Friends of GNOME Update – October 2019

Welcome to the October 2019 Friends of GNOME Update!

A jack-o-lantern: an orange pumpkin with a GNOME foot carved into it and candle light coming through the foot.

GNOME on the Road

  • Molly de Blanc and Sri Ramkrishna were at All Things Open this past month. They both gave talks, ran a booth, and met lots of great people who were excited to learn about GNOME. They ran out of stickers.
  • Neil McGovern and Rosanna Yuen attended GNOME.Asia Summit, both delivering keynotes! While he was in Indonesia, Neil also delivered a keynote at openSUSE.Asia Summit.
  • Board member Carlos Soriano spoke at GitLab Commit about how GNOME uses GitLab.
  • Not quite on the road, but Neil was on FLOSS Weekly. You can watch the episode on their web site.

If you have a GNOME-related speaking engagement coming up, feel free to drop us a line!
