GUADEC 2014 report
As one of GNOME.Asia 2014 organizers, GNOME Foundation sponsored me to attend GUADEC 2014 in Strasbourg.

Strasbourg is a wonderful city, I very like the amazing Illuminations of the Cathedral.

It is awesome four days where I listening to presentation about new technology, meeting old and new friends.

You can know more about us from flickr, :)

I got a lot from the topics in these days.

1) Reusing Libreoffice in your application, in each page there are lines for thanks to each one for their contribution!
Now libreoffice already be reused by a lot of applications, Markus introduced the LibreofficeKit and a lot of new features.



You can download his slide for more information.

2) What’s new in Gstreamer, talked about what’s done last year and new features.
What captured my attention is that they list the copyright of the pictures in slide at last!!



3) SDAPS: Easy to use paper surveying tool for GNOME
No so much listener interested this topic, but Benjamin still finished the topic seriously, and it’s very cool to develop this tool in University.



4) Fleet Commander: making GNOME 3 shine on large deployments
It’s a popular topic in second day, and this is a new project, with this tool you can deploy gnome’s configuration to other machines easily.



5) GPG, SSH, and identity for beginners
Federico use a very tradition way to show what’s the principle of public-key cryptography.



6) Flow based programming in the Gnome environment
It’s the first time to know about it, and NoFlo is cool tool, you can try the 2048’s demo.



I’ve also took part in below talks, thanks all your guys shared the top-edge technology.

  • Hardware integration, the GNOME way
  • Where are we with this “geo-awareness” dream?
  • Open Source Design – how we do it in ownCloud

Before the conference we had workshop to training some students, and after that we had a one day trip to GreatWall.

GNOME.Asia 2013 report

I’m very honor that I could as an organizer to contribute to this summit.

I arrived Korea in May 23th, met with local team, visited the NIPA and debugged 3D printer together.

On May 24th, Karen show us her passion in GNOME, Allan Day’s 101 training is very good, and it gave me an idea to have same training in Beijing in future. And I got an gift as the winner of this years TShirt Design game.


On May 25th I gave a training for local students, how to use gnome-shell and how to write a simple extension for gnome-shell. After that, we made a lucky draw for the participant with the Lemote laptop. And I also listened the Eric and Tobias session, they are my favorites.
At night the speakers and organizers had a small beer party together.


Last day, I took part in tourist which organized by the local team.


In total, it’s a very impressive event for me in this year.

Thanks for GNOME Foundation to sponsor me to GNOME.Asia 2013 in Korea.
