GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe since 2000. GUADEC 2013 will be held in Brno, Czech Republic, a city which has played host to several other successful GNOME-related hackfests in the past. By Ana Rey [CC-BY-SA-2.0], via Flickr
Talks Available to View Online
Over the course of the core conference days, there was a total of 42 talks on a range of subjects, including technological developments and plans, design, and community outreach. There were also two sessions of short “lightning talks” as well as the GNOME Foundation Annual General Meeting. The majority of these sessions were recorded, and are now available to view online.
The videos provide details on the many exciting new developments that are currently happening in GNOME, including hi-resolution display support, our new geolocation framework, new applications, fantastic progress made by our outreach initiatives, Wayland support, and WebKit2 integration.
