GNOME.Asia Summit 2016

This year summit held at Manav Rachna International University (MRIU), which is located in the Faridabad district Delhi, it’s a quiet, beautiful and very very hot place. It gave me a lot of wonderful memories.

I arrived at noon of 21th April, and so I participated the workshop “GStreamer in your GNOME: Hands-on multimedia hacking”, here I learned how to play audio and video from command line and code step by step.

For the 1st day of conference, the local team is very very enthusiastic, if you forgot to register, they will find you with the register book and ask you to fill the name, email and phone number.

GUADEC 2015

It’s a little late for the report, there are the 70 anniversary of the victory of the anti fascist war last week. I got very very much from this year fantastic GUADEC, where I listened topics, met old and new friends, participated the BoF.

First a lot of topics made me know more about GNOME, such as “Playing with apps in the sandbox” and “Crafting Developer Experience”. And I enjoyed the victory of GNOME Logo war from “How the Power of Community Prevails — It’s Not Only About the Code”. I described the more details in Chinese at below links.

Second I met a lot old friends, and knew new friends, they are very very kind, just  like a big family.

In the BoF, I took part in the ‘GNOME.Asia‘ to learn the history, discuss how to let the GNOME.Asia more better in future.

Last week, I wrote a blog in Chinese to review the GUADEC 2015 and uploaded some videos in Chinese youtube.
