GNOME Project : FOSS.IN/2007 Day 1
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.
