What is Debian?
Debian was the earliest Linux distribution to be open for every developer and user to contribute their work. It continues to be the most significant distributor of Linux that is not a commercial entity (and even then, a number of commercial entities base their distributions on Debian).
What was this event about?
As Debian remains a key part of the Linux ecosystem, this miniconf and mini-DebConf collected together people from across the distros as there are a number of common interests.
linux.conf.au is one of the foremost open source conferences in the world, and is considered the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. It is a week long, beginning with two days of mini-conferences on a huge variety of topics and then 3 days for the main conference. LCA2015 was held in Auckland, NZ in January 2015.

What is a miniconf?
Miniconfs are one-day miniature conferences, within the main linux.conf.au conference, which are targeted towards specific communities of interest and offer delegates an opportunity to network with other enthusiasts while immersing themselves in a specific topic or project..
DebConf is the annual Debian conference which is held in a different country every year. DebConf15 will be held in Heidelberg, Germany in August 2015. A mini-DebConf is a much smaller event which is typically regional.
