at first I want to say "Thank You!" to all the speakers (in
alphabetical order: Gregory Casamento, David Chisnall, Niels Grewe,
Quentin Mathé, Nicola Pero, Sebastian Reitenbach, Nikolaus Schaller)
in our devroom, to Tim Käck for recording the sessions and buying
some computer speakers for Greg's Skype session and also to our
audience who showed through their presence that GNUstep and all the
partner projects like Étoilé matter. I also want to say "Thank you"
to Gerold Rupprecht for sponsoring the drinks at the GNUstep dinner.
And at last but not least a great "Thank You!" to the FOSDEM people
which organised the whole conference. Without you this would not have
The GNUstep devroom has been a success this year again. During the
talks the room was never empty, during some sessions a few people
even had to stand in the aisles. The talks were very interesting to
the GNUstep developers but next time we should not forget about the
beginners. A question of David asking for the knowledge regarding
GNUstep and Objective-C during his main track session on sunday
showed that most of the audience has very little to no experience in
that field. So I guess some tutorial like sessions would come handy
next time. I can imagine sessions like: "Creating cross plattform
applications with GNUstep – a primer", "Using Gorm to create a cross
plattform GUI", "Objective-C tips and tricks", "Objective-C for C++
programmers – the differences, the similarities" or "Useful
frameworks helping you to create your application – an overview" or
the like. Maybe that would be not to interesting for seasoned GNUstep
developers but we're doing the whole event not just for us.
Thats it so far. More during the discussion here on the list.
