The program schedule for LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna is now published. If you are intereste, you can find the comlete schedule here. On 2nd May the first day of LibreGraphicsMeeting the main topics are Color Management and reverse engineering of some file formats. On that day, I will give my first talk “Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors” about the internet color profile database – Taxi. It’s mostly the same talk as I gave on FOSDEM in february. This day will be really interesting.
On the second day Mizmo and Emichan will have there first talk – “An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow” I am very sure the talk who follows that talk – “The importance of new tools to enable collective design process” fits exactly to it.
On friday, I am really interested in the talk of Johan Engelen about -”Powerstroke: variable stroke width in Inkscape” hopefully I can visit it, but I fear not because I submitted also 2 workshops to Linuxwochen and after my experience they will scheduled on friday and saturday. And on friday it has to be scheduled in the morning because on 3pm I have together with Mizmo and Allan Day another talk – “Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS”. Nicu Buculei will also have at that day an talk – “Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments”
Saturday if mostly animation programs like SynfigStudio and Tupi topic. But talks like “Remake – build system for animation projects” are also interesting. But I will have no time visiting them, first as I said I will have an workshop on Linuxwochen and at 1pm I will have an workshop – “Open Source, Just Works – The LGM Book Workshop” where I try with visitors of LGM and Linuxwochen to produce a book with the papers of the talks from LibreGraphicsMeeting. The idea behind that workshop is simple, Linuxwochen always asked me for an workshop about Scribus. The problem with this is for me simple, you can sit down with the participants and doing something with Scribus and hopefully they see how it works. I have another opinion on that, I always doing my workshops in the way to give the participants a target, which is useful. So later the participants can be proud of what they have done and see that they can doing things with free tools, its the most what you can reach in a 3-4 hours workshop. If I reach the target the book will be published and available at amazon and all participants will named in it. The profit flows back to LibreGraphicsMeeting and will be used for covering the travel costs for the 2013 edition of LGM.
Some might have the question where on LGM comes Tatica in, because there was a donation campaign for her travelling to LGM Vienna. First of all we reached mostly the goal of 2.500US$ and a few weeks ago we booked the flights to Vienna. We got a cheaper flight as we calculated and 3 weeks ago I booked an appartment which brings the costs for accomodation also down to arround 200â‚¬ instead of the calculated 300â‚¬. So Tatica will participate on LibreGraphicsMeeting and Linuxwochen, where she submitted 2 talks “One Of The World’s Largest FLOSS Events – FLiSoL” and “Venezuela – An Entire Country Migrates To Linux” especially in the 2nd one are the organizers interested, because Vienna had like Munich his own Linux distribution once but the migration failed. So she will have definitly an talk at Linuxwochen. We will know it, when the program of Linuxwochen comes out. So Fedora will have an good and very visible participation on LibreGraphicsMeeting. Fedora of course will also participate on Linuxwochen, which is on same time and building, about that later more.
