debian micronews. To share it, you have several options:

  • Follow the steps listed here for Debian Developers.
  • Contact us using IRC in channel #debian-publicity on the OFTC network, and ask us there.
  • Send a mail to debian-publicity@lists.debian.org 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.
