Interview with GUADEC Organizer Serafín Villar
Our next interview comes from Serafín “riptide” Villar, who is a member of the local GUADEC organizing team.
Where do you live and/or work?
Now I’m living in Cambre (a town near A Coruña) and work throughout Galicia.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Any kind of stuff with computers, play flag football, walk with my family, friends and dog.
What is your favorite part of A Coruña (and/or the surrounding area)?
In the city Barrera street is a nice zone to eat and drink something; in the surrounding area the Hercules Tower zone, which has awesome views of the ocean. And some kilometers away the city “A Costa da Morte” is a beautiful place to lose oneself
Why did you want to hold GUADEC in A Coruña?
I’m a computer enthusiast and I like social events, so GUADEC is a good way to enjoy a week.
Have you attended GUADEC in the past? If so, when/where?
Has organizing GUADEC been fun?
Yes, it is a lot of work but worth it.
What was the most challenging aspect of organizing GUADEC?
For me the network design, but the coordination of all the aspects of the event is a huge challenge for Chema.
Any other thoughts on GUADEC this year?
Come and have fun.
Thanks for organizing GUADEC!
