Oi gente! Graças a Fundação GNOME estou indo mais uma vez para GUADEC – conferência anual dos GNOMErs! Desta vez vai ser na Holanda!
Here are my answers to the meme:
1) Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Jonh Wendell, 30 years old, from Brazil. I work for a sugar factory as software developer. In my daily job I do nothing related to GNOME at all. In GNOME, I contribute by maintaining 2 modules, vino and vinagre, both related to remote access. Also, I do translations and I spread GNOME in my country.
2) How did you get into GNOME?
After some time using GNOME, and having developer skills, I wrote a patch, back in 2006, that fixed a bug in vino, the GNOME VNC server. Atfer that patch get committed, I went ahead writing others and others patches, until I got the maintainer hat for vino. After realizing how easy was to contribute to GNOME, I always give talks about that, inviting people to not be afraid of submitting patches to GNOME 😉
3) Why are you coming to GUADEC?
I’ll give a joint talk with Emily Chen about GNOME communities in Brazil and Asia. What’s the state of GNOME in our countries and what we are doing to increase our community.
I’ll be showing a little use case in Stormy’s GTD in GNOME lightning talks.
Also I’ll be hosting a BoF about the state of Remote Desktop stack in GNOME. It’s a great opportunity for us to share our ideas about the ongoing development of vino/vinagre. Also, we lack people taking care of this area in GNOME, so, if you are interested in contribute to GNOME, come up!
Of course, I’m looking forward to meet the amazing GNOME folks again and play some game…
4) In 1 sentence, describe what your most favorite recent GNOME project has been. (Doesn’t have to be yours!)
The whole GObject introspection work.
5) Will this be your first time visiting the Netherlands?
Yes, I’m looking forward to be there!
Este ano estarei com três atividades “formais” lá: Uma palestra junto com Emily Chen sobre o GNOME no Brasil/Ásia, uma palestra relâmpago no slot da Stormy sobre “Get things done” in GNOME, e finalmente uma sessão BoF sobre acesso remoto no GNOME.
Quanto às informais, bem, aí vem o tradicional jogo de futebol, campeonato de sorvete, festas com direito a jam sessions, e por aí vai… Vai ser muito bom encontrar toda a turma de novo!
