KDE at QCS/QCS 2011

KDE at the Qt Contributors Summit

The Qt Contributors Summit is happening in Berlin from 16-18 June.


Please add your name if you are attending QCS, indicating if you are also representing another organisation of company, and what your t-shirt size is.

We will try order KDE "Part of the solution" t-shirts to make the KDE presence obvious, but feel free to bring your own.

Please indicate if you could attend a KDE meet-up/dinner on the Wednesday evening to discuss plans. A booking will be made for all people signed up by Monday.

We understand that many KDE attendees will firstly be representing your employer, but will appreciate your contribution from a KDE perspective whenever possible.
