Camp KDE 2011 Announced

We are excited to announce Camp KDE 2011 which will be held April 4 and 5, 2011 in San Francisco, California at the Hotel Kabuki. Camp KDE is co-located this year with the Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit which takes place April 6 and 7.

Held annually in North America, Camp KDE provides a regional opportunity for KDE contributors and enthusiasts to gather and share their KDE experiences. Co-location with the Collaboration Summit will allow Camp KDE attendees a unique opportunity to learn from and share their experiences with members of many other successful open source software projects.

"Having Camp KDE co-located with The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit helps to bring even more of the Linux community's key stakeholders together in one place," said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs. "The KDE community represents contributors from around the globe and we're excited for the cross-event collaboration opportunities that will help advance Linux in the year ahead."

Registration and more information on the event is available on the conference website. Proposals for talks are now open and will be accepted until March 2, 2011.

Comments

Camp KDE is held annually in North America, not just the United States. The announcement at camp.kde.org makes this same mistake.
