Things I noticed from the above slide:

1. I still had lots of hair :-)
2. The carrying capacity of a small staircase in 2009 was equal to a major part of the QGIS developer community
3. We called hackfests “hackfests” and the world did not end

Also, further back in time, Marco Hugentobler, Jens Oberender and his pal (name since forgotten) and I met up in Karlsruhe for the first unofficial QGIS hackfest in 2004 [1]. That was the first time that any QGIS developers met each other in person I believe.

Another nice name candidate would be Anchorage in honour of our project founder who doesn’t get nearly enough credit other than an early splash screen containing a picture of his dog, Bandit (which would be a cool release name if it didn’t break our naming convention :-P).
