DebConf 16 is taking place in Cape Town from 2 July to 9 July and preceded by DebCamp from 23 June to 1 July. The news this weekend is that registration is now open for DebConf 16. The venue of this year's event is the University of Cape Town.
DebConf 16 is made possible by HP Enterprise being a platinum sponsor while Valve and Google are gold sponsors. It's not too surprising to see Valve's involvement given that they rely upon Debian for their SteamOS, they heavily promote the Debian-derived Ubuntu as a Linux gaming OS, etc. Valve has made kind gestures in the past to Debian such as providing free access to all of their games to Debian developers.
If you are interested in now registering for DebConf '16, you can now do so via the DebConf.org site.
