Weeeeee! Akademy and Qtcon approaching fast



Thanks to the Ubuntu Community Fund, I'm able to fly to Berlin and attend, and volunteer too. Thanks so much, Ubuntu community for backing me, and to the KDE e.V. and KDE community for creating and running Akademy.

This year, Akademy is part of Qtcon, which should be exciting. Lots of our friends will be there, from KDAB, VLC, Qt and FSFE. And of course Kubuntu will do our annual face-to-face meeting, with as many of us as can get to Berlin. It should be hot, exhausting, exciting, fun, and hard work, all rolled together in one of the world's great cities.

Today we got the news that Canonical has become a KDE e.V. Patron. This is most welcome news, as the better the cooperation between distributions and KDE, the better software we all have. This comes soon after SuSE's continuing support was affirmed on the growing list of Patrons.

Freedom and generosity is what it's all about!
