Finally I’m installed at Brno and yesterday was my first day at Red Hat.
Moving to Brno was easy because I just bring with me a cabin luggage. First day at Red Hat was a little accidental. It was raining and I ordered a taxi, but guess what, it didn’t come so I had to run to the building… But I’m still alive =P Some beers with Alberto, Rui and Debarshy (Fabiano couldn’t come that day) makes it better indeed.
Here at Red Hat is pretty nice, you have all the commodities you could imagine like resting room with PlayStations and pool table etc. or massages room or a little gym. So you are sometimes tempted to skip work =P
Also I have to be careful with my weight, because there are a lot of food and people normally go outside to eat, and here is not very common the healthy well balanced mediterranian food (although I found restaurants already that they do).
Also Red Hat put some food free here… =)
So, on the technical side:
I will work on Nautilus! I think my manager made the best decision on this. I want and need to learn Gtk+ and gobject + C, and a big project like evolution or so is kinda difficult for a starter. On the other hand Nautilus needs some love and there are a lot of places to improve, both in the UI(popovers, new mockups) and the “backend” (search as you type I’m looking to you!)
But I won’t leave gnome-shell, I would like to keep at least improving what I already worked on. That’s App picker and Overview. Also I have some patches waiting to be improved or getting review and merge them. Not just that, part of my work is to work on gnome-shell, so it’s not just a personal preference =)
So I’m very happy to be here and working at Red Hat in its work ambient. I really feel like in home thanks to Alberto and colleagues and the relaxed workflow of Red Hat (as in be free as long as you make a good work in what you are supposed to do).
I’ll be update this regularly with my improvements in Nautilus, and I hope you like it.
