DX Hackfest

This week I’m attending the Developer Experience hackfest in Brussels. Our goal is to make it easy for developers to write applications for GNOME, identifying the problems or roadblocks and make our platform and documentation nice and attractive.

We had a very productive first day yesterday; after an introduction from Alberto we split into four groups, each to address and analyze different areas: Application distribution and sandboxing, Documentation, Toolkit and Development tools. You can find some information about what the various teams worked on from the main page.

I was in the toolkit group together with Jon and Alex, amongst others, and here are our notes for the first day: https://live.gnome.org/DeveloperExperience/Hackfest2013/Toolkit

I would like to thank Red Hat and the GNOME Foundation for giving me the chance to attend this hackfest! I will also stick around for FOSDEM this weekend…see you there.
