Made Again

I am back, it's been two years and an half away from all personal, online presence on this blog. to be honest. I feel not much sharing in long sentences was meaningful. I have not been working on much development or any collaboration. I was disconected for 2 years and a half. Really what just happened is that life hit me in a big way. Changes are everywhere in my life and a constant that keeps me busy.
I promissed myself to be more constant with things from now on, I will share some thngs I deem noteworthy.

Turpial 2.0 alpha 1 available in devel ppa


It seems like old news, but Turpial 2.0 alpha 1 is available in de turpial-devel ppa for quantal only. It comes with many features and a new approach. The core libreary is a python wrapper that provides support for and twitter, it is called libturpial. It is ideal if you like python and you need a library for playing with microblogging APIs.

The new interface provides more flexibility as it uses webkit wrapped in a gtk frame. It also provides integration with unity. It needs more Message Menu integration. but the future looks pretty bright, as Turpial 3.0 will take what is learned with the WebKit features and start developing native solutions to all the platforms it reaches.

Turpial has gathered forces and now is looking to take over the world, Please do help in making this happen if you have love for the little oriole that can certainly be big.

I personally think Turpial is still lightweight but needs more polish and testing, bugs are welcome. If you install this version, join the mailing list for support.

Keep an eye out for more updates soon.


It's the best time... The Time to Party

It is the best time definetelly. After al lthe hard work with new features, translations, bug fixes, lots of packaging, testing and much much more, we are reaching the end of this cycle and what better way to celebrate than to gather with old friends and possibly new ones too. It is a great chance to network and share experiences. It is a time to celebrate not just another release, but our sense of community and our long standing commitment to bringing the best of free software to the world.

Organize a Release party in your city.  and also make sure you post pictures so that they can be shared with other Ubuntu Local Community Teams via the LoCo Team Portal

Rock till your socks drop :)

DíaDev: Ubuntu Global Jam en Maracaibo

Me complace informar que hemos disfrutado de un día especial el sábado. En Maracaibo, esta es la segunda vez que participamos, pero me atrevo a decir que nada se compara a esta vez. Hemos aprendido muchas maneras de participar y nos mantuvimos ocupados con reportes de errores.


Tuvimos Hangouts con Laura Czjacowski desde Londres, que se tomó el tiempo para compartir cómo Empezó a colaborando con Ubuntu. Osledy Bazo Arllette Chambers se nos unian a compartir con Laura el interés en participar en los proyectos como Ubuntu Women y como interactuar y trabajar en Launchpad.

Daniel Holbach compartido otro Hangout directamente desde Alemania para compartir algunas ideas sobre algunas de las preguntas que teníamos desarrollo distribuido Ubuntu. Daniel hizo una demostración con Turpial como un ejemplo de cómo crear un paquete con bzr y Launchpad, Daniel encontró el paquete interesante, ya que nos encontramos con unos resultados muy inesperados, vamos a trabajar juntos en ellos. Una experiencia educativa. pueden revisar el video del hangout completo aquí debajo

Respondidos un montón de errores en Launchpad y probado la distribución. y también tuvimos la pizza de costumbre y lo pasamos muy bien con los amigos. Ya esperando el Release Party :)

Muchisimas gracias a  Osledy Bazó y la maravillosa gente de Coworking Maracaibo. El lugar es formidable para esta clase de encuentros tecnológicos  y esperamos contar con ellos para futuros eventos. Si estas en Maracaibo, por favor ponle el ojo a Coworking Maracaibo.
