Gluon GSoC update

(Quite some time since I last blogged, have been busy with life's "last exams" and a project work demonstration in which the examiner says I need to relax and enjoy more. Yeah, right cheeky)

Calligra is now Active !!

[update] Steps to build have been updated, please note the new cmake flags

Its been quite some time since I started working on a QtQuick GUI for Calligra targeted for mobile devices.

Being available on a spectrum of devices has been one of the goals Calligra had, from the very beginning. We even had awesome releases of FreOffice - Calligra running on Maemo Fremantle with full blown support for viewing and editing supported documents.

Why conf.kde.in

With all of the foss-y events going on, its been an exciting month, and will be so for the month to come. Most of you would have heard about conf.kde.in this year, and some wondering what its all about. Thats what this post is all about.

Plasma Devel Bangalore Meet at Mantri Square

I met with some of my friends on Sunday for a get together. I realized that all four of us are the only contributors to Plasma from Bangalore, so I thought it will be cool to call it Plasma Devel Bangalore Meet :)

The Gluon story so far

Beginning of The Plasmoid -

It all started with a GL Applet, one with the ability to provide a OpenGL context in a Plasma applet, put to use. Thanks to Arjen who made some improvments to make it more compatible with some configurations.

The plasmoid then wasn't much fancy, but you could play Invaders on it. I had posted on it here.

Akademy Day5, my Day4 - Devices, Specs and Pics

Today was a rather productive day as I sat with Leinir and Arjen, hacking on Gluon (while Sacha was trying to get his Qt Creator to work with his N900) and as a result, the comments model is now editable :)

As mentioned in my previous blog post, the Gluon Team has received a Nokia N97 mini for testing Gluon Player o S60 platform. Though we currently are focusing more on Maemo/MeeGo devices, we'll be very excited to bring the social gaming experience to Symbian.

Gluon Team gets a N97 Mini from NOKIA

Today Knut Yrvin walks up to us and says "Hey you guys need a Symbian device to test out your Gluon Player stuff?", takes out a big bag (the ones you generally use in mountain trekking) after digging deep he takes out that shiny box with the sweet little Nokia N97 Mini "Here you go!".


I must say, he did surprise us, Lets rock Gluon :)

Akademy Day4, my Day3 - Excitements

Akademy is getting better day by day, and I still can't believe it when I see awesome people around me :)

Today I was able to meet Ade and Sebas (who gave me a very tight hug) and talk with them a bit while Pradeepto was busy gifting Darjeeling Tea to lots of people. The chocoloates Thomas Thym had got were just awesome and I had to keep my eyes off them so that I didn't finish all of them :P But anyway, there was always free coffee :)
