Description

Since the last GTK+ hackfest in Toronto, GTK+ 3.22 has been declared stable, and development leading towards GTK+ 4 has been started. Among many other changes and cleanups, GSK has been merged, and widgets are being ported over to use it for rendering. The details of this transition, and related changed such as getting rid of non-toplevel windows, need high-bandwidth discussion, which is what this hackfest is meant for.

Dates and Venue

March 20-22, starting at 10am and finishing at 6pm.

Red Hat Offices 30 Monument Street 4th floor EC3R 8NB London, UK

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/30+Monument+Street/@51.5098799,-0.0852376,3a,75y,220.28h,90t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m4!1svj8YqFtNI7nrez2N5EVG3A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xd7478e3ca1b209af!6m1!1e1

If you’re coming on the Tube, you’re heading to the Monument (the big marble tower). When you pop out the subterranean walkways, it’s a two minute walk.

When you arrive, go up to the 1st floor reception and get a “building pass” from the receptionist. Then go to the 4th floor and go through to the reception area -- if you get stuck in the glass doors ping/ring me and I’ll let you in if the receptionist is somewhere else. As you go through the glass doors, I don’t think you have to sign in with the receptionist and then look forwards and diagonal right. The meeting room is the one labelled Leadenhall and just come in and say hello. If you’re interested in a topic just add your name and I’ll make sure we grab you if the topic comes up.

Unfortunately, due to construction in the office, the meeting room we have will only be available to us on Monday and Tuesday. We are currently exploring if we can use a room in the Canonical or Endless office on Wednesday.
