The Debian Conference held in Helsinki, Finland was a great success with over 300 attendees and more than 20 sponsors. The conference featured talks, workshops, demonstrations, coding marathons, and round table discussions on various aspects of the Debian project. Highlights included a presentation about the large-scale deployment of Debian workstations in Extramadura, Spain, and several talks about popular Debian derivatives such as Skolelinux and Ubuntu. The conference broke several records, making it the largest Debian conference ever. The Debian Project Leader, Branden Robinson, was impressed with the performance of the event.
