I enjoyed giving the lightning talk, and the audience seemed into it, too. So I thought I'd share my lightning talk here. These are my slides in PNG format, with notes added:

A few days ago I cut the 0.1.4 release of libxmlb, which is significant because it includes the last three features I needed in gnome-software to achieve the same search results as appstream-glib.

Last month French publisher D-Booker released the 2nd edition of Timothée Giet’s book “Dessin et peinture numérique avec Krita”.

The first edition was written for Krita 2.9.11, almost three years ago. A lot of things have changed since then! So Timothée has completely...

Could you tell us something about yourself?

I’m Brigette, but I go mainly go by my online handle of HoldXtoRevive. I’m from the UK and mostly known as a fanartist.

Do you paint professionally, as a hobby artist, or both?

I have had a few commissions but outside that I would call myself a hobbyist. I would love to work professionally at some point.

What genre(s)...

WebKit currently has four network backends:

  • CoreFoundation (used by macOS and iOS, and thus Safari)
  • CFNet (used by iTunes on Windows… I think only iTunes?)
  • cURL (used by most Windows applications, also PlayStation)
  • libsoup (used by WebKitGTK+ and WPE WebKit)

One guess which of those we’re going to be talking about in this post. Yeah, of...

tl/dr: Is it unity builds? Yes.
I would like to know more!At work I have to compile a large code base from scratch fairly often. One of the components it has is a 3D graphics library. It takes around 2 minutes 15 seconds to compile using an 8 core i7. After a while I got bored with this and converted the system to use a unity build.

  • All Saints, played bass; pizza lunch, dropped H. and M. off to the Rememberance parade & service with Scouts. Watched Man in the High Castle, and a large nativity silhouette with J. Worked on mending J's old Galaxy S3 for M. in the evening - struggled to find compatible PIT files that would not be rejected; grim. Rather unclear why Android's Download mode doesn't...

You have probably read a lot about Akademy 2018 recently, and how great it was.
For me it was a great experience too and this year I met a lot of KDE people, both old and new. This is always nice.
I arrived on Thursday so I had one day to set everything up and had a little bit of time to get to know the city.
On Friday evening I enjoyed the "Welcoming evening", but I was...
