Andrew Cowie and Davyd Madeley put on a good show for how to start
writing GNOME applications in C and Java. Andrew in particular
is an enthusiastic speaker, and understands that it's very difficult to
choose which talk/tutorial to go to and sitting for ninety minutes and
listening to one topic is sometimes difficult. I totally appreciate that.
And, by Torvald's Trousers, he's fast at using UIs - watching in work in
Eclipse makes you realise how good programmers can churn out a fully
implemented file browsers in an evening.
I'm going to have to kidnap one or both of them and bring them to the
CLUG Programmer's SIG meeting. This talk was exactly what the people
at the PSIG that I've been talking to have asked for.
