Maybe you have heard, that the next LGM – Libre Graphics Meeting, will be held in Vienna from May 2nd to Saturday May 5th That is the place where all the great and amazing FOSS artists and developers of the tools they use come together. For a lot of years, I have followed this event online.There was always amazing projects, ideas on this event. I live on the other side of the world and is really hard for me to attend.
