KDE Edu sprint 2017 in Berlin

I had the privilege to attend the KDE Edu sprint in Berlin that happened from the 6th to the 9th of October.

There i mostly worked in the KTuberling port to Android. If you have children (or maybe if you want to feel like one for a few minutes) and an Android device please try it and give some constructive feedback ;)

Though of course that's not all we did, we also had important discussions about "What is kde edu", about how we should be involved in the "Making KDE software the #1 choice for research and academia" KDE goal and other organization stuff like whether we want a phabricator rule to send email to the kdeedu mailing list for a set of projects, etc.

Thanks go to all the people that donate to KDE e.V. that made sponsoring the trip possible, and to Endocode for hosting us and sponsoring all kind of interesting drinks and pizza on Sunday :)

Sorry for Spain

Today the Spanish police has committed in Catalonia what can only be described as barbarism.

Beware of the videos, they may hurt your feelings.

They have hit people on the street and fought catalan police over it
They have hit people sitting on stairs
They have hit old ladies
They have hit people standing on the street
Did i mention they hit people on the street?
They also hit someone that was already injured and walking away
They have broken (on purpose) all the fingers of a woman that was already on the floor
They have hit some more people
They have hit firefighters

Currently we're officially speaking of more than 800 injured people but i wouldn't be surprised if the count was much higher.

Meanwhile a dude voting wrapped in a spanish+bull flag gets a round of clapping

And I'm saying sorry for Spain, because it's obvious that after today Catalonia will leave Spain, sooner or later but it's going to happen, but the rest of Spain will have to live with these beasts ingrained in their police and politics.

Sorry and good luck.
