The annual GNOME conference for developers and community members alike is running this week in The Hague, Netherlands.

From the GUADEC web site:

GUADEC (pronounced gwah-dec) is the largest get together of GNOME users, developers, foundation leaders, individuals, governments and businesses in the world.

GUADEC is an acronym for the GNOME Users’ And Developers’ European Conference. Held annually in cities around Europe, presentations are given by software developers, business leaders and users who are involved in Open Source, Free Software and of course, GNOME.

These combine with many practical sessions and discussion groups which set the direction of the GNOME project. It also aims to attract new developers and contributors, as well has serve as a meeting point for corporate interests and allow us to showcase some of the latest technologies.

Live stream is history in the making

Of note, Guadec will be the very first event to be streamed live in the new WebM video format thanks to Flumotion – a company specialising in online video streaming technology and services.

You can watch a live stream of the action right on the main page provided your browser supports WebM. Otherwise, copy and pasting this link into VLC should work too:
