from 26 July 2012 to 1 August 2012 (Europe/Madrid)
Facultade de Informática, A Coruña
Web to the core
Presented by Mr. Xan LOPEZ on 26 Jul 2012 from 16:15 to 16:55
In this talk we'll analyze the efforts to transform the venerable Epiphany web browser into the new Web core GNOME application. Why would anybody want to do that? What are the trade offs? How are you doing so far? What are your plans for the future? If you could go back in time would you try to kill Hitler? We'll pay special attention to the difficult intersection between doing a modern application for everyone and working in the Free Software community, the problems of building your platform as you go and how the process of defining and writing core applications is crystallizing. Rated R for: strong opinions, funny videos.
