Just as proof that we really were at the desktop summit in Berlin: We Kate developers sat one evening together for dinner. From left to right: Kate’s plugin master, the Holy Belliness, KDevelop, Gnome, Kate Finder, Kate Vi Mode, Kate Snippets (and myself not visible, taking the photo)
Last year we already discovered that Kate is truly the only holy text editor* (again thanks to rms for making us aware of it)! (and btw, xkcd is totally wrong). And now we even have yet another proof: The holy Kate maintainer and the naked woman! Enjoy
(*) this is an insider from the joint KDE and Gnome conference (gcds) in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, 2009.
My first Akademy was the greatest thing I’ve ever experienced. I remember I was quite unsure a month ago, wheter to come or not, but finally decided and booked my flight and hotel. In my first day, I was very shy and didn’t know what to do, but people came and talked to me and everything got better. The talks had very interesting topics and the speakers did their job professionally. I also want to congratulate the organization team, for making everything happen as scheduled.
The BoFs at Demola were even more interesting. You go there, find a place to sit, and start hacking with many other KDE developers. I never did this before and it is simply amazing. You can’t believe the things that can come out from these hacking days/nights :).
I have never thought that KDE is such a great community, but now I am convinced. Akademy gave me a lot of confidence ( especially “Highlights on KDE Women” talk ) and now I really feel I can bring something to KDE. I am a little sad because I couldn’t attend the whole Akademy, but I think that more Akademies are to come :).
