Here at Akademy in Almería, we have moved from the conference portion — two days of talks at the University — to the hacking week portion. The conference days were very busy; most of the talks were recorded and those recordings will be up when they’re done post-processing. I haven’t heard a date for that yet.
Cake is a theme. I don’t know who bakes them or where they come from, but the shout on IRC that there is fresh-baked, still-warm cake and coffee in the hall near the team room is an event to drop everything for.
I missed BoFs yesterday that I wanted to go to — I guess I was wrapped up in hacking and talking to people outside of the scheduled activities. Today I spotted a Calamares BoF — not one I scheduled, mind, but apparently people think I should be doing more work.
At the end of each hack-week day, there is a BoF wrap-up for those attendees who could not be everywhere at once, and also for people outside of Akademy who want to know what has been worked on. Yesterday’s wrap-up was lots of “we discussed this-and-that”, I imagine today is going to start moving into “we built something”. So, for everyone at Akademy: be in the big hall downstairs at 18:00; for others, catch the video later (yay, shameless self-promotion!)
