GSOC 2014, here I am!

It's all about taking and giving back

Some years ago, I discovered the principles of free software while becoming a happy GNU/Linux user (Ubuntu at this time). These principles have changed my vision of the world: I wanted to be part of this movement, I wanted to give back to the projects that gave me so much.

This is how I stopped being a laborer and became a computer science student, and I feel that I have enough knowledge to give something back.

The Google Summer of Code

I am very happy to say that I have been accepted to the 2014 edition of the Google Summer of Code!
Applying to this GSOC have been a stressful but already very enriching experience, the coding session haven't started yet but I already learned a lot!
I am sure it will be a great experience and that I will learn a lot on software engineering.

I decided to apply for GNOME because I simply love this desktop environment, from the experience I have using it to its software libraries.

This summer, my tutor will be Christophe Fergeau as I will hack on GNOME Boxes to make it offer to attach more than one monitor when creating a VM.

It certainly will be an interesting summer.

Welcome to my blog.

I am Adrien Plazas, actually studying computer science in Montpellier, France.

Here I'll write about my studies, the GNOME desktop environment and video game preservation.

I hope you'll enjoy it! =)
