First OpenPGP.conf 2016 in Cologne, Germany

Recently, I’ve attended the first ever OpenPGP conference in Cologne, Germany. It’s amazing how 25 years of OpenPGP have passed without any conference for bringing various OpenPGP people together. I attended rather spontaneously, but I’m happy to have gone. It’s been very insightful and I’m really glad to have met many interesting people. Werner himself … Continue reading First OpenPGP.conf 2016 in Cologne, Germany

Talking at mrmcds 2016 in Darmstadt, Germany

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the mrmcds in Darmstadt, Germany. Just like I did the last years. Like the years before, the conference was nicely themed.

Talking at OpenSuSE Conference 2016 in Nuremberg

I was invited to this year’s OpenSuSE Conference in Nuremberg, Germany. I had been to that event two years ago in Dubrovnik which I enjoyed so much that I was eager to go again.

Talking at FOSSASIA 2016 in Singapore

This year I was able to attend this year’s FOSSASIA in Singapore. It’s quite a decently sized event with more than 150 speakers and more than 1000 people attending.

DFN Workshop 2015

As in the last few years, the DFN Workshop happened in Hamburg, Germany. The conference was keynoted by Steven Le Blond who talked about targeted attacks, e.g. against dissidents. He mentioned that he already presented the content at the USENIX security conference which some people think is very excellent. He first showed how he used … Continue reading DFN Workshop 2015

FOSDEM 2015

It’s winter again and it was clear that FOSDEM was coming. However, preparation fell through the cracks, at least for me, mainly because my personal life is fast-paced at the moment. We had a table again, and our EventsBox, which is filled with goodness to demo GNOME, made its way from Gothenburg, where I actually … Continue reading FOSDEM 2015

GNOME at FSCONS14 in Gothenburg, Sweden

I was glad to be invited to FSONCS 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Remember that this is also the place for next year’s GUADEC! This year’s FSCONS was attended by around 150 people or so. I guess it was a bit less. That might not sound like a lot, but it’s a very cool event with … Continue reading GNOME at FSCONS14 in Gothenburg, Sweden
