DebConf 2014 - First Days

The first three days of DebConf 2014 are over. This is my first DebConf ever, being a long-time Debian user but only recently come into the community as an active contributor, and now seems like a good opportunity to take a few minutes and write about my experience here so far.

First off, I'm not entirely sure what I was expecting DebConf to be or what I was expecting to get out of it. I think for all conferences I've been to, the most valuable thing has been seeing people talk about the projects that matter to them and rediscovering why I use and work on free software. So, certainly that, plus just being around and absorbing as much Debian as possible, which is seriously lacking in my normal circles.
