No news is good news.
DebConf is an opportunity to learn about the latest updates to Debian and to talk about the next steps and long-term direction of the project with the people who are making it happen. Hudson River Trading runs on Debian and is proud to annually sponsor an event that brings together such a talented community and supports its continued development.
It's an honor to attend DebConf and participate with such an extraordinary group of people working together for software freedom. Attending DebConf always fires me up to do more for the Debian community and gives me hope for the future of our technology.
