GUADEC will be arranged this year together with aKademy as the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit on July 3rd - 11th. The event will be an excellent opportunity to learn about some new technologies for the Linux desktop:
- GeoClue and libchamplain presentation (Sunday morning):
GeoClue is the position information service, and libchamplain is a very nice Clutter map widget. Together they provide a powerful framework for making the Linux desktop location-aware. We will present the projects together with Pierre-Luc Beaudoin, the guy behind libchamplain and Empathy's location-sharing features
- Midgard2: Content repository for desktop and the web (Tuesday afternoon):
Midgard2 is a generic content repository that enables you to develop mobile, desktop and web applications that synchronize their data together using D-Bus and XMPP. It can be used anywhere from Maemo handhelds to proper data centers.
