There was a GNU/Linux event at Vienna, Austria from Thursday to Saturday. Our Fedora Ambassadors, in particular Zoltan Hoppar (whom I already knew from last year’s Linuxwochen in Vienna), had organized a Fedora booth at the event. I couldn’t resist paying the event a visit, or more than one really:
- For Fedora 14, only installation DVDs and GNOME ("Desktop") live CDs were mass-produced in Europe. I brought some hand-burned KDE live CDs. Those were a success: I brought a total of 29 KDE live CDs (15 x86_64, 14 i686), at least 26 were given out. (We had only 3 of them left when I left on Saturday afternoon.) Still, I hope that we will have mass-produced KDE media next year. (We also didn’t have any last year. I had brought 6 hand-burned ones. This year, I went up to 29, but I can’t manually burn much more than that.)
- I got to chat a bit with Zoltan Hoppar, Laurin Novak (our new ambassador from Baden near Vienna) and Volker Fröhlich, and say hello to Jaroslav Řezník who paid us a visit of Friday (but unfortunately we didn’t get to talk much because he was busy talking to Zoltan and me listening to talks, and then I had to leave for a university lecture).
- I helped out a bit at the booth, talking to a few visitors. In particular, I kept the booth manned on Saturday noon when Zoltan and Laurin held their talk at 12:00 and then went to lunch around 13:15.
- I listened to a series of 3 talks related to Qt development on Friday morning. The talks focused on new Qt technologies I wasn’t yet familiar with: the first one on Qt Quick / QML, the second one on Qt Mobility and the third one on combining PySide with QML. So those talks were very interesting to listen to.
Zoltan might write up a more detailed report.
