Toronto’s “mini-sprint”, and Sydney’s KDE/FOSS Community

During the holidays I met up with Eugene Trounev, (aka it-s), one of KDE’s awesome artists to discuss our reorganisation of KDE.org and the design aspects of it (which is coming soon in the series). It was a 2-day meeting and it was my first time meeting another KDE enthusiast face-to-face, as given my inconvenient geographical location in Malaysia I don’t know anybody else here. I won’t post the outcome of the sprint here but it will be released periodically with the rest of my kde-www war series. It was extremely useful and awesome of course (and yes, lots did get done), and since no photos were taken, here is one of a random conifer tree to make up for it:

I’ve just arrived in Sydney, Australia to get ready for my upcoming year of university, and so I wanted to quickly throw out the question to see if anybody in the KDE / Blender / FOSS crowd lives there. If you do, throw me an email/comment and if there isn’t an existing community, let’s start one :D

I've been developing software for well over 10 years, work as an architect (not the computer kind, the regular sort), and am classically trained as a pianist. I try to do the right thing when I get the chance in my field, such as through contributing to open-source communities and promoting sustainable living.

  1. Dang it!

    I’m a KDE lovin’ artist based just outside of Toronto working on websites (I did Krita.org). How did I hear nothing of this?! Would love to hear about anything similar happening again in TO beforehand!

    Thanks!

  2. Sorry about that :)

    It was discussed in #kde-www on freenode, so perhaps hang around there. In the future with the improved site it’ll be much easier to publisize stuff like this properly.

  3. Heh. I’m actually ex-australian, too. :) Small world!

    Would still love to see some KDE-TO stuff happening if any of the lurkers are reading!
