I have begun my journey to the Desktop Summit
, making the flight over from the US to Manchester yesterday. A short stay in Sheffield, and catch up with family before heading out to get my flight to Berlin tomorrow. I will be talking about the work I have done both at and before joining Kitware
with the title “Open Source Visualization of Scientific Data”
. I plan to talk about a range of work from my Google Summer of Code project on Kalzium
back in 2007, through to some of the exciting work at Kitware in VTK
looking at the challenges of large data, remote visualization and how to integrate the web and smartphones/tablets into the scientific data visualization workflow.
Bill Hoffman is also planning to attend, and we will be running a workshop introducing CMake on Thursday. This is my first Desktop Summit, although Bill and I have both attended previous aKademy and Camp KDE meetings. I should be in on time to attend the pre-registration event, and will not be leaving until Saturday. Looking forward to a great summit, catching up with some old friends and making some new ones. Now, I think I should try to get some sleep before my flight tomorrow!
