Akademy 2008 Conference Program: http://akademy.kde.org/conference/program.php
My talk is on the second day :-). I am marking talks that I am very interested in attending. So far I have marked the following talks:
- KDE Community websites: The past, the present and a vision for the future
- KDE And Asia – The Divide : Technical or/and Cultural: This is very interesting. The title and outline is very interesting..
- Future of the KDE Development Model
- Plasma Frenzy
- Deepening KDE and Qt collaboration
- Amarok 2 – Embracing the Future of Music
- How Graphics View Works
- Gallium3D – Graphics Done Right
- OpenDocument support in KWord 2
Apart from this, there is of-course the excitement of meeting the KDE devs.. Marble, Amarok and the KParts devs are ones that I absolutely want to meet. The excitement is beginning to build up 🙂
I am now officially engaged to Nandini.
She is an MCA from JNNCE, the same college that I graduated from. Currently she is working for SAP Labs. Yeah she is a developer too 🙂
After a long weekend of celebrations and meeting the folks, am now back to work.
Preperations for Akademy 2008 is going good.. My presentation is more or less ready.. I am practicing to make sure that the talk+demo takes just about 25 minutes of time. Am trying to learn as much as possible about KParts to ensure that I can take questions on GCF/KParts comparison. I just received an email from Claudia that my travel would be sponsored. Yay!!!.
Work wise, we have just entered an agreement with KDAB. They are going to be the official and exclusive resale, marketing and technology partners for GCF. From August onwards a commercial version of GCF called KDCF will be sold exclusively by KDAB throughout the world. All support and business will be routed through them. We are excited about this partnership with KDAB. It gives us a good platform to learn from one of the best in the field; and also make good money doing that 🙂
My personal life is getting super-good this year. I am going to get hitched soon 🙂 :). The engagement would be this Friday (27th of June) and the wedding would be on the 6th of November. More about this and my “better half” in my next blog.
Its been one good news after another for the past few weeks.. lot of reasons to be happy of late 🙂
