Where are you going?
I plan to go to GUADEC http://guadec.org/ which is in A Coruña, Spain.
What do you need covered?
I'm asking for funding airfare to get to the event. From my place it's USD 2151.
If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful?
Yes. OLPC funds my stay and there is also the travel from Barcelona to
Coruña. But I can't fund all the airfare, which is costly because of
Air Europa seems to have the lowest price, which is the one I ask for:
Outbound: Buenos Aires - Madrid - July 25, Return: Madrid - Buenos
Aires August 01, 2012.
Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can travel? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?
No visa, ARG passport is fine. But I have to justify soon my stay at
the Spain consulate with:
- airfare back home
- invitation from an enterprise to the event
- my professional activity documents
- access card to the event
I hope this is done in less than a month.
What will you accomplish by going on this trip?
Is a big opportunity to me for face to face planning and coordination
on the GTK+3 track. There will be Simon Schampijer and Carlos
Garnacho, and we will coordinate our Sugar tasks like the port of the
Sugar shell and touch support with the GNOME community. Martin Pitt
from pygobject introspection will be there as well.
