Akademy 2017 | Universidad de Almería | Saturday, 22. July 2017

Another year, another Akademy...and it's in Spain again! One of the largest Free Software communities in the world - the KDE Community - will hold its annual summit in Almería, Spain, from July 22 to July 27, 2017.

Hundreds of KDE contributors, users, developers, artists, translators, upstream and downstream maintainers, business partners and students will gather in the sunny city on the Andalusian coast to celebrate software freedom, innovation, and collaboration. There will be plenty of opportunities for learning, sightseeing, recruiting, and developing friendships.

Akademy 2017 will feature a 2-day conference with presentations on the latest KDE developments, followed by 4 days of workshops, Birds of a Feather (BoF) and coding sessions. The event is jointly organized by the KDE Community, UNIA, and Hacklab Almería.

Akademy is a free, non-commercial event. We hope to see you there!
