First day of internship at GNOME Women
maio 24, 2011 § 12 Comentários
I’m very happy to start working at GNOME! Today, though, I had many problems to install GNOME 3.
GNOME 3 and GTK3 will be important to my internship, but I still didn’t get it working in my computer… I’ll keep trying tomorrow – this time, with Debian. If you have any tips about instaling GTK 3 and/or GNOME 3 at a Debian-like system, that would be very very helpful!
Even with these problems, I had some very useful moments today. Joanmarie Diggs, one of my mentors, and me discussed about my first code contribution. We decided not to do a demo per se, but a custom widget. It’s going to be an extension to math strings, like those we generate when using a calculator, so a person that can’t see much can understand what was written and correct it – and then, get the result.
We’ll use GTK3, ATK and MathML. I’m really anxious to start coding, but I can’t do that until I get GTK3 running well. But I’m hopeful! Hope to get it working tomorrow. 🙂
