LXDE Developer Gathering in Taiwan from September 25-27, 2009

The “Software Liberty Asscocation of Taiwan” (SLAT) is featuring the LXDE community during ICOS 2009 – International Conference on Open Source in Taipei in September 2009.

Taiwan is the place of LXDE’s birth. And most of the LXDE core developers areĀ  based in Taiwan. We are inviting LXDE developers to this event, which is co-organized by LXDE core member Andrew Lee.

PCMan: ” I think it’s a good opportunity to have a LXDE developer gathering or CodeFest.”

So, please join us in Taipei from September 25-27. Participants may get accommodation and food sonsorship. Remember to add your name to the dedicated wiki-page if you are joining us. Please also send a separate email with your information to apply for sonsorship to andrew AT linux.org.tw.

Founding of the Freedesktop Group in Beijing

I was honered to be a guest at the founding meeting of the Freedesktop Group Bejing (which is part of the College Open Source Society) last Saturday, November 8, 2008 at Tsinghua University and to introduce LXDE to some of the brightest IT students from universities in Beijing.

Since my arrival in Beijing I am supported a lot by the folks from the Beijing Linux User Group who put me in touch with many people interested in a faster and more energy efficient computer desktop – the goal of the LXDE project. Thanks especially to Pockey Lam for all the support and good advice!
