Akademy 2013, I’m coming!

It is less than a week now. I’m very excited to attend Akademy 2013, the annual KDE Conference, this year for the second time. I just got my Spain visa few mins back.

This year, it will be hosted in Bilbao, Basque country of Spain. Along with +Devaja Shah, i will be talking on ” A Revolution in itself “. It will focus on KDE India and will highlight KDE Meetup 2013, held in India, the successes, the obstacles, the entire journey and the outcomes and also how it influenced and impacted the lives of many such young students who were inspired to contribute and to bring about a revolution by contributing to open source and KDE. It will be an indication and motivation for organizing many more such events in future. If you are planning to attend, do not forget to register yourself here.

I will like to thanks KDE e.V. for sponsoring my travel and giving me opportunity to interact and share thoughts with awesome community people which will be life changing experience again!

    Congrats and Bon Voyage in advance. I am KDE user (not in IT but not a developer of any kind) from Chennai, Tamil Nadu and have been toying with the idea of attending the first two days of conference – just to see the KDE team and absorb KDE’s future perspectives and see Spain.
    Have few queries – Do you think this is a good idea for me to attend? Also, how difficult is to get visa and make other arrangements? I am hoping I am not too late in planning for the trip. I can sponsor myself and even intend to visit few more places.
    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks Anand.
    It is really nice to know that you use KDE.
    Yeah, it will be great to have you there. Though, you can also catch videos of all the talks after Akademy gets over. Visa wont be that much problem. Flights will be bit costly now. Let me know if you are planning for it.
