hanging out at froscon

KDE

Arrived in Bonn / St. Augustin yesterday, where this morning FrOSCon has been kicked off. This is the second time the local user group organises this conference and I must say that this is certainly one of the most relaxed conferences I've ever been to. Highlights include good drinks to keep you running (Go Mate!), couches, wifi available already before the conference started, good beer and a lot of nice gimmicks such as the bouncy castle. The atmosphere is very friendly, quite some KDE-related peeps here, especially Amarok and KDE friendly projects such as Kubuntu, Sidux, Skolelinux FreeBSD and inevitable the FSFE. The conference is quite a bit more busy than it was last year, and last one of the gods that make the weather decided to put up sunny, not to hot and above all dry skies on top of this conference. During my idle time, I talked a bit with Olaf about using Javascript in website and how this can be done in a way so it's accessible for everyone. I'll probably work a bit on websites during this weekend to make it so. Talk is cheap.

Friday, after arrival, we took on the task of making sure the BBQ works and the beer is of high quality, I'm glad to announce that both failed none of our tests, so we were rather safe for saturday night -- same exercise. photos. My talk on Saturday about KDE4 went really well.
