GUADEC 2017 in Manchester

Yesterday I booked housing and conference tickets for GUADEC 2017 in Manchester, so in July I am flying from Oslo to Manchester, meet other Free Software hackers from the GNOME Project, and fly back to Oslo via Malaga. It will be my only international trip this year.

GUADEC 2015 in Gothenburg

In August 2015 I attended GUADEC at Folkets Hus in Gothenburg, where I met various contributors to the Free Software movement.

This year’s GUADEC was great and I am very glad I went.

I met some of the GTK+/GNOME hackers from the community, most notably Federico Mena and Alexander Larsson whom I also met at the first GUADEC in 2000 in Paris during my time with the gphoto project, gstreamer’s Edward Hervey, Wim Taymans, Sebastian Dröge and Tim-Philipp Müller, as well as Christian Fredrik Schaller, Garrett LaSage and Jakub Steiner.

On the last day I had a veggie lunch with Federico Mena, Jakub Steiner and several others of the GNOME project.
