I've already blogged about the Plasma team being at Akademy, and while I'm excited about what we will be able to accomplish there for Plasma it isn't the only thing I'll be dipping my fingers into at this year's Akademy. Yes ..
On Sunday, the second day of the conference, I will be presenting the keynote for that day. The title still hasn't been put on the official schedule, so here's a sneak preview: "Reaching For Greatness". I'll have just 45 minutes to provide a quick analysis of where KDE is and set out a template for our near- and mid-term futures. The word "template" is important since that is what it will be: an outline for the various groups in KDE to take and apply in a way that matches their particular needs. Forty-five minutes is not exactly a very long time in which to do this; as a result, it feels a bit like writing a haiku. :)
I'll also be tagging up with the promo/communication team, KDE e.V. people and mobile projects that are emerging around KDE and Qt. That feels like quite enough to try to accomplish in the ten days I'll be in Finland. :) Akademy has a way of injecting unforeseen opportunities into the timeline, though, so despite my best planning I'm still eagerly anticipating the surprises.
Oh, and there may be hats.
