Yesterday, after getting about 5 hours of sleep, I led a four hour hands-on workshop that introduced 15 or so local university students to KDE hacking. As an nice consequence, at least one of the attendees has started looking at KDE code to start contributing. Getting KDE in front of students is so important and a great way to expand our reach. There has also been a good amount of political work that has gone on during this conference.
Today I took the day off with Allan-of-Plone, his wife and two of the most excellent local fellows who drove us up to the volcanic mountain in the center of the island and then to the southern coast where we at a wonderful lunch on a restaurant patio. The weather was beautiful, the landscapes were breathtaking and we even got to see schools of large fish swimming in the ocean.
I have many photos, which I'll upload in an album later.
We are going to a concert tonight and then it's back to the hotel for me as my flight leaves at 07:45. I should arrive at home some 19 hours later. I have a few things nearly ready to commit to plasma, so I'll probably take advantage of some of that "sitting and not doing much else" time to complete those patches.
It will be nice to be back home, but I'm already thinking of the next time I can come back to the Canaries. They are beautiful Islands and my stay here has been both too brief and very enjoyable.
