Last week I was on my first Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS-N), I wanted to attended this summit for couple of reasons:
1. Developer, I’m part of Debian Java, working on Eclipse IDE, and as you’re developing Debian, you’re automatically developing Ubuntu, no? :nerd:
2. DebConf11 main organizer, I really wanted to see how it’s all done on “corporate” level, for instance we’re going with hotels instead of student dorms and so on.
3. Migration to Linux infrastructure, make contacts and have some talks on this topic, because after DebConf11 in Bosnia a lot of institution will most probably open doors to open solutions such as Linux.
I went to this summit without any expectations or plans, just said I’ll play it by ear. This years UDS was held in Orlando, Florida before Orlando I was planning to stay in NYC for couple of days, therefor my whole plan was to get to NYC, then Orlando then head back home :-)
I :heart: NYC
I spent couple of days here with my cousins and friends, as always NYC never fails to surprise me, and I’ll always stop by even if it’s only for couple of days ;-) I wanted to meet up with couple of Debian people as well, but unfortunately my schedule was too tight so …

DebConf10 ended 2 weeks ago, I’m back in Bosnia and I needed some time to “recalculate” everything that happened to me in last month :-)
This was my third time in NYC, and NYC as a city never left me empty handed, in every possible sense! And am seriously considering option of moving back one day, whether to get my Masters/phD or just do work we’ll see what future holds for me :cute:
I was in organization team for DebConf10, but if you put me aside, what’s particularly interesting is that there was a total number of 7 Bosnians on DebConf10, two of which were government officials. I must note this wasn’t our complete team, and what’s most important of all is that they all pretty much volunteered as much as they could, of course, besides good will to help Debian, but also to at least somehow prepare themselves for organization of DebConf11.
It’s also worth noting that this was their first DebConf, and I as a leader of the team must say I’m proud on how well they performed. I’m sure by being highly active in volunteering they have learned as much as they could when it comes to “how it’s done” and were able to see good and bad sides of DebConf10 organization team.

If you get to write a DebConf9 cover story for a magazine (for money) + after conference you end up in London with your gf + … We’ll I guess that’s enough of a reason to conclude why I haven’t wrote anything in 3 weeks after conference’s end :)
Besides all that, this DebConf left such a great impact on me, that I’m still going through all my impressions. Even though I didn’t mention anything here or anywhere really, I had big plans ;) Either way I attended this years annual Debian developer conference from 23th to 31rd of July, which was held in Cáceres, Extramadura, Spain.
Getting to Cáceres
My route was following: Zagreb > Stuttgart > Madrid > Cáceres; Even while still in Zagreb, I “bumped” into Bosnian most famous rapper “Edo Maajka”, so trip started just fine :)
