DX Hackfest in Cambridge

I’m thrilled to spend this week attending the 2015 edition of the Developer Experience hackfest! I arrived in Cambridge Sunday morning and I’ll be hacking away with my GNOME friends until Thursday. My main focus this year is on application bundling and sandboxing: I’ve been giving Alex’s xdg-app a spin, and even though there’s still a lot to do in terms of tooling, it looks extremely promising.

I also spent some time working on a proposal for a preview widget in GTK, which is being discussed on the GTK mailing list as I write too.

Stay tuned on Planet GNOME more updates about this week’s hackfest.

I would like to thank the GNOME Foundation for contributing to my travel expenses, and my employer Endless for letting me attend this event.
