FOSDEM 2014

I'm going to FOSDEM for 2014, are you? FOSDEM is a massive free software meeting with more projects than you knew existed. We need help on the KDE stall. We also need visitors in the devroom. Finally we need KDE people to come and eat pizza on Saturday evening. Add yourself to the wiki page if you want to help KDE at FOSDEM.

Usage Stats

Kexi usage statistics is an experiment started two years along with Kexi 2.4. The information helps to make certain decisions related to design and direction of the project. Today I'd like to show you first results.

On every startup of Kexi, background job sends anonymous information to project's kexi-project.org server. User's privacy is a top priority here; users need to opt-in by enabling Share usage info option at Kexi startup. For detailed idea and plans behind the effort, click the "?" mark in the startup window, here's a copy of the text. Naturally, the raw data is never presented online.

We're having a great meeting here in Munich, last night we collected a range of topics to chat about and today we've been moving post-it notes about as we discuss topics and fix problems. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Barcelona: KDE Frameworks Dragons and KDE Allotment

It's little advertised but KDE has an office in Barcelona. With Scotland getting cold, dark and wet I set off in search of sun and colleagues to have a change of scene and improve my health after a surgeon poked needles into my eye.

Night at the Museum with Linuxcon

Linuxcon ended in spectacular style with a party at the National Museum of Scotland, shown here with the interesting addition of a full marching band. Dolly the sheep was supposed to be on display but ran off at the sound of the bagpipes.
