First day at Red Hat in Brno

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.

Cheers!

  1. I’m learning C as well. However not sure where is the best start point for Gobject and Gtk+. Let me know if you have interesting read as you learn. 🙂

    Wish you make Nautilus the best FM ever. 😉

    1. Hi Daniel, to be honest there’s not a easy way to get started with it, but it’s pretty cool when you start to understanding how all it works. I would recommend to take a look at demos and examples of gtk+ at the developer.gnome.org webpage or using the application gtk3-demo.

    1. Thanks you! Hope to see you next Guadec! (looking how you are improving more and more gnome-books, I am sure you will be next Guadec =P )

  2. Sad to hear the first experience with czech reliability came so soon 🙂 Asshole taxi driver. Anyway I hope Brno is kind to you!

  3. Heya 😀 stayed on Brno a semester as erasmus and i loved the town and everything 😉 Red Hat was so close to our dorms 😉 Well as a fanatic of gnome 3 i have just to hail you and cheer you up especially for reffering overview 😉 I ve tried many user interfaces on linux and i hadnt tried gnome 3 cause of some negative stupid reviews until i said to give it a chance mostly because of curiosity! Well! from the first moment i loved it! It dint took me even 5 minutes to be sure that this will be my primary UI from now and on 😉 Overview is the most clever , ergonomic and powerful feature that could have a desktop…I think gnome 3 is the only ui that can get compared with the quality of os x 😉
