So I am almost like a month late…selection on 20th April and the first update today – fie on me ! And of course, need I mention the end-sems and the ‘God forsaken semester extensions” (to put it in NG Srinivas’s Godly words) ??
Anyways, like the good old Gujju saying goes….જાગ્યા ત્યારથી સવાર ! So here I am, with my first baby-steps with the Maemo SDK . While I am much more comfortable with Open Embedded and Bit-bake – that bit might also take quite some time, since I need to set up a build system from scratch. (don’t ask me why, for the answer leads to an issue I have been scoffed at many many times for, by classmates Arun and Suryakiran !)
Meanwhile, fellow GSoC-ers from the institute have been racing ahead with their projects and I only hope I can join the gang !
PS: The post above skips the most important parts of the story… (talk about incoherency and inefficiency after night-out chains..)
2. On an unrelated note, Maemo is hosting 10 GSoC projects this year of which 2 are by Indians and 5 are Canola based. There seems to be an astronomically huge amount of interest in Canola , after it going open source. I wish I was either a multimedia freak (having lost touch with movies and quite a lot of music for I don’t know how long) or an application developer to be able to make some sense of the hype. Anyways, through the GSoC period I surely will…
