Rio de Janeiro, the “Cidade Maravilhosa”, land of the eternal Summer. The sunlight here is always clear and hot, the sea is refreshing, the sand is comfortable. The people is happy, Rio de Janeiro has good music, food, the craziest parties of the world, and beautiful bodies having fun with beach games (do you know futevolei?).
But while Rio de Janeiro is boiling, some Gearheads based in Latin America will be working together in a cold and dark room in the city, attending to our “multi-area” sprint named Latin America Akademy – LaKademy 2016.
In my plans I have a lot of work to do in Cantor, including a strong triage in bugs and several tests with some IPC technologies. I would like to choose one to be the “official” technology to implement backends for Cantor. Cantor needs a IPC technology with good multiplatform support for the main desktop operating systems. I am think about DBus… do you have other suggestions or tips?
Other contributors also want to work in Cantor. Wagner wants to build and test the application in Windows and begin an implementation of a backend for a new programming language. Fernando, my SoK 2015 student, wants to fix the R backend. I will be very happy seeing these developers dirtying their hands in Cantor source code, so I will help them in those tasks.
During LaKademy I intent to present for the attendees some ideas and prototypes of two new software I am working. I expect to get some feedback and I will think about the next steps for them. Maybe I can submit them for new KDE projects… Well, let’s see. 🙂
Wait for more news from the cold and dark room of our LaKademy event in Rio de Janeiro. 🙂
