I participated the GNOME.Asia's BOF with Oliver, Emily, Ali and other people. It's very great to have so many people care about GNOME Asia and willing to help. We shared the history of GNOMA Asia and discussed the future plan. I've never been to a GNOME Asia Summit before, but I thought it's a good chance for us to communicate and hope I can go to the next one. We discussed many issues, like whether co-hosting the next GNOME Asia Summit with other organization, the ways to promote GNOME Asia, how we can get it better, and so on. Also, the trip after the BOF was a nice journey, Sweden is beautiful by the way~

Volunteer work at GUADEC

I applied for volunteer before GUADEC, hoping to help other people. But it seems that there were too many volunteers to be scheduled, so I'm not arranged and can help when needed. Since we only had two rooms for speech at the venue, there was not much work to do. I just did some cleaning work at the end of the core conference. Hope to help again, maybe at next GUADEC~

Presentation at GAUDEC

I presented a lightning talk about my GSoC project at GUADEC. Just a few minutes and several slides, but it's a good chance for other people to know my work. More than ten students gave their speech at the intern's lightning talk, and it's really great to know that there are some other students just like me. We have a nice time sharing each other's project and ideas.

Next day we had an intern's lunch. It was a good opportunity for us to have some discussions about our work for GNOME and our contribution experience.

New friends at GUADEC (updated)

I've met many people at GUADEC these days, and I got many new friends.

Yesterday when I and Jonathen come to the hostel where sponsored people live, it's a little bit early, so we just wait at the lobby. Here we met Markus, Ankit, Siska and other people, and we had some nice conversations before check in. After that, we went to lunch together (Although it's about 3:30 in the afternoon) and had a really wonderful day.

At the pre-registration party yesterday night, we had a drink with GUADEC people here and met some new friends like Oliver and Skyman.

Also, my roommates, Jonathan, Patrick and Marcin, are very nice people. We spend a good time together.

I think I'll make more friends here. With beautiful weather and friendly people, I love the place, I love GUADEC!

Summary of work from July 21st to August 3rd

I've finished the coding part of the migration from GConf to GSettings, and now is the debugging time. Since I will attend the GUADEC, there may be not much time for this project, hope I can finish the GSettings part before deadline. Also, I'll have a lightning talk at GUADEC about my GSoC project, hope people will enjoy that.
