Following yesterday's rousing KDE e.V. meeting, aKademy 2005 officially kicked off today with dual presentation tracks filled with content designed for users and system administrators. At the same time the hacking rooms were full of busy developers from morning until evening at which point everyone went to a party sponsored by Novell.
The opening address was delivered by a panel made up of representatives from the University of Málaga, the provincial government of Andalusia, and the president of KDE e.V.
Next up was Pete Goodall,
All the while, KDE developers who were not busy presenting topics to those in attendance were working on a wide variety of projects in the computer labs. Many of the developers broke out into working groups over the course of the day to discuss and design KDE4 components such as IPC, scripting, art and desktop configuration in preparation of the week-long hackfest that starts Wednesday.
