Hello everybody from Guwahati, Assam, India! I've just seen this in my
mailbox, and am so excited to think of meeting many of you in Spain
for a Kubuntu planning and hacking session(s). Please block out your
calendar July 22nd to 27th, check out flights, and see if a trip to
beautiful Almería, Spain fits in your budget. Remember that you can
apply to the Ubuntu Community Fund for help with airfare and lodgings.

Friday the 21st I'll be busy all day at the KDE e.V. Annual Meeting
(AGM), but would love to meet up with those of you who can attend for
dinner or so.

Also: please consider giving a talk, especially about some aspect of
maintaining and growing the Kubuntu project. For instance, "working
with KDE on packaging issues" or so would be of interest to all distro
packagers, not just us. Those of you working to provide Snaps would
probably be looking on kindly both by the Commmunity Fund and the
Talks Committee as well (just a couple of examples that come to mind).

All the best,

This year's Akademy will be held at the Universidad de Almería (UAL)
in Almería, Spain, from July 22nd to 27th.


The conference is expected to draw hundreds of attendees from the
global KDE Community to discuss and plan the future of the Community
and its technology. Many participants from the broad free and open
source software community, local organizations and software companies
will also attend.

This year Akademy is being organized together with UNIA and HackLab
Almería. Together they have organized various free software events
including the successful PyConEs 2016

We will be adding more details to the website over the coming weeks.


Start thinking if there is something you could give a talk about, the
Call for Papers will be announced soon.
