GUADEC 2006

Back from Vilanova i la Geltrú, where, once again, I’ve enjoyed myself a lot. Here’s a short summary about the social events. For technical details (gnome-control-center, gnome-session and atomato related), I’ll post individual posts in the following days, when I’m recovered from the terrible heat and lack of sleep hours. Fortunately, here the temperature is much better, just 16ºC right now, so I’ll sleep tonight like a baby.

During the warm-up weekend, I devoted all my time to the GUADEC-ES talks, and more specifically to the tutorials we (Germán, Claudio, José and I) had prepared. The audience was low, but of high quality, having get the attention of a few probably new developers, which were hanging around in the “big” GUADEC the following days.

On Sunday, there was the big event, the GNU FreeFA Cup, which, as expected by all the sports analysts, was won by the official GUADEC football team. Lots of emotions, with even a semifinal being decided in the penalties. The tandem Dave Neary/Alvaro del Castillo in our defensive line proved to be unbeatable in the final.

The Fluendo party on Monday night was great, what a great place they choose for the party, a beach for us alone. And, as you all already know, lots of free alcohol. So, some people seemed to think that
we were supposed to drink it all and not leave a single drop, and that resulted in some people being very drunk, and most being tipsy. Everything was being perfect, good place, good people, happiness, people getting naked to have a bath on the sea. Everything was being perfect, it looked like we were in Paradise, until someone passed his drinking limit and thought it would be funny to insult the waitresses (which, BTW, were very very nice to all of us). The owner of the bar came to us to protest about it, so we had to apologize to him and all the waitresses. I think we cleaned our image, but still, something to think about for those people that don’t know how to drink. We all know that having some drinks with fellow hackers is one of the best things of GUADEC, but there is no need to drink through these limits.

The other party, the Nokia party on Tuesday, was also great, with a new thing to GUADEC that we should keep from now on, the GUADEC band concert. It sounded great, more given that they had just practised for 3 hours. At the same time, lots of people, France and Spain supporters, followed the World Cup game on a big screen specially set up for the occasion. It was bad to see Spain lose, but well, since we had already won the really important competition (GNU FreeFA Cup),
losing in this 2nd class competition wasn’t that hard to assume.

But well, as always, GUADEC (and GNOME)
is about people, and being with these people for a few days, is one of the best experiences I’ve got from being involved in GNOME.

And yeah, more news on atomato soon.

Moltes gràcies Vilanova
