Yeah I am not in the picture, but I was there! You can find me over on the left there, where several of us were cut off 🙁 Akademy was held in the lovely city of Vienna, Austria this year. Hats off to the akademy team for a great job!
This year at akademy I spent much of my time catching up with the Blue Systems team and meeting with the KDE Sysadmin team. I am happy to report Ben Cooksley is real! Due to my flights, I missed the first and last day. It was still a productive akademy. I attended some good sysadmin and KDE Neon BoFs . I also did a bit of volunteering 🙂
Even though I am mostly packaging for Debian directly these days, KDE Neon is still near and dear to my heart. I hope to be able to merge debian packaging into Neon soon so that we can have better collaboration within the team.
I met with Ben in regards to getting back into sysadmin/CI work. I am working on Appimage tooling for KDE Binary factory to begin. I hope to utilize the craft tooling to make everyone’s lives easier. This of course is on my free time, but do keep an eye out!
Despite my shortened akademy, I still am happy with the results. It was great to see everyone! See you again next year!
