The KDE Project today revealed its plans
for the LinuxWorldConference and
Expo, a European B2B summit for the Open Source community.
Last year, in the conference's debut, over 11,000 trade visitors and
100 exhibitors attended. The conference will take place from
October 30 - November 1, 2001, at the
Fairgrounds, Frankfurt, Germany.
We invite everybody to meet KDE developers, KDE enthusiasts and, of course, our
mascot Konqi, at the
KDE booth. Some details about the planned events, demonstrations and
presentations, courtesy of
Kurt Pfeifle and
Torsten "Tackat" Rahn, follow.
KDE at LinuxWorldConference and
General. As usual, KDE will staff a
booth where KDE users can see the latest stable (2.2.1) and development
(3.0.0alpha) KDE releases, ask questions, and socialize with KDE
- an Epsontm
Stylus Photo 895, which with the aforementioned drivers produces
superior photo quality output; and
- a 21-page-per-minute, full-color, full-featured Danka
IC 2100 laser printer, which will be used to generate personalized
output for booth visitors
(including, if you want, a nicely constructed KDE pamphlet, with the
option of including a freshly taken digital photo of the visitor at
the booth or with KDE developers).
User/Developer Presentations. KDE developers will also offer
two presentations, targeted at developers and
users, respectively, through the LWE Conference Program:
Pedersen, Senior Software Engineer at
Datakonsult AB, will offer the presentation "My work on
developing KDE widgets"; and
- Martin Konold, a
Consultant for SuSE LINUX AG,
will offer the presentation "KDE - Past, Present, Future".
The KDE Project would like to thank the KDE
League Inc., Epson and Danka for supporting KDE
at the LinuxWorldConference & Expo 2001.
