GNOME Core Apps Hackfest – Sponsors

As I mentioned in my previous blog post we organized a hackfest to discuss all about the core GNOME experience, with emphasis on core apps and taking into account its impact in 3rd party developers too.
But you can imagine, bringing together a not small amount of developer, designers and community in a single place involves travel costs, accommodation, an appropiate place where we can gather and discuss with internet and tables… and apart of that, small details that improves the overall experience like snacks and something to distract ourselves after a long journey, like a simple dinner all of us together.

This is not possible without the GNOME foundation and companies who believe this is important enough to sponsor people going and the organized events.
In this post I want to announce and thanks the (so far) two sponsors we have got already!

The sponsors

Kinvolk folks will provide us the venue and snacks every day, thanks!

And of course thanks the GNOME foundation and Red Hat who will help a big part of travel and accommodation costs.

Hope to see you all there!

GNOME Core Apps Hackfest

It’s official now, we will have a GNOME Core Apps hackfest happening in Berlin, Germany on November 25-27!

The hackfest is aimed to raise the standard of the overall core experience in GNOME, this includes the core apps like Documents, Files, Music, Photos and Videos, etc. In particular, we want to identify missing features and sore points that needs to be addressed and the interaction between apps and the desktop.

Making the core apps push beyond the limits of the framework and making them excellent will not only be helpful for the GNOME desktop experience, but also for 3rd party apps, where we will implement what they are missing and also serve as an example of what an app could be.

In case you are interested, here is the wiki page with more information. All of you are welcome to attend.

Thanks to Kinvolk folks that will host us in their office!
