Contract weekly report #53

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-11-21 09:12

Hi!

After a great week-end at the Capitole du Libre showing Haiku to other people in the free software community (read François' report for more details - video of my talk should be available "soon"), I'm back to work on the code.

Report from the french far-west

I'm heading back home from Capitole du libre, held this week-end in Toulouse, where I helped Adrien on the Haiku booth. I even just distributed two more flyers, since I've gone car-sharing for a change for both ways. I decided quite late, but Adrien kindly offered his sofa so I couldn't resist.

Contract weekly report #52 - On to beta1!

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-11-14 08:52

Hi,

This week I continued work on moving Beta1 forward, fixing some important and less important bugs. To make things clear about what to expect in the upcoming weeks, I will spend more time on Beta1 tasks, but I'll also continue working on WebKit. However, my work there will focus on fixing bugs, rather than adding new features.

WebKit weekly report #51 - back to normal schedule

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-11-07 07:57
Hello there! I'm now back home after BeGeistert. As you may have noticed if you read the development mailing list, there is a general agreement from the development team for a beta 1 release "real soon now", and after that, it will be time for R1. I will be coordinator for these, which means I will spend a bit less time on WebKit to take care of some other tasks. But I'm not giving up on WebKit, which still needs a lot of changes to reach release-quality. I was a bit less active this week as I had to recover from the lack of sleep at BeGeistert. But it's all fine now and I should soon be back at full speed.

Ohio LinuxFest 2014 Report

I took the day off of work on Friday the 24th and made the three or so hour trip from Pittsburgh to Columbus. Upon arriving at the Columbus Convention Center, I met up with the Speaker Chair of Ohio LinuxFest, Vance Kochenderfer, and set up the table runner at the table that was designated to Haiku. After that, I headed back to the hotel to drop off all of my excess baggage, got some food, and then headed back to the Convention Center.

This year, the expo floor was open on Friday evening, so I decided to take advantage of that to show off Haiku on my Lenovo X120e and System76 Galago UltraPro. I got some people that were certainly interested, and had lots of worthwhile conversations from both existing Haiku users and dabblers, as well as people who were not familiar with Haiku at all. I did a quick interview with Michael Huff of MountainKernel.com (currently being built), and he was great to interact with. I haven't had time to check out this video of his yet, but I figure at the very least there is some video footage of me, even if the interview did not make the cut.

Jessica's Google Summer of Code

This year was my first participation in the Google Summer of Code. And despite having to fail my student very early, I still managed to have some fun working with Akshay on USB3 issues.

With UEFI making no progress during GSoC, it was time to seek out the support of some of my long-time kernel hacker friends. And with a couple days to go before leaving for the GSoC Reunion, one of them came through with phenomenal results. He had gotten the MMU and ELF loading issues mostly sorted out, and we were finally able to load and start the kernel!

BeGeistert 028 coding sprint report

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-10-31 08:29
Hello world! As you probably know, I'm reporting from Düsseldorf this week, where the BeGeistert coding sprint is about to end. I won't cover the events of the weekend as Humdinger has already written a complete report for it, including videos of all the talks. So let's instead dive into the coding sprint event, and see what we hacked on during the week
