Tomorrow I’ll be traveling to Karlsruhe, Germany to attend GUADEC 2016
It will be a great time to catch up with old friends and meeting new GNOME contributors.
On Sunday at 16:30 I’ll be giving a talk about how I used user research, in the form of interviews, to design public transportation routing in GNOME Maps.
I’ve just started dipping my toes into user research, and want to learn a lot more, so if you have experience about doing user research, or if you’re just generally interested in the subject, grab me in the hall at the conference. I would love to chat!
There is a ton of other great talks to see too.
On Monday morning there will be a Cockpit BOF in room 131.
Even though Cockpit is a server UI, it builds upon a lot of technologies that originated in or around GNOME.
It’s also a great opportunity to see if there are more server-oriented-things that currently live in GNOME, but would make more sense to present in Cockpit.
One recent example of this is how support for advanced network setups, such as bonding, bridging and teaming was deprecated in GNOME Settings in favor of having it in Cockpit. All these technologies require at least two network cards, a setup that is much more common on server hardware than it is on your regular laptop or desktop.
It would be interesting to see if there are more things like this out there that can be migrated in a similar manner, to make sure that the right functionality lives in the right place.
