even though this is primarily a Debian event, anybody working on
Reproducible Builds for $project will be much welcome to attend, so that
we can also have a general Reproducible Builds at the same time and an
the same venue! ;)
If enough r-b people attend, we surely can have one or two
meet-ups to discuss or do things. Or just have unscheduled fun and hack
You might even try to submit a talk (suited for a mostly Debian audience),
IMO its always nice to learn how things are done elsewhere. (Though I'm
not on the talks commitee.) - Replace 2019 with 2018 in the wiki URL to
see the previous years schedule.
For registering on the Debian wiki you need an account on the wiki,
which you will easily get following the instructions. If you don't an
account and still want to register, please mail me and I'll gladly
Hoping to see some of you there!

With great joy we are finally offically announcing the Debian MiniDebConf 
which will take place in Hamburg (Germany) from June 5 to 9, with three days of
Debcamp style hacking, followed by two days of talks, workshops and more
hacking. And then, Monday the 10th is also a holiday in Germany (and some other countries),
so you might choose to extend your stay by a day! (Though there will not be an official
schedule for the 10th.)
TL;DR: We're having a MiniDebConf 2019 in Hamburg on June 5-9 .
It's going to be awesome. You should all come! Register now! 
We tried to cut the longer version below a bit shorter and rely more on the wiki.
If some information is missing, please reply to this email and we'll fix it.
Please register now, registration is free and open now until May 23rd.
In order to register, add your name and details to the registration page in the
There's space for approximately 150 people due to limited space in the main
Please register ASAP, as we need this information for planning food and hacking
space size calculations.
## Talks wanted (CfP)
We have assembled a content team (consisting of Michael Banck and Lee Garrett),
who soon will publish an extra post for the CfP. Though you don't need to wait
for that and can already send your proposals to
cfp at minidebconfhamburg.debian.net
We will have talks on Saturday and Sunday, the exact slots are yet to be
determined by the content team.
We expect submissions and talks to be held in English, as this is the working
language in Debian and at this event.
## Debian Sprints
The miniDebcamp from Wednesday to Friday is a perfect opportunity to host Debian
sprints. We would welcome if teams assemble and work together on their projects.
## Sponsors wanted
Making a Mini DebConf happen costs money, we need to rent the venue, video gear,
hopefully can pay hard working volunteers lunch and dinner, probably sponsor some
travel costs and last not least print T-Shirts.
We very much appreciate companies willing to support Debian through this meeting!
We have three sponsor categories:
* >1000€ = sponsor, listed as such in all material and on the t-shirts.
* >2500€ = gold sponsor, listed as such in all material & shirts, logo featured in the videos.
* >5000€ = platinum sponsor, listed as such prominently in all material & shirts, logo featured
prominently in the videos
Plus, there's corporate registration as an option too, where we will charge you
250€ for the registration. Please contact us if you are interested in that!
The event will be hosted in the Victoria Kaserne (also called Fux or Frappant),
which is a collective art space  located in a historical monument. It is
located between S-Altona  and S-Holstenstraße , so there is a direct
subway connection to/from the Hamburg Airport (HAM) and Altona is also a long
distance train station.
There's a Gigabit-Fiber uplink connection and wireless coverage basically
everywhere in the venue and in the outside areas.
More information about the venue is provided in the wiki. 
The Mini-DebConf will take place in the center of Hamburg, so there are many
accomodation options available. Some suggestions for housing options are given
in the wiki  and you might want to share your findings there too.
There is also limited on-site accomodation available, please send a mail to
holgere at d.o if you'd like to stay on site
## More volunteers wanted
Some things still need more helping hands:
We need some volunteers for frontdesk duties, which mostly means being at the
venue in the morning before things start (though if possible frontdesk should
be operated throughout the day)and help people find their way.
We also need more video volunteers. We know the gear will arrive, together with
a person knowing how to operate it, but that's it. Please consider
making sure we'll have videos released! ;) (And streams hopefully too.)
In general, if you notice something to improve, try to be the change you want to see.
If you want to help, need help, have comments or want to contact us for other
reasons, there are several ways:
* the irc channel #debconf-hamburg on irc.debian.org
* the mailing list debian-events-eu at lists.debian.org
* editing the wiki page of the  which will notify us
Looking forward to see you in Hamburg!
Holger, for the 2019 Mini DebConf Hamburg team
