I have just got back from GUADEC, held in Gothenburg this year. It was a pleasure to attend the conference for the third time. I enjoyed meeting with a lot of smart people and chatting on various topics in GNOME. There were several inspirational talks, particularly on GTK+ and the design process, which motivated me to try out the new features and methodology in the projects I’m involved in.
I would like to thank the organizers, volunteers, and participants for the great event, and GNOME Foundation for travel assistance.
Other random stuff:
- I had a chance to give a lightning talk on Emacs
- while the connecting flight through UAE was a bit cheaper, it took more time to arrive (20+ hours plus train); that made me exhausted on the first day. I would suggest anyone traveling from Japan to plan the trip more carefully
