Humboldt University

Yeah, I know it’s a bit too early for this, but from this year’s experience at the Berlin Desktop Summit, I’m not going to miss the next Akademy.

So, I’m finally back home after the Desktop Summit! It was the first time I met most of the KDE devs and even had the opportunity to help a bit in the organisation of such a wonderful conference.

The location chosen was really nice: Berlin is a beautiful city, German people is very receptive (and helpful!) to foreigners, its transport system is a dream (specially if you compare to what we have here in Brasil, unfortunately), and one can easily get all kinds of food. Everything without knowing a single word in German!

Chani's lightning talk

The Humboldt University provided us with a good Internet connection and big rooms for the talks and for the hacking sessions and is located in the hearth of Berlin, with lots of historical buildings, pubs and restaurants nearby, making our stay in Berlin a pleasure. The conference featured a lot of high quality talks and, together with the workshops, BoF’s and experience exchange, gave everyone a nice overview of the projects we usually don’t know much (both in KDE and Gnome).

Thomas Thym talk about conflict management

Another good thing is that we had quite a lot of Brazilians attending the conference this year, so it looks like our local community is growing up \o/. Keep up, guys!

In the following picture, you can see (from left to right) Ufa, Camila Ayres, Filipe Saraiva, Aracele Torres, Lamarque Vieira and sitting on the floor you’ll find me.

That was my first participation on a Desktop Summit/Akademy, but I’ll attend the next year’s Akademy for sure. It was a very valuable experience and interacting with/knowing the KDE people is really motivating. See you on Akademy 12!

As you all know we just returned from the Akademy-Br, it was a great experience, mostly because we get to know a lot of people that like the same things (and understand our jokes hehehe), but also because being in a closed envirment with lots of coffe and coke and people that can help programing makes everyone more productive, for my part I can only say that I’ve made mutch on my little contribution to the kde-games that I started from zero in the first akademy day.

The game’s name is Kingdom, it’s a card game all about conquering the stars, the project isn’t even pre-alfa, but at least I’ve made the basic engine and started to work on the graphics, but it will take me some time to finish it, altought I would have never come this far without the motivation that only a sprint can give.

After I finish reconfiguring my system (wich could mean a several days) I’ll post some pictures here, both of the game (even it’s nothing but a board with white rectangles writted with the name of the card) and the akademy, though it will be dificult to found one in wich I’m not programing…

Be writing soon: Live Blue, and prosper _\\//
