Projects: FolderShot, Sync Your Local Folder with an Online Storage

Nationality: China

Talks at the GNOME.Asia: Title: FolderShot, Sync Your Local Folder with an Online Storage

This proposal belongs to the type 'GNOME library and application development'.

FolderShot is an application that helps synchronize your local folder with an online storage server automatically. It provides an easiest way to share and store your files online. A local daemon is started and keeps running at the backend. It synchronizes between the online storage server and specified local folders with several of your computers.

FolderShot is based on GNOME platform and makes use of services provided by gvfs-daemon to download/upload files from the servers.

I will introduce the features, the architecture of FolderShot and how it works.

Short Bio: Currently working at IBM, Vietnam as a Technical Sales Lead of Software Group. More than 10 year experience in IT field, focus on community development tools.

Projects: Community Development Tools

Nationality: Vietnam

Talks at the GNOME.Asia: Today development tools should be based on open standards such as Eclipse, Apache Tomcat and Geronimo. They provide an attractive, robust, free of charge development environment for creating and deploying web applications. However, an alternative development environment has emerged that embraces the innovation of the open source development model while providing the stability of commercial development tools.

Community development tools from IBM are based on the same open standards as open source tools while providing enhanced functional capabilities and broader platform support for small teams just getting started or working on proof of concepts. The IBM Community tools include a development package for Eclipse, WebSphere Application Server Community Edition, DB2 Express C and a collaboration environment called Rational Team Concert Express C. These tools can provide a robust, stable, and supported development environment.

This briefing will explore the innovation of open solutions available from IBM and illustrate the power and flexibility of an open community development environment. Discussions will include IBM’s open standards strategy, as well as an in-depth discussion of IBM’s Open Community development tools. This discussion will provide details on the features and functions of Eclipse, DB2 Express C, and WAS CE and Rational Team Concert and their integration for a robust development environment to create and deploy Web applications.

Tobias Gruetzmacher

Short Bio: Being a computer and "gadget" enthusiast since the early 1990s, I came to Linux around 1998 with SuSE 5.3, much involvement with the German floppy router project fli4l since 2001, mostly Debian user since 2002, some minor involvement in many smaller projects like wxruby, dosage and screentest. Self-taught software developer (C, C++, Perl, Ruby, Python, Java) and system administrator. I'm fascinated with embedded devices and odd hardware. I own a GameBoy, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance SP, Nintendo DS Lite, an ATARI Portfolio, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, a C64, some old hardcoded telegame (well, it's Pong), an AlphaStation 200 and some thin clients. I currently work at a software company where Windows is the only target platform and free software is just something other people do.

Projects: Building cost-efficient thin-client solutions with Linux

Nationality: German

Talks at the GNOME.Asia: This talk will give an overview over the available soft- and hardware to build thin client networks with Linux. It will give a quick introduction to the basic building blocks to a classic thin client network, from DHCP, PXE and TFTP to netboot the clients over NFS, NBD for network storage and finally the different transport protocols for the actual display content (X11, SSH, NX). The main software part will focus on the LTSP and X2Go projects, which both try to deliver a complete network computing environment and will compare them to the classic XDMCP. The hardware part will present some low cost thin clients like the ALIX 3D3, the ThinCan or the eBox. To wrap it all up, the talk will present some experimental designs of "hybrid" thin clients, which make use of more powerful thin client hardware to move some of the processing work from the central server onto the thin clients. These clients might even be equipped with some persistent storage to minimize network traffic between the thin client and the central server.

It's the first desktop media player that enables DTrace probe as well.

This session will introduce Songbird's powerful capabilities, which include to play multiple audio formats (video is planned to be next release), to manage audio files by their metadata, to turn a web page into a playlist, to subscribe to MP3 blogs as playlists, to create smartplaylist so that the list can be updated automatically, to sync with folder in real time, to scan the user's computer for all audio files and add them to a local library, to edit metadata tags and save back to file. And more importantly, Songbird can connect your device to the cloud. On one hand, Songbird can sync your device (MTP/MSC/iPod) with the music library you have. On the other hand, Songbird support for Internet services like online radio streaming, digital music stores. Some Songbird addons can also mashup your media files with the web/cloud, for example, last fm/Google news, flicker and youtube. At last, all the features will be covered in the demo.

In a word, Songbird provides an open source media solution to desktop users, which also enables the cloud ability.
