Due to some things falling into place, I had an opportunity to attend the
first two days of last week’s Ubuntu Developer Summit in
beautiful Barcelona. Somehow, I had never managed to attend a Debian
conference either, so it was good to meet a few of the old Debian hands now
moving Ubuntu along, as well as a few of the Ubuntu folks. I also gave a short
presentation on R in Debian / Ubuntu and the
plans for the upcoming Ubuntu release. More on that another time.

All told, a well-organised conference in a nice setting — two stone throws
from the legendary Camp
Nou
. Unfortunately, I had to leave by Wednesday so I missed what was
undoubtedly quite a scene in Barcelona following

Barca’s dismantling of Man U in this year’s Champions League final
.
