Buster Release Party – Cambridge, UK

Debian ,FLOSS
July 8, 2019

With the release of Debian GNU/Linux 10.0.0 “Buster” completing in the small hours of yesterday morning (0200hrs UTC or thereabouts) most of the ‘release parties’ had already been and gone…. Not so for the Cambridge contingent who had scheduled a get together for the Sunday [0], knowing that various attendees would have been working on the release until the end.

The Sunday afternoon saw a gathering in the Haymakers pub to celebrate a successful release.   We would publicly like to thank the Raspberry Pi foundation [1], and Mythic Beasts [2] who between them picked up the tab for our bar bill – Cheers and thank you!





Ian and Sean also managed to join us, taking time out from the dgit sprint that had been running since Friday [3].

For most of the afternoon we had the inside of the pub all to ourselves.   

This was a friendly and low key event as we decompressed from the previous day’s activities, but we were also joined many other DDs, users and supporters, mostly hanging out in the garden but I confess to staying most of the time indoors in the shade and with a breeze through the pub…

Laptops are still needed even at a party

The start of the next project…
