Yes, yes, I know this post is a tad late, but hey, it’s still the right year. ;)
As Srini had announced, Dec 5th was GNOME Day at FOSS.IN this year. We kicked the day off with Shreyas giving a developer’s introduction to GNOME 3.0. This was followed by another well-received talk by Srini on the Mobiln2 UI and Clutter.
By the end of lunch, it turned out our already packed schedule had got some new additions from the other enthusiastic GNOME folks around! The afternoon session was kicked off by Arun ‘vimzard’ Chaganty introducing what newbies need to know to dive into GNOME development. Tobias Mueller followed with a talk about GNOME Bugsquadding. Sayamindu and Dimitris then took the stage for a short L10n talk. Next up was a talk about Anjal by Puthali. Olivier then gave a hackers’ introduction to Empathy/Telepathy, Srinidhi and Bharath did a quick introduction to using the OpenSUSE Build Service.
Wait, I’m not done yet. :) The final session on GNOME Performance was a 4-hit combo with me giving a quick introduction to Sysprof, Lennart introducing mutrace, Krishnan giving a pretty wow introduction to using DTrace to profile GNOME, and Dhaval giving a short introduction to how cgroups could help make GNOME more responsive.
Phew! That was a long and awesome day, with some icing on the cake in the form of stickers and T-shirts. The last were possible thanks to the GNOME Foundation, so a huge thanks to them!
