Hacking Sessions:

Once the talks are over, the rest of Tuesday will be available for hacking and discussing - in short, a hallway-track-on-stereoids. This is great fun: we will split up in teams according to interests and discuss those topics in personal. You get to talk to the core KDE developers in person, contribute your thoughts and be a part of the future of KDE!

Camp KDE - Exciting!

In short, Camp KDE 2011 is gearing up to be as exciting, if not more, than the previous Camp KDE events. Learn and play go hand in hand and each of the Camp KDE meetings has left its visitors with many tales to tell. Great ideas and plans have originated at Camp's, awesome work was done and new friends were made. A grassroots event like this certainly counts among the best Free Software has to offer - so if you live in the area, be there!

Wish I could attend but I look forward to reading about the highlights, especially KDE on mobile.
