Work, work, work and... new house!

In my last message I promised to write some more contents on this site, in order to keep it more updated. As usual I disappointed this promise :) So, what I have been doing in these day? Just a simple answer: I’ve worked a lot. “Work” can be divided in the following categories: office work KDE & Strigi coding Physical work The most important of all is the last one.

Site updates

In these days I decided to improve the site switching from Joomla to Drupal. I liked Joomla very much because it was really easy and immediate to use. But there was a think I didn’t like about it: the way it handled news. I wanted to have something similar to a blog, and this isn’t Joomla mission. So, after using Drupal for strigi’s website, I fall in love with it and I decided to make “the switch”.

Back from FOSDEM

A small resume of my FOSDEM experience… Friday evening Departure from Italy. The plane landed in Charlesroi airport, where we (me and Laura) take a bus for Bruxelles. Once in the city it was so late that there was no public transport, so we had to take a cab in order to reach our hotel. Saturday Small tour in Bruxelles. As we thought Bruxelles is a beautiful city with lot of things to see, in fact there are too many things to see for a 2 day trip!

Strigi Desktop integration

Short abstract: Strigi desktop integration: how to access Strigi features. Strigi, the fastest and smallest desktop search engine, provides fast searches and good metadata extraction capabilities. It will be used by the next KDE, but it can be easily integrated in other programs. Long abstract: Modern humans are using more and more data every day. Keeping data organized is becoming insufficient, so finding and filtering documents have become key tasks in modern operating systems.

Going to FOSDEM 2007 edition

This year I’ll go to FOSDEM 2007 edition where I’ll give a presentation regarding Strigi. FOSDEM stands for “Free Open Source Developers European Meeting”. This is one of the most important happenings for the open-source scene in Europe. It takes place in Bruxelles, where for two days the university if full of talks, and stands of open-source projects. Big projects have a DevRoom, a place reserved for talks related with them.
