Back from Mobile Rules

Posted by berto on March 26, 2008

Mario and me have just arrived from our trip to San Jose (California) for the Mobile Rules! awards ceremony. Unfortunately we had no luck this time and we didn’t get the award.

We had a great time nonetheless and I’d like to congratulate Nokia for having organized the event and all the other participants (namely the winners, specially the people from MyStrands who beat our Vagalume in the Multimedia category). The trip was great, we enjoyed it a lot and we met some cool people.

A thing I’m more sure about now is that Vagalume still needs lots of improvements. I’ll continue working on it very soon (but it’ll take me some days because I’m starting teaching this weekend in our Master of Free Software). So it is time to get back to work!

Oh, no, we didn't get the award!

    Bah, you let the people from MyStrands win to prevent them from getting mad. 😛

    The fact that Vagalume, at the current development stage, even got nominated, let alone became a finalist, is great testament to the quality of programming and design from all parties involved.

    Good luck with your teaching!

    […] As my mate Berto has already commented on his blog, we’re back from California after attending to the Mobile Rules! ‘08 awards ceremony, and I’d like to say that we had a great time there, even though we didn’t win the prize… but being a finalist was already a very nice kind of price, don’t you think?
