We have a winner! Our recent competition turned out to be more than possible for Waldo Bastian, who picked up his prize this morning from Phil Rodrigues. Based upon his recent tutorial and presentation, the entry covers KDE's KIOSK framework and administration tools, and will add an entirely new section on introducing administration to the User Guide.
If you are attending the UserConf over the coming weekend, then make sure you drop by the doKumentary room during your visit. Thorarinn Einarsson (Thor), a student of Documentary Studies at Duke University, is making a documentary about the KDE project. He is filming at aKademy, and is keen to hear from users and contributors.
On Sunday and Monday the first Unix Accessibility Forum took place
at aKademy and was said by participants to be extremely successful.
The most notable thing was that amongst all participants there was a good spirit of cooperation and
consensus that standards for assistive technologies
would ensure success in the accessibility of graphical user interfaces like KDE.
The aKademy Team is excited to announce a set of live audio and
video streams covering the
KDE Community World Summit 2004, code-named "aKademy", taking
place in Ludwigsburg, Germany from August 21st to 29th. Those who
cannot attend in person can now watch or listen to what is going on
over the Internet, thanks to Fluendo,
a GStreamer-based streaming media company. Read on for full details.
For the third interview in our series previewing aKademy we approached Waldo Bastian, whose most recent major project has been the Kiosk framework. Tom Chance and Fabrice Mous talked to him about Kiosk, the new Kiosk Admin Tool, Linux on the corporate desktop and what we can expect from his talk at aKademy.
