Every year at the Web School Factory, some time is left free to let us do an internship. This year I had the opportunity to do 6 months at Gandi, a Registrar for domain names, as a Junior Web Developer and now that I'm a the end of it, I would like to write how my experience was.
I wrote how to do a basic Arch Linux installation on the Thinkpad T450s in this article. I will now describe what to install and configure next to be able to really use it. The desktop environment I'm using is GNOME so some instructions will be specific for it.
We are hard working on Qowala! Together with the development of the app, there is also a lot of work on the design-side and I want to tell you how we made our logo. After three weeks of work, Antoine Beauvillain has delivered to us a great logo after taking into consideration all the inputs of the team. I think you will like it, and that's only the beginning of the new visual identity of Qowala.
If you were missing some interactions in the previous beta, you can now get live notifications from Twitter directly in Qowala. Until now, we were one developer and one UX designer working on making Qowala live a great social network dashboard, but now two more people joined the project!
The Open Source Twitter dashboard Qowala live got a new release, improving a lot of things since last time I spoke about it and it is only the beginning!
The new elementaryOS Freya has been released some months ago, but I'm writing this article now to be able to give you a feedback after a long usage. I've been using this distribution since 0.2 Luna and I'm going to give my opinion of the new 0.3 Freya.
The Jolla phone by the Jolla company has improved a lot since its release in November 2013 and has now a little sister, the Jolla tablet. I got the opportunity to try the phone and I would like to share my impressions one year after the first reviews when it was released and to see that things are changing a lot with Jolla's incredible energy.
Since the v0.2, the self-hostable Twitter dashboard KoalasLiveTweet can now do a little more. I got delayed in the development of this version 0.3, but I'm glad to see the application now performing as a minimal Twitter dashboard.
Browsing news article, I got to discover an open source collaboration platform called PEPS. It challenges Google Apps and Dropbox solutions by offering a team's members the ability to communicate and to share files between each other. And it's only the beginning !
