This one’s a bit late, for reasons that’ll be clear enough later in this post. I had the happy opportunity to go to GUADEC in Gothenburg this year (after missing the last two, unfortunately). It was a great, well-organised event, and I felt super-charged again, meeting all the people making GNOME better every day.
I presented a status update of what we’ve been up to in the PulseAudio world in the past few years. Amazingly, all the videos are up already, so you can catch up with anything that you might have missed here.
We also had a meeting of PulseAudio developers which and a number of interesting topics of discussion came up (I’ll try to summarise my notes in a separate post).
A bunch of other interesting discussions happened in the hallways, and I’ll write about that if my investigations take me some place interesting.
Now the downside — I ended up missing the BoF part of GUADEC, and all of the GStreamer hackfest in Montpellier after. As it happens, I contracted dengue and I’m still recovering from this. Fortunately it was the lesser (non-haemorrhagic) version without any complications, so now it’s just a matter of resting till I’ve recuperated completely.
Nevertheless, the first part of the trip was great, and I’d like to thank the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring my travel and stay, without which I would have missed out on all the GUADEC fun this year.
