Let’s go quickly to the important stuff: I’ve been helping the great team that is organizing GUADEC 2012 in A Coruña. I cannot count myself among this amazing group of people since I’ve scarcely devoted any time to the tasks they needed from me but this is the result out of it, in the shape of a t-shirt 🙂
I cannot get all the credit of it, I was basing the final design on the previous work done by William Carlson and some drafts done by Alba Castro. You can find all the material in this public git repository hosted at Igalia.
Also, I did a small variation for the t-shirts of the staff, which will be red. This is back of the female’s version:
Doing artwork for GNOME events is no new thing for me. I’ve been regularly doing some stuff for them. Some just for Igalia, my company, but also some other for the event itself.
Last thing I designed before 2012 were the t-shirts (again) for the GUADEC-ES 2010 that took place also in Coruña. I got inspired that year by the soccer world cup that would be won by Spain (yeah!!!). Here you can see the 3 versions, starting by the Brazil one:
And a female’s version:
This last model is the one that holds the final sorting of the back logos that was printed for all the t-shirts. Actually, Xulia Barros, from FreeWear did a small modification to the final design leaving some space among the lines for the “7” in the back.
Again, you can find all the material in this public git repository hosted at Igalia.

And finally getting to the end … or maybe better the beginning.
In 2005 Coruña was hosting for the first of several times the GUADEC-ES. For that event I did most of the artwork that was used. Web page, printed banners, badges, talks’ book, but one of the things that I was most proud of was the animated banners that were featuring for some time in Barrapunto, the Spanish version of Slashdot:
And I learn to do it the hard way. You cannot imagine how difficult was by the time to do a GIF animation with The GIMP!
Also, that year was a great one for the t-shirts. Most of the attendants liked them and we had them in several colors: red, green, blue, orange and, as always (or almost 😉 ), black. I think that was once in a lifetime for a hacker’s conference 😀
Even, with Chema‘s help, the master of organizing events, I was experimenting with some sketches done directly in the sand, from which I got inspired to do the rest of the material:
Of course, you can find all the material in this public git repository hosted at Igalia.
BTW, if you have been able to read this boring post until here, you are my hero 😀
Or kind of … because unlike you may guess from the title, I’m actually attending mighty GUADEC 2012
Finally, this year the event comes home but, funnily enough, I moved to Helsinki some months ago so I’m again a visitor. Now in A Coruña 🙂
Honestly, I can’t wait to attend some of the talks and meet again the GNOME folks. Also, my mates Igalians are featuring quite some talks in the program meanwhile Igalia itself has been doing quite an effort to host some of the hackfests and meetings that are happening during these days.
And not only that!. As I was saying, I’m a visitor again so I only have pending to thank Igalia again for sponsoring my trip!
Just download and install them in your N8x0 for making it become a good 24/7 Skype phone. For more information about the goals and features of this project you can check the previous post Extending the life of your N8x0: Automatic Skype Launcher.
Anyway, going to the actual changes.
The most important change for Applications Fullscreener is:
- There was a second bash helper to launch a certain application and send the fullscreen key event some time afterwards. It was not fully featured but now it is.
You can, also, check the complete ChangeLog for Applications Fullscreener.
The most important changes for Automatic Skype Launcher are:
- The Automatic Skype Launcher service was not stopping when uninstalled. Now this is corrected.
- The init service was not starting correctly in some scenarios due to some uninitialized variables. This has been corrected.
- In the previous version, I added an alarm triggered by the alarmd daemon to restart Skype (and the service). This was not working always. Now, killing Skype is forced.

That’s it. Comments and patches are welcomed!
