Members of the GNOME project are gathering in Brno, Czech Republic, for their annual European conference (GUADEC). The event starts on Thursday 1 August. There will be four core days of presentations, including talks on Linux gaming, Wayland, design, GTK+, documentation, LibreOffice, application sandboxing, and much much more. The full schedule can be found on the GUADEC website.

This is the main GNOME event of the year and, as with every year, is set to be educational, inspiring and a lot of fun.

For those who are already in Brno, a welcome event is being held today Ventana Café between 16:00 and 21:00. This is right across the the street from this year’s venue at the Faculty of Information Technology. Drinks and snacks will be provided, and conference badges will be handed out.

If you won’t be at GUADEC this year, don’t worry: you can follow all the action online. There will be regular reports on gnome.org (subscribe here). You can also keep track of the conference on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. Just follow the GNOME account, and look out for the #guadec hashtag.
