Once again I plan to be at Akademy. I almost silently attended last year edition. OK… I had a talk there but didn’t blog. I even didn’t post my traditional sketchnotes post. I plan to do better this year.

I’ll try to sketchnote again, we’ll see how that works out. Oddly enough, I might do the 2020 post after the 2021 one. 😀

This year I’ll also be holding a training and a couple of talks. Last but not least, I’ll attend the KF6 BoF. I’ll see if I can attend a couple more but that’ll mainly depend how compatible it is with my schedule otherwise.

Also, I’m particularly proud to be joined by a couple of colleagues from enioka Haute Couture. Without further ado here is where you will or might find us:

  • Friday 18 June, starting at 18:00 CEST, I’ll be holding a 4 hours (!) training about the KDE Stack, if you’re interested in getting a better understanding on how KDE has built the stack for its applications and workspaces, but also how all the pieces are tied together, this will be the place to be;

  • Saturday 19 June, at 12:20 CEST, my colleague Méven Car will give an update about the Wayland Goal, he’ll be joined by Vlad Zahorodnii;

  • Following up his talk, at 13:00 CEST, Méven will also participate in the KDE Goals roundtable;

  • Still the same day, at 21:00 CEST, I’ll be on stage again to talk about KDE Frameworks Architecture, I’ll go back to how it’s structured in KF5 and will propose a potential improvement for KF6;

  • On Monday 20 June, a bunch of eniokians will participate in the KDE e.V. general assembly;

  • Somewhen during the week I’ll participate in the KF6 BoF (not scheduled yet at time of writing), obviously I’ll be interested in discussing the ideas from my talk with the rest of the KDE Frameworks contributors;

  • And finally, Friday 25 June, at 19:00 CEST, I’ll be joined by my colleague Christelle Zouein for our talk about community data analytics, we got a bunch of new toys to play with thanks to Christelle’s work and the community move towards GitLab and we’ll show some results for the first time.

Of course it also means I’m on my way to… ah well… no, I’m not on my way. I’ll just hook up my mic and camera like everyone else. See you all during Akademy 2021!
