Bossa Conference

I am very excited for the next weeks! The reason why is that the first edition of the Bossa Conference will be held in Recife from the 12th to the 14th of March. Actually the event will take place in Porto de Galinhas, a wonderful beach in the southern coast of Pernambuco. Here is the conference site and the agenda.

Many experts of the Linux Community will be present focusing on Embedded Software in three main categories: Connectivity, Multimedia and Platform.

Besides the invited speakers, the whole INdT from Recife will also take place in this event, gathering and disseminating information about its projects and the maemo community in general.

It will be an excellent opportunity to share knowledge and to build new ideas!

Canola 1.0 Beta 2

So finally the second release of Canola is out! There are several new features in this release, including a version for the N800. Here is a cool video of thoughtfix using Canola in his car:

Now I am working on the next Canola release that will focus on architectural refactoring and creating new plugins for expanding Canola horizons. In this context, I am currently working on a plugin for Mythtv for accessing live tv and recorded content from your N800, based on the gmyth frontend library.

So what are you waiting for, go grab your N770 or N800 and give Canola a try here!
