GNOME Project : FOSS.IN/2007 Day 1

with one comment

The registration queue wasn’t so long like last time. Probably because the main conference is on 6th. Almost all the halls were full (atleast the GNOME hall was)

I was disappointed with the GNOME project day since most of the talks were for beginners with/without any knowledge/experience with GNOME. I was waiting for Andrew Cowie’s talk “The challenges and opportunities of properly writing multi-threaded GTK based GNOME programs “. Again disappointed : Very basic information and a demo of java-gnome bindings !

  • There was a session on GNOME Translation. Some interesting discussion/questions came up.
  • hunting bugs – Ritesh Khadgaray : Probably the worst of the day. The talk was a big joke! He sounded like “the guy who hates GNOME .. but forced (paid) to work on it” . And his false claims on Evolution and other GNOME products revealed his immature brain!
  • Clutter: Fun with opengl interfaces : Shreyas Srinivasan . This one was nice.probably the best in the GNOME session.
