GUADEC 2019

Morning at Thessaloniki

Sorry for blogging lately, better late than never. :)

Thessaloniki is very peaceful place, every morning I liked to walk along the seaside to the venue. As usual, it was a great and enjoyable GUADEC, thanks to everyone who helped to make it.

In core days I attended a lot of great talks in this year, I learned a lot of latest status of GNOME, and here are my favorite talks, “Managing GNOME Sessions with Systemd“, “State of the Shell“, “Packing up Boxes“, “Modernizing Desktop Linux Development with Containers“, “Is the Linux Desktop Really Dead?“.

I also enjoy watching Lighting talks every year. In this year Britt Yazel’s lighting talks, I knew the GUADEC App was based on Connfa, and it’s also an open source project. This App is very convenient, I could check schedule at any time.

And after the core days, I took part in “Rust BoF” by SebastianDröge , it’s a great BoF to learn the Rust and GStreamer step by step. And of course the Beach BoF, not to be missed, the amazing beach is unforgettable.

GNOME Bingo is a very good ice-break game, it gave me a lot of fun. From it I knew about the current GNOME staffs, GNOME ‘s Old Farts Club, Daiki Ueno could speak 4 languages counting c++, and so on.

I hope that we could also have GNOME.Asia App and GNOME.Asia Bingo in GNOME.Asia Summit. :)

As usual I would like to thanks the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring my trip to Greece and making all this possible, it gave a good chance to meet old and new friends. And also thanks Canonical for conference leave.

GNOME.Asia Summit 2018

COSCUP 2018, GNOME.Asia Summit 2018 and openSUSE.Asia Summit 2018 by Tooth

Last year I’d been COSCUP 2017 at first time, it gave a great impression of COSCUP. It’s open, freedom and very energetic. It’s very nice this year GNOME.Asia Summit joint with COSCUP and openSUSE.Asia.

In the first day, I participated several sessions, Benjamin’s “Supporting Miracast on GNOME”, David’s “Desktop application: life inside a sandbox”, Kat’s “Plan your testing” and ZengZhengJia’s “GNOME translation”.

At afternoon there are a workshop for children to hack a “Flying paper cup”, my daughter very liked this lovely workshop.

GNOME.Asia BoF on Saturday

And at night we had a GNOME.Asia BoF to review the Good vs. Bad, we collected a lot of ideas to make the  GNOME.Asia better in future.

In the second day, I made a topic about “flatpak vs. snap”, introduced some concepts and basic usages. And I also listened Max’s “Community experience”, Kukuh’s “GNOME Recipes”, Shobha’s “Humanitarian FOSS projects” and Wen’s “GNOME.Asia experience”.

As before, the great part of conference is that I enjoy meeting a lot of old friends and making new friends in these two days.

GUADEC 2018

Almeria from Alcazaba.

Backed from the fantastic GUADEC, now it’s summary time.

When I flight to Malaga from Paris, an old guy with Ubuntu bag sit beside me, after a while I knew he’s Michael Hill, which I couldn’t find his photo for local news in BJGUG. It’s the GUADEC magic!!

In core days I attended a lot of great talks in this year, I particularly enjoyed Benjamin Otte’s talk on “GTK4 Lightning talks”, Jonas Ådahl and Carlos Garnacho’s talk on “The infamous GNOME Shell performance”Philip Withnall’s talk on “GLib: What’s new and what’s next?”.

And after the core days, I took part in two workshops, “GitLab Workshop” by Ralf and “Flatpak Workshop” by Alexander Larsson. It’s a good chance to know the inside of flatpak, and learned how to use Gitlab CI in details.

After that I attended the Video BoF, helped the video editing, and at that day I found the flowblade was removed in Debian 9 cause of dependency, and it crashed with source code, so I tried flatpak package, found it just show white blank image when I import images. I couldn’t find the fix (issue 508) at that time. So I forward to openshot, it could work at least, although it was very dis-fluency when review the video.

And of course I met a lot old friends and new friends.  And I also met workmate from Ubuntu Desktop Team, discussed with Sebastien about the gdm login issue, after that I report a mutter issue with Daniel suggestion, and in the second day Jonas Ådahl found me in lunch time and gave me a patch for testing. It’s really amazing community!! Thanks Jonas!

There are too much good memories from this year, such as Flamenco,  Castle show, Tapas, Sangria, beautiful beach and Beach BoF.

As usual I would like to thanks the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring my trip to Spain and making all this possible. And also thanks Canonical for conference leave.

And also thanks for this year organizer Ismael, he provided my invitation letter quickly and helped to push the hotel about the confirmation, so that I could get visa in time.

Hope to see you all at GNOME.Asia 2018 in Taipei!

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.
