GNOME Dev X Hackfest Berlin wrap up

It was great to have so many old and new friends from the GNOME community fill the Endocode office for the Dev X hackfest. We at Endocode had a great time hosting and I personally had fun showing off Berlin. The attendees were so well behaved we’d be happy to host more in the future. ...

Welcome to Berlin for the GNOME Dev X Hackfest

The GNOME developer experience hackfest starts tomorrow and we at Endocode are happy to be hosting. This afternoon we readied the office and things are just about finished.

GUADEC: …and thanks for all the fish

It’s my last day at GUADEC taking place in Brno, Czech Republic this year. As I’ve been preoccupied for the past year or so, I’ve not had much time to work on GNOME or any other free-time projects. So, I’ve been running in user-mode with respect to GNOME for a while. Coming to GUADEC was ...

Impressions from GUADEC 2012 1

Well, I’ve been back from the 2012 edition of GUADEC for a few days now. Below are some impressions I took away from a week of talks, drinks, beach and friends.

Cluttermm now under new management

I’ve not really found the time or motivation to work on Cluttermm and friends since this summer. Thus, I’m happy that I’ve found someone to pass on maintanership to. Actually, I’ve found two maintainers to take over. Krzesimir Nowak has worked on improving the C++-bindings in GNOME for some time know. He’s very familiar with ...

Gnome System Monitor: Swatting bugs 4

Earlier this year I took over maintainership of Gnome System Monitor. It had been neglected for a couple years which was obvious by taking a look at the bugs piling up in Bugzilla. When I started there were about 255 bugs which I quickly got down to just under 200. Up until a few weeks ...

syncEvolution needs you! 8

tl;dr: If you’d like to help improve phone synchronization support, please run the script linked to at the bottom and send me the file it produces so that I can compile a list of supported phones. As Murray pointed out, I’ve been working on SyncEvolution for the past couple months. Recently I added support for ...
