I'm currently at Akademy 2008. The event is located in Belgium near Mechelen (south of Anvers).
This is really a big event about KDE community. It's very well organized (memorable social event in a Belgium brewery, with a lots of beer sponsored by Nokia who are connecting peoples really (:=)))...
It has been a great moment to meet Aaron Seigo, Tom Albers, Laurent Montel, and lots of others guys from the KDE team. It has been really a pleasure to share ideas to make future implemention in digiKam for KDE4. I have seen also the show of Zack Rusin, a very active and incredible coder who implement a new universal attraction layer for graphic card drivers.
I have also performed a talk about digiKam to present new features and components available in KDE4 version. It's been a very instructive moment to recieve feedbacks from digiKam users.
So, I would like to thank all the people who have made this event possible. I will book my place the next year to present future work on digiKam with all others team members.
