Last Friday, at BarCampZagreb, I heard once again the usual phrase:
2009 (substitute with year + 1 if it’s already that year), will be a year of Linux Desktop
There were even some years (mostly 2001-2003) when I claimed that now it’s really there. Then I got my first OS X powered iBook and stopped caring.
Imagine my surprise when they’ve told me that after years of development the mystical KDE4 is now ready for end user market and that everyone and their dog should try running it.
This of course requires a proper party!
Since we’re geeks, we can’t just drink beer and have a good time but we also have to learn something in the process, demo the whole thing and have much more good time before we start the drinking part.
With these words, I’d like to announce KDE4.2 release party in Kiberpipa, Ljubljana, Slovenia on 27th of January (that’s Tuesday, tommorow or today). The schedule is as following:
18:00 – Predstavitev KDE 4(.2) (Andrej Vernekar)
18:30 – Plasma (Jure Repinc)
19:00 – Amarok 2 (Andraž Sraka)
19:15 – Adijo, DCOP; zdravo, D-Bus! (Gašper Fele-Žorž)
19:30 – Delavnice
Izdelava teme za Plazmo (Jure Repinc)
Izdelava gradnika za Plazmo (Ambrož Bizjak)
Kako pomagati s prevajanjem (Andrej Vernekar)
20:30 – Pogostitev/druženje/pija?a/zabava
You can read full announce at Pipini odprti termini page.
Since many of your are not in Ljubljana but in other cities, here’s a list of many KDE 4.2 release parties. Go mingle with your local geeks and lets make 2009 a bit more of a Linux on Desktop year.
