One and a half years ago, I’ve started writing a Twitter client using Gtk+. This is a talk about all the obstacles I’ve faced during development, all the misconceptions my naive self had about open-source and how the community and Gnome helped me on the way.
My name is Timm Bäder, I’m currently studying Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart, Germany — currently in my sixth semester. I’ve been interested in and using Gnome for several years not, lurking in IRC for 3, developing an application for 2 (and since I’ve not had a real job yet, that’s it. sorry).
