GSoC 2014 report 2

What an eventful month! Lots of code have been read, produced, reviewed and refused, several code designs have been proposed, but as everything was work in progress, I didn't fell it was exciting enough to blog about it at that time.

But here it is! The blog post that explains it all.
Multiple displays per machine I mostly spent the third week trying to have multiple displays for a SPICE machine, which implied reading a lot virt-manager's code and some of spice-gtk's code.

I achieved to get the maximum number of displays available for a machine and, with Christophe Fergeau's help, to get some good results: we were able to have multiple displays each in its own window, but we were not able to open them up from Boxes yet (the session had to have them already opened).

GUADEC 2014, here I am

Strasbourg I just arrived in Strasbourg where the 2014 edition of the GUADEC will take place.

The city is beautiful and have an interesting architecture full of half-timbered buildings and lush vegetation, which contrasts a lot with my home town of Montpellier.
The GUADEC and my participation to the GSoC for Boxes During the last weeks, I worked a lot with Christophe Fergeau, Zeeshan Ali and Lasse Schuirmann, this GUADEC will be a great occasion to meet them in person and to enhance our collaboration on Boxes.
The GUADEC will also be a great occasion to work on Boxes by chatting about (and solving?) pending patches and to chat about Boxes' future during a BoF.

I'll also attend Lasse's proposed BoF on pointerless navigation (i.e. keybaord navigation), completing it with my interest on forsaken input devices such as gamepads. Don't hesitate to come and chat with us!

Have a nice trip and see you in Strasbourg!
