On August 16, the Debian community will celebrate that epic Linux distro’s 19th birthday since Ian Murdock’s original founding announcement. As is tradition, the Debian communities all around the world will be celebrating it with Debian Birthday parties.
A Debian Birthday party is a fun event, globally marking the appreciation and the joy of being part of the Debian community and could consist of workshops, talks, or bug squashing parties both virtual and in real life.
Organizing Debian Birthday parties is quite simple it you remember that the goal is to get together with other Debian enthusiasts and have fun. You might decide, for example, to have a key signing party, an installfest, a bug squashing party, or having cake and drinks!

Bristol Wireless will be raising a glass to its favourite distro (as used on our LTSP suites and small business servers) down at our unregistered office.
