Last Thursday, I did a presentation about GNOME in the Technology Week in ICA, Perú. Presenting the GNOME project and its different projects in which many people can do contributions in development, design, documentation and translation stuff and the Outreach Program for Women; was one of the objectives of my talked. I gave them links to read and more links to read 🙂
Because the title of my presentation was “How to start coding in GNOME”, I shared my experiences with Jhbuild, the template they can configure in Ubuntu 11.10, Fedora 16 and Open Suse 12, how I interacted with some technologies and how am trying to do some code for Gedit3.x using PyGobject. I gave them the bugzilla link and git.gnome.org links to read.
I interacted with the audience, asking questions about what I was explaining and I have the opportunity to gave some GNOME stickers and other gifts like a T-shirt.
After the day of conferences, I took a tour in Ica with another tourist guest of the conference.
We had a great time! This is sandboarding video, we visited Huacachina lake; Cachiche, the land of witches, the three of seven heads (strange thing in nature!). All the attractive places and the mystic environment were so good as the food enjoyed, La Compuerta provides excellent fishes plates and the restaurant “El Encanto de la Huerta” can gave you typical plates from Ica. You can see the pics 🙂
