Desktop Summit 2011 – the Free Desktop Invades Berlin

Published Sunday August 7th, 2011 | by

Early yesterday, organizers opened the second Desktop Summit in Berlin, with almost 1000 free desktop developers gathering at Humboldt University for the annual Gnome and KDE conferences. Two years ago, both communities held their conferences together for the first time, and decided to continue to cooperate again in 2011.

Traditionally, we at Qt have had a close relationship with KDE, and again this year we are happy to be sponsoring the Desktop Summit.

The conference program is packed with presentations about all kinds of desktop technology for all audiences, from beginners to advanced developers, and – to my personal delight – there is a complete track of community related topics.

We are present with a couple of presentations in the program, with technical topics as well as community related ones. All presentations are recorded and will be made available online after the conference. So don’t worry if you can’t be here in person.

The conference is already well on its way, distros and repos are updated, I have spotted some Qt Ambassadors, and everybody is looking forward to a great event in sunny Berlin.

Damn I so wish I was there. Can’t wait until the videos will be online. But still those can’t substitute the excellent atmosphere that is on conferences like Akademy. Have fun all lucky people and keep on doing the great job of bringing the awesome free(dom) desktops and software to our computers.

Agreed, it was/is a nice event :-)

Too bad I had to leave earlier this morning and am already out of Berlin now :(

Sebastian says:

Hi all thank you for the nice evening yesterday. I had some good talks with some QtTools developers from Berlin and also with a VLC guy.
I’m looking forward to see the videorecordings online (just to put a little presure here) ;-)

@Sebastian: The Desktop Summit team is already post-processing, but it’s also a lot of work for a group of volunteers. I’m sure they will show up as fast as possible. :)

Damn I consequently want I used to be there. Can not wait until the actual movies will probably be on the internet. But still individuals can’t substitute your superb environment which is upon conferences just like Akademy.
