Akademy-es 2012 - First day gone

So the first day of the Akademy-es 2012 is already gone.

My day started early in the morning in Barcelona getting train to go to Zaragoza. Got there in less than 2 hours. Nice :-)

After getting to the hotel we headed to the nice Seminario building where today's talks took place.

We started with the welcoming ceremony with the local autorities (City Council local free software companies association (CESLA)), followed by me doing a quick summary of all the talks that would follow in the whole conference.

After that, Paul Brown (of Linux Magazine Spain fame) did a great talk about the whys and how of some typical/silly questions we in the Free Software world get. This was my first time attending a Paul Brown talk and I have to say he is really a gifted speaker.

Then we recharged our energy with coffe and pastries and got prepared to listen Agustín explaining how KDE is great for companies and to Baltasar talk about Plasma Active, unfortunately I could not attend those last two talks since I was helping moving some stuff to the place where tomorrow talks will take place, but I'm sure they were awesome :-)

You can find some photos in Alex Fiestas' twitter,,,,, and of course you can watch the #akademyes hashtag.
