GStreamer Hackfest in Malaga

Tomorrow I will be heading off to attend the GStreamer Application Porting Hackfest in Malaga, Spain. I think we have managed to pull together an absolutely incredible group of people for this event and I have great hopes that by next weekend we will have squashed a ton of bugs in GStreamer 0.11/1.0 and also have initial ports of a long range of important applications and bindings. This is the first time in GStreamer history that we are trying to hold a hackfest focused on application developers, but hopefully it will be the first of many and that they can become a good way for the core GStreamer community and the application development community to interact and collaborate more closely.

Also want to say a special thanks to the community members attending the event on their own and also to the companies sending their employees to the hackfest; Collabora, Fluendo, Flumotion and Igalia and finally a special thanks to the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring some of the attendees.

Hopefully I will be able to post some screenshots of a fully functional GStreamer 1.0 Transmageddon next weekend :)

Hey, if you stay till long enough, this Friday night there’s a KDE 4.8 Release Party in Málaga at La Garrafa restaurant: http://toscalix.blogspot.com/2012/01/kde-48-release-party-in-malaga.html

I’m a GNOME user myself, so I’ll be there undercover ;)

Hi Alberto,
Thanks for reminding me, already speaking with Augstin Bethencourt about it, I am sure a healthy group of us will be attending the release party :)
