Debian Day 30 years in São Carlos - Brazil20/08/2023 por
This year's Debian day was a pretty special one, we are celebrating 30 years! Giving the importance of this event, the Brazilian community planned a very special week. Instead of only local gatherings, we had a week of online talks streamed via Debian Brazil's youtube channel (soon the recordings will be uploaded to Debian's peertube instance). Nonetheless the local celebrations happened around the country and I've organized one in São Carlos with the help of GELOS, the FLOSS group at University of São Paulo.
The event happened on August 19th and went on the whole afternoon. We had some talks about Debian and free software (see table below), a coffee break where we had the chance to talk, and finished with a group photo (check this one and many others below). Actually, it wasn't the end, we carried on the conversation about Debian and free software in a local bar :-)
We had around 30 people in the event and reached a greater audience via the announcements across the university's press releases and emails sent to our Brazilian mailing lists. You can check some of them below.
- Local campus press release
- Computing institute press release
- Engineering institute press release
- Federal institute press release
- Debian-br-eventos email
