h2. Project name: DebConf

h3. Project purpose and goal(s)

p. DebConf ( ) is the annual meeting for parties interested
  on Debian GNU/Linux-BSD ( ) open and free software distribution.
  Debian Developers join DebConf annual event and have the opportunity to meet with
  Debian interested parties: companies doing activities on free and open source activities,
  other open and free software projects and individuals interested).

p. DebConf11 ( ) is held this year at Banja Luka, Bosnia and
  Herzegovina. As well as Debian, DebConf, is organized by community members which make
  sure that everything is in place before schedule to be able to stream and record the talks
  and presentations, to organize accomodation and food sponsorship for all those requesting it,
  to sponsor travel for all those attendees that request it. All this effort would not be possible
  without our valuable sponsors, which Qt and Nokia have done in the past.

h3. How the project relates to using Qt

p. DebConf is a social event where developers have the opportunity to meet and discuss better
  practices to improve current status on Debian operative system. Qt is a key component of Debian
  and base core of KDE desktop, which Debian distributes for more than 11 different architectures
  (including x86_32, x86_64, arm (soft), arm (hardfp), mips, mipsel, m68k, hppa, alpha, ia64, s390, ..) and different kernel bases as BSD, Linux or Hurd.
