This year at ProFUSION we started to create chess tournaments to play
using chess.com so we have fun not only coding but playing this game.
However it’s even more fun when we put both together: chess and code :-)!
During the second tournament we realized chess.com was missing a nice
feature: to allow participants to predict who would be the champion
based on the current championship status and future results. To show the
current state, Chess.com presents us with a table like this:
Not the missing games with a “_”. What we would like is to predict who …
I’m back from USA after one week attending Linux Plumbers Conference.
This was my first time in LPC, in which I was part of the CoreOS,
talking about “From libabc to libkmod: writing core libraries”.
It was a very good experience and I’m glad to meet so many developers,
both kernel and userspace hackers. Some of them I only knew from IRC,
mailing-lists, etc and it was great time to share our experiences,
discuss the current problems in Linux and even fix bugs :-). We seem
finally to have reached a consensus on how module signing should be done …
For sometime (I think it’s almost 2 years) I was maintaining the ConnMan
package in AUR, the user repository in Archlinux.
After talking to Dave Falconindy and Daniel Wallace, the later accepted
to maintain it in community repository. As a result I’m dropping the
package in AUR. All of you that were using my package should upgrade to
the latest version from the official Archlinux repository.
A great news is coming for Enlightenment users, too: a new ConnMan
module, written from scratch, that works properly with recent versions.
This is reaching e-svn very soon. Stay tunned. Thanks to …
During the last week I was in Recife, Brazil, together with Henrique
Dante, Ulisses Furquim and other fellows attending the BlueZ meeting. We
discussed several topics, among them the upcoming BlueZ 5 API. That
discussion started by Johan and Marcel saying BlueZ would not move to
DBus.Properties and DBus.ObjectManager anymore for the next version.
Main reason being that BlueZ now will have more frequent releases than
it had in past and therefore there wasn’t enough time to convert the
API. However I and Luiz von Dentz already had an almost working
solution: I implemented DBus.Properties and …
Hey, this is my feedback of ELC 2012. If you didn’t read the first part,
about ABS 2012, you can read the previous
ELC is one of my favorite conferences as I can meet several talented
people and have good talks about Linux in embedded devices. This time
was not an exception and I enjoyed very much. The main reason I was
there was because I was going to present kmod, the new tool to manage
kernel modules. But that would be only on the last day of the
conference. Let’s start from the beginning.
