Write for GNOME Journal!

With GUADEC having just ended, we’re looking for some GUADEC related stories for GNOME Journal. Here’s a few examples: Was it your first time at GUADEC? Share some thoughts about what you liked, saw or who you met. Did you give a talk at GUADEC? Write it up as an article! Or, we’re happy to do an interview with you about your talk. Here’s a great example with J5 after last year’s GUADEC.

GNOME Odds & Ends

A few different things going on: Tomboy documentation is almost done in Mallard. I’ve really enjoyed using the Mallard syntax – so much less complex than Docbook. Every time I have to look up an element reference, I shake my head and think, “Duh! That makes so much more sense I should have figured that out!“. Nice work Shaun. I triaged some docs bugs in GNOME Bugzilla.

GNOME Journal Issue 17 out!

I’m two days late blogging about the latest release of GNOME Journal (and thanks to Danni for mentioning it! ). This is a very special issue written by women in the open source community. It’s the first time we’ve done a themed issue and all articles are by women in the open source community. Also, with the exception of Danni and Stormy who have written for GNOME Journal before, all are first time writers for GJ!

GNOME Journal Issue 16

One of the highlights for me at GUADEC was the compliments I received on GNOME Journal . After over a year of inactivity, we have successfully revived GNOME Journal, with two releases within 60 days of each, and I have to admit, I enjoyed the recognition it gave me. With that said, we are working on the next issue of GNOME Journal, which will be a special edition devoted to this past GCDS / GUADEC.

I’m going to GUADEC this year! In all my travels, I’ve visited almost all 50 states in the U.S., but I’ve never travelled internationally. Now in the span of 30 days, I’ll be visiting both Canada and Europe – and both are related for GNOME events. And I’d like to say a big thank you to GNOME for helping subsidize my travel to both events. The initial GUADEC schedule was posted this morning, and I’m excited (and nervous) that Stormy’s and my Birds of a Feather session on GNOME marketing was accepted!
