Sorry for a bit belated post. I attended GUADEC this summer, in Strasbourg, France. This was my second GUADEC and it was again a great experience.

The keynotes were inspiring and the status updates on GNOME core components were really insightful. I particularly liked the Cheese, Documents/Photos, and GTK+ talks, as I learned a lot of new concepts, along with the ideas behind them. I also found the Python and GNOME talk thought-provoking.

I presented a talk on input-method. It mainly discussed smart input-method features which can be found in other platforms, while exploring ways of improving the current architecture. Afterwards, I had nice chats with Aron and William, working on the same area.

On the BoF days, I was planning I18N BoF, which ended up as a random hacking/chatting session. Sorry about that, but it was fun and there were interesting discussions about translation tools and spell checking.


Thanks GUADEC organizers for the great event. Thanks GNOME Foundation for sponsoring my trip.
