Ten years ago, GNOME was slowly moving towards its 2.0 version, still lacking a movie player, especially one that would match the desktop's new goals of simplicity and ease-of-use. We'll investigate the history of Totem, the GNOME movie player, the changes it stirred and the changes it hopes to cause in the future.

GNOME has been a successful free software desktop for more than a decade now, delivering quality software while maintaining intact its internal, genuinely open dynamics. However, despite the plans and efforts of many, the Linux Desktop has not been able to reach mainstream usage, and at the same time we are living in times when the traditional desktop itself is becoming irrelevant due to the pr ...

Sugar “is a learning environment designed for children” - it is a graphical user interface, that provides tools for learning like a web-browser, a text editor and tools for expression. Sugar is developed using the GNOME platform, the libraries that are used in the GNOME desktop like GTK+, Metacity or Evince. Recently we had to adopt to major upstream changes, the switch from GTK+ 2 to GTK+ ... More

Users today are accessing the internet through a growing number of devices and computers on a daily basis. As the number of regularly used devices continues to increase, maintaining a consistent state amongst all those devices is an expanding issue. The goal of this proposal is to implement browser synchronization for Epiphany that is data storage agnostic. The first implementation will be sync ... More

These are finally the updates you have been waiting for to easily integrate your whole GNOME 3 desktop with your IM accounts. This talk will outline the radical changes that have been taking place in Te ... More

The Trisquel GNU/Linux distribution, being strongly committed towards software freedom and user inclusion, required in its latest release to make many modifications to the GNOME 3 desktop to make it accessible (as in screen reader compatibility) and to avoid the requirement for 3D acceleration, which in many cases would push users into installing non-free software. Both very controversial issue ... More

The user interface is completely separate from the email library with the plan that the library can be reused in other applications or on other platforms. Today Geary only supports IMAP. Future plans are to support oth ... More

One of the great strengths of Free Software is that we developers own the entire stack. We can adjust and improve any layer of the stack as suitable and needed on any other level. In this talk I'd like to explain how requirements of the UI should drive the design of the lower-level components of the OS, what we have been doing in these areas in the past, and what we can do to improve this work ...

The GNOME l10n/i18n project is often said to be a project to look at when dealing on community based translations for FOSS projects. We should be really proud of that, but we still could do a far better job. This talk will approach several technical aspects that we can improve in our i18n toolbox and workflow. The talk is aimed at both translators, who will learn some tips and tricks to impr ... More

We can't get anywhere with free software if the developers don't do design. They always did. It just sucked because they went with whatever the first iteration was. The focal point changed and "we'll add some UI later" is not design. Interaction with the software is key. Design requires you to have a general idea about the interaction upfront, but not everything. Once a general idea is out the ... More

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?

Our work will be divided in 50% GNOME specific work and planning ... More
