Internet connectivity has being a bit fuzzy in the hostel (as also insulation and electric energy), so the long delayed update.

So far, its is being a really interesting event for both technical content and social aspects (assigning faces to IRC names is always refreshing).

Last Monday I had 2 presentations in a row, resulting to near 1 hour. I realized that I would bore the audience to death, so I tried to mix my slides with both technical content and some humour as also included a 5 minutes pause between the first presentation (Plasma new Animation classes) and the second (KDE-PIM google sync).

The first presentation is split in 2 parts, where the first part gives some context to the subject and the second part includes usage example, demos and some code. There were some really nice responses to the animations running in a Nokia N5800 that I made accessible to the people in the room (you can see a video of the same program running in a N97 in a previous post). I think what is really interesting is to known that some of this animations are already being used in the upcoming KDE SC 4.4. (I was really happy to see that they are running pretty smoothly even on KDE port for MS-Windows).

The second presentation featured some wireshark porn (a.k.a. screenshots of network packages traffic) and was more dense since I got to explain details of google data protocol. Overall, besides struggling with my English and at same time exposing some technical content, I think was able to deliver some not-so-stinky talks.

Below there is a picture snapped by Will Stephenson (I completely forgot about asking someone for snapping a photo of my first presentation).

ps: For the people who asked about how I was controlling the slides with my cellphone, the answer is Amora (A mobile remote assistant), one of my pet projects.

    Great… the Amora should be fficially added to the KDE SC!

    I always think that every presenter should have a wireless controller so they do not need to jump all the time back to computer pressing button. Or sit behind the screen and talking.
