I’ve finally restored my personal web server after the WordPress installation(s) I had there got hacked last year, and I decided to migrate this blog there.

if you do not read this blog via Planet GNOME, but you use the syndacation feed, you should subscribe to this feed, instead. if you’re only interested in GNOME-related posts (i.e. the posts that end up in Planet GNOME) the use this feed instead.

  1. ,           the third, and last day of the DX hackfest opened with a quick recap as to what people have been working on in the past couple of days. we had a nice lunch nearby, and then we went back to the Endocode office to tackle the biggest topic: a road …
  2. , the second day of the hackfest had a pretty big discussion on the roadmap for GTK+. thanks to Matthias Clasen, we had a list of things to discuss prior to the start of the hackfest, even if Matthias himself would not be present: filling the gaps between the GNOME HIG …
  3. , we had a fairly productive first day here, at the Endocode offices in Berlin. everyone is pretty excited about working on the overall experience for developers on the GNOME platform. at first, we decided what to tackle in the next three days, and drafted a rough schedule. the hackfest then …

  6. , this is a PSA: if you’re thinking about submitting a talk for GUADEC 2013 in Brno, you have a week to do so. :-)
  7. , conferences sadly, this year I missed FOSDEM — and I saw from the blog posts on PGO that the DX hackfest was also amazing — but I had a good excuse, as I had to give a talk about Unicorns and Rainbows at linux.conf.au, in Canberra. I had the chance …
  8. , news of my death abandonment of the GNOME community have been greatly exagerated. seriously: I’m still here at GUADEC (typing this from the common area); I’m still on the Board of the GNOME Foundation; and I’m still working on GNOME tech, like Clutter, GLib, and GTK+. I …
  9. , I have an idea of where the app developers are. they are in an ecosystem that put up with a language that calling niche 10 years ago was flattering. or they are in an ecosystem that is so fragmented that you can forget complaining about three or four major distros …
