More Info: http://www.webb.it/
Webb.it is the largest computer and technology meeting in Italy, for hobbyists and professionals alike. Webb.it is an event dedicated to software development and programming, web design and graphics, new media, hardware, networking and even marketing and business.
About 1200 "resident" participants will attend WebbitCon with their computers, to live and sleep in the Arena, always connected to the high-speed intranet, with a 156 MBit/s connection to the internet. Others will be there to attend some of the more than 300 workshops (WebbitEdu) organized by software and hardware companies and user communities. Other visitors will just hang around in the area outside of the arena where the sponsors and various companies will have their booths (WebbitPro).
Debian will be present with some space in the Free Software Island, a big area built from two WebbitCon Islands, with 2 workshop rooms (with big plasma displays), 8 mini-stands (Debian will have one) and about 60 networked places for visitors and Debian users.
Some Debian developers and enthusiasts will be there to install GNU/Linux on visitors' machines and help anybody wishing to switch from proprietary to free software... After a long time this is another opportunity to put names and email addresses to faces and personalities. Debian developers will also hold some talks and demonstrations in the workshop space of the Island.
