Not nearly as close as FOSDEM, but still coming up on the KDE Community calendar: Akademy 2018. It’s in Vienna. I vaguely remember visiting Vienna once, long ago — possibly an FSFE function. So it’s high time to head out that way again to visit the local KDE team and to see what 2017-2018 has brought (and will bring) the KDE community.
Of course, to hear from the community, the community needs to speak! The call for participation is open, so send something in to the programme committee. Check out the list of potential topics — a lot of stuff can fit.
Personally, I’d like to give a talk on Calamares — which isn’t a KDE project, but which is used by various distro’s that ship KDE versions (e.g. Manjaro, Netrunner, KDE Neon dev, KaOS, Kannolo). Not really sure which parts of Calamares to present, but something will fit. And as a packager, I’d really like to see a panel-ish thing with OpenSUSE, KDE Neon, FreeBSD and other distro’s on stage talking about the KDE packaging process in the traditional sense. After that, Flatpak can take over 🙂
But for everyone in the KDE community: what have you done, what are you doing, and where are you going? Share it with us and with the world at Akademy 2018.
