About Akademy and KDE

Akademy is the annual world summit of KDE, one of the largest Free Software communities in the world. It is a free, non-commercial event organized by the KDE Community.

KDE is an international team co-operating on development and distribution of Free, Open Source Software for desktop and portable computing. Our community has developed a wide variety of applications for communication, work, education, and entertainment. We have a strong focus on finding innovative solutions to old and new problems, creating an energetic and open atmosphere for experimentation.


The second-largest city in Spain and capital of the Catalonia region will host Akademy this year. The huge, old city is full of places to visit, landmarks to marvel at and is home to a football club you may have heard about.
