I also got some good and positive feedback on the projects I work on, and met many people from Debian, Kubuntu, KDE and GNOME (haven’t seen some of them for almost 3 years) – one of the best things of being at FOSDEM is, that you not only see people “of your own kind” – for example, for me as Debian developer it was great to see Fedora people and discuss things with them, something which rarely happens at Debian conferences. Also, having GNOME and KDE closely together again (litterally, their stands were next to each other…) is something I missed since the last Desktop Summit in 2011.
My talks were also good, except for the beamer-slides-technical-error at the beginning, which took quite some time (I blame KScreen ).
In case you’re interested in the slides, here they are: slides for FOSDEM’14 AppStream/Listaller talks.
The slides can likely be understood without the talk, they are way too detailed (usually I only show images on slides, but that doesn’t help people who can’t see the talk ^^)
I hope I can make it to FOSDEM’15 as well – I’ve been there only once, but it already is my favourite FOSS-conference (and I love Belgian waffles)
