GUADEC 2013, GNOME’s annual European conference, just finished in Brno (Czech Republic). The event was a huge success. Hundreds of contributors participated, including volunteers, interns, and the employees of many companies. The schedule had a high quality of talks on a wide range of topics. The GNOME project also used the conference to meet with our partners and make exciting plans for the future, including significant developments in GTK+, Wayland, geolocation support and application sandboxing/bundling.
None of this would have been possible without our generous sponsors. Google and Red Hat provided gold level sponsorship. Canonical, Collabora, and Igalia were our silver level sponsors, and Mozilla was a bronze sponsor. Those who registered as professionals at GUADEC also provided critical support.
Thank you to all for your support, and for helping to make GUADEC such an exciting, rewarding and productive event.
