I am currently waiting for my flight to Manchester to attend another GUADEC!
This year I am also giving a presentation about the application story in Endless OS. Our infrastructure, our changes to GNOME Software, our heavy use of Flatpak, etc. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting.
A good number of Endlessers will also be around and giving other talks. We’re friendly people, so come talk to us!
Many thanks to Endless for making it possible for me to attend the event, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone again!
That’s right, tomorrow I will take the train down to Karlsruhe to attend GUADEC 2016 after a 3-year absence (time flies!).
I am looking forward to meeting old friends and attending some nice talks and BOF events. At Endless we have been very busy working on our next release of the Endless OS and some of my colleagues are giving very interesting talks related to our work so be sure to check them out! I have been working on the applications story which will be using Flatpak and GNOME Software so if you are interested in knowing more about that we can have a chat too.
For the first time since I first started attending GUADEC in 2009, this year I am not going.
Strasbourg is very close to where I live (about four hours driving) but some factors just make it very difficult to attend the conference this year. We have a guest over and I didn’t want to go by myself because, even though Olivia is a very relaxed baby, I still notice how I am more tired than usual and it would be risky to drive all alone (besides, it’d leave all the responsibility of taking care of the baby to Helena). Taking everybody there could be an option but I could only go for the weekend anyway and, since we’re going for vacation a week after the event, logistics and timing are just not convenient.
I will surely miss having a beer with old friends.
Have a great GUADEC!
