Both boards (GNOME and KDE) along with the local team keep working on the organization of the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit:GUADEC + Akademy 2009. After the visit of representatives from both staffs to Gran Canaria, last december, we will celebrate another meeting during FOSDEM. In a few weeks an open mailing list and a community tool (a wiki or something like that) will be configurated so people can help us to make something special out of this event.
The local team has a strong recommendation: buy the tickets as soon as possible. A parallel program for families will be offered so don’t be afraid of bringing them with you (little kids included).
Please, spread this recommendation.
