Tomorrow I’m leaving to GUADEC 2010. I’m goint to assist only on Thursday this time, when I’ll be doing this year GUADEC talk about Modest project.
This time the talk focus will be completely different, as I’ll be explaining the process towards Modest 4, where we’re focusing in intensive refactoring, with the goal of releasing a product quality in GNOME, Moblin and Hildon/Maemo5 platforms.
Also, I’ll talk about some differences between Maemo and GNOME platforms, and some bits I miss in GNOME platform:
- IP hearbeat (data transferences done in bursts to save energy).
- libosso-abook (evolution data server addressbook and telepathy integration).
- libalarm/alarmd (events scheduler integrated with dbus, and with support for waking up device).
- … etc, etc.
I won’t ellaborate too much, but I’m trying to point some weak points in GNOME platform we could improve (just taking free software Maemo components, or improving GNOME platform components).
The talk will be on Thursday, at 14:45 in Seville room.
