PyGObject 2011 Hackfest

The GNOME Foundation has generously sporsored me to attend the GNOME Python2011 Hackfest in Prague. I will be working on porting Jokosher to the new PyGObject bindings which use GObject introspection, and Gtk 3.0. I will identify problems I have while porting, get a chance to talk to the developers and hopefully fix all the issues for other application developers before the new PyGObject is released.

I’ve already started porting Jokosher, but there is still a lot do to. I’m working on the easy stuff so far, and probably won’t get to the difficult bits until next week in Prague. But I’ve already found, and created patches for two simple bugs: one to identify the file that a dynamic module is loaded from, and another to list all the available attributes of the module. Both of these make it easier for me to use PyGObject in an interactive terminal; something I am doing a lot of while I am porting Jokosher and need to check the new method names.

I would like to thank the GNOME Foundation and the sponsors of this hackfest (especially Collabora) for funding the hackfest, and my attendance. I get a great opportunity to visit Prague and meet many really cool Python hackers. Thanks!
