Unfortunately I couldnt attend any of the talks at DevConf other than the fine opening keynote by Eirik Chamb-Eng (Trolltech). Too much work to do, too much of a cold having occupied the deep end of my throat. The cold makes my voice sound like I could have a lot of guys drifting towards me -- if I were a female. It also makes me sweat the hell out of my pores at night, preventing me from sleep most of the time, and getting me to arrive late at aKademy. The work was mainly related to prepare the tutorial rooms, get the HP notebooks in shape, and hand them out to developers in need. A lot of the work around the notebook installation was done by our local helper team, consisting mostly of the local CCC -- thanks and kudos to them! The notebooks are a loan from HP Germany for the duration of aKademy. Thanks HP -- it is great to see your support for this KDE conference having grown so immensely in the last 2 weeks.
