GSoC Summit [Update]

Was a complete weekend for us, Google Summit on Saturday, and on Sunday the Norcal meeting. For the second part Koki did a more than complete summarize about what happened that day so its a better idea to go to read there. All the pictures I and the others did are in the Norcal site.

We already met some people from other projects such as Freenet, ScummVM, Etherboot and Drupal during our previous days in the hotel, and in a dinner organized... downtown in Sunnyvalley maybe? I have no idea where was it, an expensive Italian restaurant. So I will try to give a good overview about the Google the day. 

It started with a shuttle which took us to the Google HQ. There was a bit of confusion concerning where were we supposed to have our breakfast, if at google's or in the hotel, and when was gonna be the last bus.
Once there,  we registered and got a pencil and a notebook to take some notes and the real breakfast started in the "no name caffe". 
There were some proposed talks by the mentors to take place during the day. Those were announced in posters around the caffe, and we were supposed to place a sticker if we were expecting to attend. Afterwards, we all joined in the Tunis room to have the general information about the event, schedule all the talks, and the bad new... no pictures inside the building but outside.

The first and maybe more important talk was in Seville room (city where my family originally comes from). It was basically how to deal with students, selection process, motivation and so on. We took many notes in that talk and learn a lot about how other organizations were dealing it. The first important point I get from all this.

Many talks were overlapping and I would say, I did not do a good choice for the next one... as I barely remember it. Summarizing it was a loop of "tech_talk + tech_talk + eat". One of the funny ones for me was about how to get women involved in opensource. Although the first step I guess is involving them into computers engineering. Another about games was given by one of the ScummVM members: Eugeni Sadulenko (Евгени Садуленко I bet). The last one I took was about bioinformatics, connected to some of my parallel projects. All talks in general were emphasizing the opensource philosophy.

The second important point was the PR done with members of another projects. I was happy that many people knew about us, for the other who did not know at least we did some promoting, and for the ones that already knew us, just pushing a bit like "... and who is keeping your BeOS port?"

After the talks, back to the hotel as Google ordered a huge amount of pizza for the mentors to eat all together at the pool of the hotel. I wondered who ordered the beer people was removing on the following morning...

Basically that was the day. The security as i told did not allow us to take pics but here are all I could take :) I will update the entry as soon as I remember something more

Other pics form other mentors:

And the group picture! find the Haiku team!

Actually, sincerely.... the most impressing thing for me was, the Google toilets... but i am not supposed to talk about it...

This was another group picture taken by an exotic english accent guy(himself proclaimed) Panoramic photo and here a cross shaped one
