Forwarding an invitation from Marc:
we will likely have our next hackfest in Rennes, France, just before LGM
in May. LGM is May 26-29 and it's likely the hackfest will last for a
few days before it (last hackfests lasted from 3 to 5 days).
All contributors* are welcome and encouraged to attend the hackfest!
Financial support will be available, but please sign up in advance
(either by answering to this email, or by adding yourself on
), to account for possible limited hosting capacity and to allow expense
(and logistics) planning.
I hope to see lots of you there
(* not just code, a hackfest can be a productive time to write a
tutorial, discuss some UX, progress on a translation, or coordinate some
media outreach, for instance!)
This is just a friendly reminder that the Vectors are meeting tomorrow
at 8AM Pacific time. Details here:
We have a lot of ground to cover. As a reminder, we're going to keep the
official meeting to an hour, but feel free to continue the conversation
afterwards and between meetings.
Thanks for your efforts. I look forward to seeing you all there!
this is a reminder that you can still submit a proposal for a talk,
lightning talk, hackathon, Birds-of-a-feather meeting or workshop for
this year's Libre Graphics Meeting.
LGM will take place in Rennes (Brittany, France) from
May 26-29 2020.
The deadline for your submissions is February 17th.
More info about your submissions:
Info about the venues:
The main focus of this year's event is 'Getting Things Done'.
The organizers explain that this "means explaining how you manage to
attract more contributors, how you manage the tasks of development,
fixing bugs, the general directions that you want to take your project,
and how you interact to accomplish this. You might even talk about ideas
you have but have not yet implemented. Part of Getting Things Done means
sharing ideas and methods with each other and with artists."
They are looking for:
* Presentations attracting new contributors to projects
* Information about how your project "gets things done"
* Productive workshops to improve and extend software
* Technical presentations and workshops for developers
* Showcases of excellent work made using Libre Graphics tools
There's also an Inkscape Hackfest planned to take place either during,
before or after LGM, so stay tuned ;-)
