April 16, 2006 was not just Easter Sunday, but also Cambodian New Year Day. Long Beach, California, which has one of the largest Cambodian communities outside of the country of Cambodia, celebrated the day with a parade and displays at a nearby park. KDE was there presented by a couple of local KDE users representing KhmerOS. KhmerOS is tasked with translating Free Software such as KDE into the Khmer language.

Did you think that this year we would not have a KDE event in Spain? Nothing further from reality. Badopi (the LUG of Barcelona) are organising the first aKademy-es event so you can have an excuse to meet other Spanish KDE developers, users, translators, artists and share some good days with other KDE people. aKademy-es 2006 is scheduled to be a small event for all KDE users and developers from Spain to attend talks, share experiences, etc.
