Akademy-Br 2010 – Too good! April 14, 2010

Posted by Aracele Torres in planetkde-araceletorres.

The Akademy-Br 2010 was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. The event had thirty participants that studied, discussed, planned and programmed a lot in three days in order to help improve KDE. Three days of intense activities and resulted in a very productive meeting. The sprints were divided into two rooms filled with laptops, wires , energy drinks, soft drinks, and a bit of coffee.

Guys in the kde-games sprint

and girls too!
I was part of sprint kde-games, not programming, of course, but studying some code and trying to learn something to also contribute to the  development of software in the future. I also participated in the sprint kde-promo, articulating ideas for dissemination of KDE in the year 2010. The climate of the sprints was very good, we always worked in a relaxed way and I hink that helped us a lot in the success of the groups. We worked all day with breaks for lunch and dinner. At night we went out to drink beer and have some fun. And some did not stop there, also worked till down.

Fun after work, pizza and beer.

Beer and food from Bahia.

The event was very good to strengthen community ties KDE-Br and also to  bring together new forces to the development and promotion of KDE. It is worth mentioning here at least two great resonances of this meeting: the first was the creation of the local group KDE-Pi, as composed by me, Filipe and  Francisco Fernandes (Chicao); and the other was the creation of KDE-Women Brazil, empowered by girls attended the event: me, Amanda, Camila, Taiane, Yasmin and Jordana. The expectations are very good, i hope i can do better by two new groups. A big responsibility and a lot of work ahead.

P.S.: I loved know everybody, especially girls. 😉
