So, its that time of year again, the annual meeting of all things KDE… Akademy! This year it is coming to you from Tallin, Estonia. This year will be my 6th outing to the event
Of course, KDE is very dear to me and to Kolab and so, in addition to me, there will be a few other members of the Kolab community will meet at this year’s Akademy. Key contributors Christian Mollekopf and Jeroen van Meeuwen will be present and available to discuss Kolab related issues. Jeroen will also give a talk about release engineering processes using KDE as an example. His experience from the Fedora Project, Cyrus IMAP, Cyrus SASL and from his roleas a Systems Architect at Kolab Systems provides him with ample experience to give some insight into how release engineering and quality assurance within the fast-paced KDE project could be improved further.
The Kolaborators will also be taking part in a Task Management sprint featuring Zanshin and Kolab developers. If you are interested in task management in KDE, you are invited to join. The sprint will focus on counting work into bringing Zanshin-like experience to Kolab on the desktop and web. This meeting will take place during the workshop week after the main conference; no date or time has been set yet, but if you track down me, Christian or Kevin Ottens we’ll work it out.
Akademy is one of my favourite conferences of the year and I’m really excited to be catching up with my KDE buddies. If you want to talk about Kolab (or anything else) just come track me down… I’ll be around until Wednesday.
