Open Academy and KDE

December 26, 2013

It has been a while that I don’t write here but I thought this subject was worth it 🙂 Open source is a huge part of Facebook engineering. Whether we’re building new data infrastructure tools like Corona and Presto to manage our warehouses on Hadoop, releasing a new mobile build tool like Buck, or improving PHP runtime with HHVM, open source projects […]

Big changes!

May 8, 2012

After 5 wonderful years working with passionate and skilled people I am now moving to São Paulo to work at Facebook’s office for Latin America. My official role will be Partner Engineer. This doesn’t mean that I will go away from KDE, neither from Qt. It just means that I will contribute more on my […]

Back to life!

November 21, 2011

I am back from my honeymoon and I’m starting to organize my life again! Meanwhile, we finally released a game that I’m really proud that is called “Incredible Circus”. It’s the kind of game that is really addictive :). In three weeks we achieved 200k downloads on Nokia Store and today is available for the […]

It has been a while

kdeplasma-addons is on git too

February 1, 2011

Today we finally converted kdeplasma-addons to git 🙂 The rules itself were written some time ago and we waited for the conversion of kdelibs and kdebase. Thanks to eean I found a last minute problem on the rules and today we fixed that! You can find kdeplasma-addons on https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/kdeplasma-addons and you can easily clone the […]

Small update for ‘share’ dataengine

January 8, 2011

Following the awesome work done by our sysadmins, I implemented a backend for the share data engine that supports the use of KDE’s official pastebin service: http://paste.kde.org . This way people using trunk will already have this support upstream and people using earlier versions (which includes 4.6 !) can also use the script provided by […]

The bad side of “The Cloud”

December 15, 2010

Since some time ago I started to worry that some “vital” information for me was on the “The Cloud” and that most of the service providers didn’t provide a way to retrieve my stuff or a support line. I started to worry also about privacy for the first time in my life: what if companies […]

KDE Mobile Sprint and MeeGo

November 21, 2010

Yep, I didn’t blog about MeeGo Conference yet. But come on, a lot happened during the last few days 😛 I barely had time to sleep really well (those that know me can tell histories about my sleep-walking and sleep-talking hehe). However, just to keep everybody updated before I do a full post or read […]

Sharing articles using Akregator

October 22, 2010

A month ago I integrated into Akregator the “share” feature that uses Plasma’s microblog service to help you to share news with your friends using the microblog services (identi.ca and twitter). The good thing about using identi.ca is that all your data belong to you 😉 and you can easily replicate your posts to twitter […]

I am part of the game!

August 29, 2010

There are several ways of being part of the KDE game: you can develop, translate, be an artist, help users, take care of our infrastructure, organize developer sprints. A lot of ways right? But some people just lack the time to join the game in any of the areas that I just listed but still […]
