I’d like to highlight that this year, and for the first time, this conference was to take place in Hispanic America, with Chile being the host country, but the unfortunate event of the earthquake forced the organisation to move it to Galicia instead. The local LUG (GPUL) has a lot of experience organising this kind of events (including the second edition of GUADEC-ES, which also took place here), so I’m sure we’ll all have a great time.
And after that me and a bunch of other Igalians are flying to the Netherlands to attend GUADEC. I had a great time in that country last year during the Maemo Summit and I was already looking forward to returning. This year I don’t have a talk as such at GUADEC, but I’ll be at the GNOME developer training sessions along with Dave Neary, Fernando Herrera and Claudio Saavedra, helping people to learn how to make the most of the GNOME development platform.
And as usual, GUADEC and GUADEC-ES are sponsored by Igalia and many of us are giving several talks in both conferences.
Hope to meet you there!
