“Jesien Linuksowa 2014″ – my conference speech

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to give a speech at a “Jesien Linuksowa 2014” conference. “Jesien Linuksowa” (Linux Autumn) is a “[…] social-scientific meeting for enthusiasts of the Free Software and the GNU/Linux that is organized by the management board of the Polish Linux Users Group”. It was also the first opportunity to present new (pre-release) version of my application – “Raspberry Control 2.0″ – more info about this app you can find HERE.



Tizen SDK on non-Ubuntu Linux distributions

Because I’ve been thinking about adding support for Samsung Gear S (thanks to TizenExperts Twitter Competition, I’m one of the lucky Gear S owners) to my Raspberry Control app (proof-of-concept video), I had to install Tizen SDK for Wearable on my computer. It is, of course, possible to develop apps without relying on the official Tizen IDE, as long as the application complies with Tizen packaging rules, but installing the whole SDK seems to be a faster and a better solution. The Tizen SDK for Wearable is a comprehensive set of tools for developing Tizen-based Samsung Gear applications. It consists of IDE, Emulator, toolchain, sample code, and documentation. Unfortunately, Tizen SDK can only be run on Windows, Ubuntu, and Mac OS X. But what about other Linux distributions, like Fedora, which I use? So, I’ve started searching for some info about the possibility to run Tizen SDK on different Linux distributions. Instead of answers, I found only more questions (e.g. here [1]) and one tutorial which is no longer available [2]. Based on [2] and addressing the developers’ needs, I prepared a reworked tutorial on how to run Tizen SDK for Wearable on non-Ubuntu Linux distributions.

Powazki Cemetery – the oldest cemetery in Warsaw

Last weekend I finally found some time to visit Powązki Cemetery. One day is not enough to see everything, so most of these photos are taken in haste and don’t show the atmosphere of this place. For me Powązki Cemetery is yet another ‘must-see‘ in Warsaw :)

Powazki Cemetery - the oldest cemetery in Warsaw

From Wikipedia [1]:

Powązki Cemetery also known as the Old Powązki is a historic cemetery located in the Wola district, western part of Warsaw, Poland. It is the most famous cemetery in the city, and one of the oldest. Found here are the graves of many illustrious individuals from Polish history, including those interred along the “Avenue of Notables” (Aleja Zasłużonych) established in 1925.

Like many of the old European cemeteries, Powązki’s tombstones were created by some of the most renowned sculptors of the age, Polish and foreign. Some of the monuments are excellent examples of various styles in art and architecture.

“Frist steps with Raspberry Pi” – my articles

Last year I cooperated with mikrokontroler.pl portal. The results of this cooperation are set of articles about Raspberry Pi – small, cheap and very popular single board computer. All articles contain a wide range of material – from the general knowledge about hardware (GPIO, 1-Wire, etc.) to certain multimedia applications (RPi as a home media center or as a gaming console).

“systemd Hackfest” and FOSDEM – Burssels 2014

A week ago I had the pleasure to attend the FOSDEM (Free and Open source Software Developers’ European Meeting) and systemd hackfest in Brussels. FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event organised by the open source community for the community. It’s widely recognised as “the best open source conference in Europe“.

Below are some photos taken during my stay in Brussels.
