I’m back from LinuxCon Brazil, that was held in Sao Paulo on 17 and 18 November. Before the first keynote, ProFUSION was announced as becoming member of Linux Foundation :-)! Our logo is already in their members page.
It was also a great time to talk again to some developers I met in LinuxCon Europe last month and some that were not present there. One talk I really like was given by Eugeni Dodonov about the Intel Linux Graphics stack. It was a good overview of all the graphics stack in Linux, paying attention to Intel’s boards and drivers. Gustavo Barbieri talked about HTML5 and WebKit and other 2 ProFUSION’s employees — Rafael Antognolli and Bruno Dilly — presented “Application Development using Enlightenment Foundation (EFL)”
This time I also gave a presentation entitled “How to become an open source developer”. My focus was on the Brazilian crowd out there, willing to start to contribute to open source projects, looking for a job or just trying to understand why we do open source development. I hope it was useful for them and for you reading this blog, too. So, below are the slides of my presentation:
For those of you who can not see the file embedded above or want the direct link, here it’s in PDF format.
I also talked to some important people regarding a new project of mine. Stay tuned for a new library soon.
