GUADEC 2020 + Covid-19 = Online Conference

Originally published at on ・2 min read

Few days ago, someone posted GUADEC (the GNOME Users And Developers European Conference) invitation on Gnome Malaysia telegram group.

To be honest, I did’t alert too much what event happening around but I think GUADEC is worth to steal my attention because I am Gnome lover and this is good chances to join the event because this year, GUADEC 2020 will take place entirely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So you (me and someone else who far from europe) don’t need to go europe to join :P

This event is coming next month start from 22nd July - 28th July 2020. GUADEC, it’s a once-a-year event that brings us together to collaborate, celebrate, and learn; meet our colleagues and friends; and strengthen the most special part of the GNOME project.

Maybe most of participant actualy will be sad because unable see each other in person this year. But this will be open oppurtunity for someone who cannot affort for travel if held as usual but now they can!

We are very pleased to be continuing our support of @guadec this year as the conference moves into the digital space and we look forward to taking part!

Thanks to everyone putting in the effort to get the event ready online! #linux @gnome
