I am sitting here in a Cafe on Münster Airport after an exciting weekend at the KDE PIM meeting in Osnabrück.
Being a first-timer I was really looking forward to it and I wasn't disappointed.
Although my travelling to the event turned out to be quite adventurous because my connection flight from Frankfurt to Münster got cancelled due to strong winds and the airline had to re-booked me on a train ride for the rest of the journey.
Good evening from Osnabrück; Tom shares some facts from the day 1 with you, so all I have now (before putting my hand on svn commit) is some graphics. Recently (except for updating opensuse) I have switched from winnt5 to winnt6 on my notebook (thanks Adriaan!).
One of the nice aspects of being a software developer is that sometimes users come up with using your software in creative ways you never have thought of. They discover surprise features. I particularly like these because they show that you have great users and they often also are a sign that you took some right design decisions.
Once again we have friends visiting, here at the KDAB Berlin office. So far Will Stephenson, Bruno Virlet, Thomas McGuire, Volker Krause and Kris Koehntopp have arrived for a weekend of Akonadi hacking. Kris (of MySQL) has kindly agreed to have a look at our usage of their system and point out the various errors of our ways. It's already been very productive, we now have a much better idea of what not to do and how to debug what we are currently doing.
As i'm currently very busy with university in these days, and also i've to code both kde3 and kde4 branches, i was wondering if someone is willing to contribute with a not-too-complex application to be rewritten.
Well it's a long time since my last blog entry, but i was almost busy.
In my personal life, there were no big changes, so it's almost annoying blogging about it.
In the meantime KMobileTools had a great speedup, helped also by the joining of Matthias Lechner, who almost finished the gammu engine.
