My GNOME talk at WSLVC.

Monday, March 19th, 2007

My talk at I Workshop de Software Livre de Vitória da Conquista was a success! I was very happy to see many people (students, teachers, community people) interested on Free Software.

Some people asked me: “I didn’t know how easy is to contriubute!!!”. I hope more brazilian contributors get involved on GNOME this year.

Vitória da Conquista can’t wait for the second edition of the Workshop!!!

Let’s go, GNOME!!! Let’s go, Brazil!

Can you survive for 24 hours without your computer?

I can!!! I’ll be with my family doing a lot of interesting things. And you???

I’ll make my first talk about GNOME!

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

Hello, people!

Next Saturday (03/17) I’ll make my first GNOME talk. It will be at “I Workshop de Software Livre de Vitória da Conquista”, an event to promote Free Software in my city. I’ll talk about “How to contribute with GNOME”. I’m very excited and happy to make some marketing for GNOME. I hope we can get more GNOME contributors in my city with this talk.

Sorry if I made mistakes… my english is not very good :-)

Hello, Planet GNOME!

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Hello! My name is Bruno Boaventura, I’m brazilian, I love Paula (my fiancée) and I love GNOME. I’m a student of Computer Science and I joined community in the last year, writing some little patches to Metacity. Thanks for Elijah and Thomas (marnanel), who helped me so much to start; Lucas (lucasr), my brazilian contact at GNOME – he gave me many tips on coding and others things; Guilherme (fatalerror) and Olav (bkor) to set up my CVS (now SVN) account, mail, and blog; and Jeff (jdub) for aggregate my blog to the Planet.

Now, I’m working on GNOME Bugzilla, triaging lots of bugs, writing patches here and there, helping new people to join community, GNOME marketing in my city (Vitória da Conquista) and my University (UESB).

I’m really very motivated to work in GNOME in many areas. I have many time and many love to give to GNOME. If anybody have tasks for me (don’t forget: I’m new in GNOME), feel free to contact me!

Thanks for all!

Recently, Bugsquad receive a mail form Miguel Agüero, a Information Engineer from Venezuela, now living in California. He loves write code and want to contribute with GNOME. I’m helping him with Bugzilla, and I’m very happy: Now, I can help people as I was helped. Welcome, Miguel!!!

Bugsquad will have at front Ubuntu and Fedora releases, which flood bugzilla with new bug reports. Let’s go!!!
