Last Thursday, the 5th of May, we had our first Linux Desktop Meetup in Brno. It was an exciting start, with informal talks from fellow members of our community. In this first edition, we had talks focused on IDE and development environments.
This event has been brought up initially by our colleagues at Red Hat (props to Jiří Eischmann), but it intents to embrace the whole local community. Brno has an exciting environment of IT companies and universities, which can be great for the flourishing of new ideias, projects, events… you name it. :)
The Linux Desktop meetups will be held in the first Thursdays of the month. Everyone is welcome to join and to propose talks! In the meetup website you can check out the details for the next editions of the event.
September the 1st will be my Day 1 at Red Hat. After being around the GNOME community for 6 years, participating in projects such as Google Summer of Code, and working at Parafernalia on gtk apps for the amazing Endless’ operating system, I’m embarking on my most challenging and exciting position to date.
Red Hat is a great company, leader in providing open source solutions for server, desktop, virtualization and so on. It’s the top corporate contributor to dozens of projects we love, and it has been recently ranked among Forbes’ top 10 best software companies to work for. Cool, isn’t it?
I have moved to the amazing Brno, Czech Republic. I’m super excited! I will be working on the desktop team, so keep locked for my blog reports.
