And suddenly February is over and March is here. If you took some of our advice to stay warm in February, we might have seen you at the Debian Bug Squashing Party last weekend. And if you missed it, we thought we would share our efforts with you. A Debian Bug Squashing Party is a real-life or virtual event where Debian developers and Debian enthusiasts come together to fix as many bugs as possible in the new Debian stretch.
Welcome to 2017! As winter is holding Berlin in it’s icy grip, we have come up with a few things you could do in February to keep yourself warm and busy at the same time. Though we might have been a bit quiet in January, we have used this month to prepare a few events for February that you should definitely consider joining – and not just for the benefit of our working heaters.
We’re almost done with 2016 and while on a global scale, this year has been a bit rocky, we have various reasons to look back and be proud of what we have achieved. We have been contributing to Open Source projects: to ConnMan, to systemd, to fleet, to Kubernetes, to the NGINX Ingress Controller, to ofono, to python-oca, to skydns, to the Mattermost LDAP Plugin and a few more. Oh and we also created a tool to create, update and rollout Kubernetes resource yamls from a template.
It’s the season to be jolly… – wait, what? Oh. It’s GDG DevFest Season 2016. Yes. GDG DevFests are large, community-run events that offer speaker sessions across multiple product areas, all-day hack-a-thons, code labs, and more. In 2016, the official DevFest Season runs from September 01st through November 30th. These events are organized by the Google Developer Groups worlwide, and the Google Developer Groups of Berlin are organizing their fest on the 11th/12th of November.
