Haiku's GCI 2015 winners

News posted on Sat, 2016-02-13 08:13

In February the roughly two months long Google Code-In (GCI) period came to an end. See the results of all participating organizations at the GCI site. As always, it's been a strenuous time for students and mentors alike. Of course, it was a very productive one, too.

Back from FOSDEM 2016

Blog post by mmu_man on Mon, 2016-02-01 23:18

It's been some years since I last attended FOSDEM, and I kinda missed it. I was eager to participate again, yet a bit frightened at the perspective of having to run or miss so many interesting talks happening in parallel as always. Nevertheless it was comforting to know Olivier was here as well, and we attended different sessions.

Haiku monthly activity report - 12/2015

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Sun, 2016-01-10 10:45

Hello everyone, welcome to 2016!

After a break in November because of BeGeistert, the monthly reports resume on
almost normal schedule (yes, I start with this one being two weeks late!).

Anyway, let's see what happened during the last two months in Haiku.

Statistics

This report covers the range hrev49750-hrev50011. We just passed the 50000
revisions range, which mmu_man celebrated with a birthday cake icon in hrev50000.
2016 will also be the year of Haiku 15th birthday, but this will happen a bit later,
in August.

Detailed statistics will be available soon.

Google Code-In 2015 now in progress

News posted on Mon, 2015-12-07 16:15

For the sixth time Google's Code-In program attracts students of the ages 13 to 17 from all over the world to work with open source projects. Haiku is once again proud to take part and is one of 14 mentor organizations that will supply tasks and guidance. The tasks range from coding and documentation to quality assurance and research. Each task is relatively small and should be accomplished in 3 to 6 hours.

As we can (and should) add more tasks as the program moves along, suggestions are still welcome. Please use our web form.

GCI starts on the 7th of December 2015 and ends on the 25th of January 2016.
Please welcome our students in the #haiku IRC channel or the forums and help out by answering their questions if you can!

A short report of BeGeistert 029

Blog post by humdinger on Tue, 2015-11-10 18:00

BeGeistert LogoBeGeistert 029 was once more a quite small gathering, with 14 Haiku users attending, plus one father, girlfriend, wife and baby.
Puck was there the second year in a row, bringing Colin's desktop machine with him, which was left behind when Colin moved to New Zealand. (How is Colin these days?) Another new face to BeGeistert: Markus "TwoFX", one of our finalists in the Google Code-In 2014 and contributer of various patches since. He brought his girlfriend Leslie, who pleasantly doubled the number of attending females.
