Conference season

Page  
1

I have just returned from a trip to Berlin (which is why MariusG now has more points than me, grumble) where we exhibited and presented at LinuxTag [linuxtag.org]. The next stop will be the KDE Akademy [akademy.kde.org] in Tampere, Finland, where I will be part of a joint presentation [akademy.kde.org].

I usually enjoy going to conferences to learn about new things and to meet old friends and make new ones.

How about you? Do you like conferences? Which are your must-not-miss events?

Are you asking about conferences in general or only about Qt-related conferences/events?

I am curious about conferences and events in general. Do you have any specific in mind?

I know. I have asked for visas for attendees to developer sprints. It’s cumbersome…

But there must be interesting conferences in your home countries, no?

There are some interesting conferences here, but it always feels like they are lacking in some places very much.

If you hold a Qt-related conference at Greece, I would be more than happy to attend! ;)

Concerning conferences in general, I prefer conferences about education and new educational technologies. For example, a list of the conferences I have submitted papers can be retrieved from: http://www.sfil.gr/english/Publications.html

I guess Qt Developer Days [blog.qt.nokia.com] would be the Qt-related conference. Just sayin’ … :) Here’s a video [youtube.com] for the curious.

Yes, waiting to be there. Already registered. I hate it that KDE Akademy is finally in my home country and then I may not be able to visit there at all…gnn!

Yes, I generally like conferences, though in terms of Qt-related conferences I have only been to Qt Dev Days once (last year). I will go again this year though, and I am looking forward to it! Last year was very well organized.

Thanks. And I can assure you, that will be the same this year.

Haha don’t you dare complain…Australia is practically isolated from the rest of the world!

I’ve never been to any IT-related conferences, but I’ve been to Physics ones. I find conferences boring unless I go with friends. The good thing though it’s usually paid travel (if related to work/research).

Why is it difficult for eastern Europeans to travel to an event like the Qt Dev Days? They are organized in München, Germany, as well as in the States. Also, Academy so far has always been a European event. At the moment, it is going on Finland. Not too far away from the northern parts of Eastern Europe, I’d say. Still, I guess I am lucky that from my location there are good connections to most of the world. The airport is a major hub, and I am only half an hour traveling from the airport.

I agree with mass above: if you want to talk about being isolated for these kinds of events, try living in Australia or in a country like South Africa.

It can be a terrible hassle to get visa in time. I have written several invitation letters to attendees of developer sprints and – trust me – it’s complicated.
