Moving, New Job, Intern in KDE, new Mailing List, Oh My. August 13, 2010Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.
Do not think that because I’m not blogging too much those days, I quit KDE or something, actually each day that passes I’m more and more involved within kde ( and I have Helio Castro asking me to not be the superman that I’m trying to, just to prove =p ).
I just moved again, from Florianopolis to São Paulo, and so I’m not yet fully setup here, so my internet connection *really* suck a lot, but that doesn’t keep me from working. talking about Work, I moved from a really cool company that does Asterisk Boards here in Brazil, Khomp to a really cool company that dows Qt around the world, KDAB. I’m now co-worker of Nuno Pinheiro, Guilliermo Amaral and David Faure, oh my… *-*
A new era is born in KDE now, for the first time ever there is an Intern working for 4 hours per day in kde-related projects with k’approval ( Thanks Cornelius o/ ), his name is Alex Raymond, I’m mentoring him in Plasma for 2 weeks now, getting his used to the basecode and fixing a lot of small bugs on the plasmoids on the way, the plan is to move him to something bigger in the future ( any ideas? )
There’s also a new mailing list that I’m in charge ( with Nightrose ) that’s almost dead since the beginning ( my fault, really, I got a complete lack of focus since I got back from Akademy ) but it will start rocking soon, since I’m doing a lot of things here that I will need to talk with somebody.
About gsoc, my studant keeps rocking, he improved the code, and made the whole app much more significant than it was before. Rocs will now not be a “Graph Theory Application” as I talked in all those months, but a Data Structure Application, and I’m sure it will be one of the KDE – Killer Apps for applied science. stay tooned.
