Clutter Q&A

since there are free slots here at GCDS I was wondering if somebody wanted to have a sit down and ask questions about Clutter; bugs and feature requests for 1.2 are also welcomed. just send me an email at: ebassi at gnome dot org.

A Year of Clutter

so, GUADEC/GCDS is now halfway through, and it’s been a pretty cool conference so far. obviously, lots of talks and loads of people to meet and to talk to.

Rob did a roundup of the talks that the Intel/Moblin contingent has done and will do here.

yesterday, like Josh and Rob1, I had my talk on a technology used by Moblin and that can be (or are already) shared with the GNOME Mobile and Desktop platforms.

I talked about Clutter and the 1.0 release; what does it mean, what will be the future direction and some of the highlights of the Clutter library in its current state. instead of using my 30 minutes to do a big talk, I decided to split them into four, five minutes lightning talks, plus an introduction and a conclusion (still five minutes each). I think it worked out pretty well, given the feedback, and I had much more fun while writing it and while delivering it. I’ll put it online on the website as soon as the network connection I have access to gets more reliable.

other talks worth of mention: obviously, the gnome-shell and the zeitgest ones, and alexl’s client-side-windows talk. great work by everyone involved — you are all my heroes.
