FOSDEM

I’m leaving soon for FOSDEM
and getting all my stuff in order. (Unfortunately due to my lame
setup I won’t be writing any blog entries while I’m away… I really
need to fix this. I’ve been eyeing bluehost, since that is what Elyn
uses.)

At FOSDEM I’ll be giving a demo on using Eclipse to develop
Classpath. Not super deep, but something I’m passionate about. This
switch gave me a a major productivity boost, and I think this is
something that most Classpath developers can benefit from.

In fact this boost is one reason I’m interested in changing g++ to
be better — moving from the Java world back to the C/C++ world is
amazingly painful, and not for any good reason. One way that GCC’s
relative dominance is a bad thing in that there’s no competition to
force it to improve quickly. That is, there is competition on the
back end from things like icc, but nobody is carrying the flag for
developer productivity and front end improvements.

Medi8

I’ve done a little Medi8 hacking lately. I have thumbnails
working better and it can now turn its internal model into Westley
XML
. This means we’re a big step closer to, you know, actually
doing useful things like playing or exporting the resulting
movie.

Be the first to leave a comment. Don’t be shy.
