GNOME Usability Hackfest Write Up


GNOME Usability Hackfest - London


The GNOME Usability Hackfest at the Canonical offices in London wrapped up last Friday, February 26th.  As I mentioned in my previous blog post, this was an unusually large hackfest with over 30 attendees on some days.  The hackfest provided the GNOME Usability community a productive opportunity to work together, and a lot of ground was covered.

In the last few days at the event, I spent a fair amount of time cleaning up the GNOME Usability Project Wiki so it is hopefully more clear and straightforward.  Also, I did a lot of coordination with the Dev8D conference organizers to arrange for GNOME speakers at their event, and to make arrangements for Antonio Roberts from the Dev8D community to attend the GNOME Usability Hackfest and participate on Thursday the 25th.

The following blogs, articles, and photos highlights the work done at this hackfest by the GNOME Usability team:

There will likely continue to be blog postings about the GNOME Usability Hackfest as work progresses, so you can expect further blog posts by the above contributors, and also follow along at the GNOME Planet blog aggregator.


 Much thanks to the following organizations for sponsoring this event:

Canonical

Google

The GNOME Foundation

The GNOME Foundation

Also, many of the people who attended this event were sent by various companies and organizations who made the right people available for this event and covered travel costs.  Much thanks to them as well.
