DANTE was founded on 14 April 1989 in the German city of Heidelberg by a handful of TeX enthusiasts who had met formerly on a non-regular basis.
According to its statutes, DANTE consults TeX users from all German-speaking countries. It also represents them vis à vis other TeX users groups.
DANTE runs one of three CTAN backbone servers, dante.ctan.org.
Meetings with additional talks and tutorials are held bi-annually on changing locations all over the German-speaking countries that are free to take part in for everyone interested in TeX.
The member journal, Die TeXnische Komödie, is published quarterly.
DANTE's international counterpart is the TeX Users Group (TUG) that was founded in 1980.
