The goal of the conference section of Akademy is to share our passion on stage and share what we are doing in KDE; and teach each other new skills.

For the sharing of ideas, experiences and state of things, we will have Fast Track sessions in a singe track section of Akademy. Teaching and sharing technical details is done through longer sessions in the multi-track section of Akademy.

There are 3 types of talk to choose from:

10 minute Fast Track: goal of this session is to share what cool stuff you and/or your team is working on in KDE. This will be single-track so this is where you talk about what everybody in the KDE community should know about. Examples include the latest language crazy-auto-complete developments in Kate, why everybody should use this great C++11 feature, how the Design team does open design, how BlackBerry builds on KDE technology, how much code KDE contributed to Qt 5.4...
