Video Editing for foss-gbg

Editing videos for foss-gbg and foss-north has turned into something that I do on almost a montly basis. I’ve tried a few workflows, but landed in using kdenlive and, when needed, Audacity. I’m not a very advanced audio person, so if kdenlive would incorporate basic noise reduction and a compressor, I stay within one tool. […]

Working on QML Book

Do you remember QML Book? It started as a project between me and Jürgen Bocklage-Ryannel where we tried to fix the problem that there is no QML book out there. Back in the Qt 5.2 days, we spent wrote about a year. Unfortunately, the project has mainly been sitting idle since then. I’ve poked at […]

QML Weather

I recently took some time to develop a photo frame style home automation control panel. The idea is to control some common tasks of my home assistant setup from a panel instead of having to rely on the phone. To hide the panel, it currently act as a photo frame until touched. The build is […]

Complicating Licensing

I’ve recently seen a couple of attempts to present non-open source licensing as almost open source. What I’m talking about is Commons Clause and fair source. This sounds a lot like the failed shared source model promoted by companies such as Microsoft in the early 2000. Yes, I’m looking at you redis and neo4j. What […]

Work v2.0

Returning to work this autumn has a slightly different feel to it as I’m working on getting a new business up and running. This is both rewarding and stressful at once. Strangely enough, it actually felt good to get up early to get to work. The major hurdle during the bootstrapping phase is how to […]

I made a thing

Sweden is currently going through one of the worst droughts in recorded history. One of the consequences of the high temperatures is that my vegetables needs constant watering. Of course this is a task that I want to automate. I already run home assistant for some basic automation at home (mostly lights). Now, I got […]

D-Link and the GPL

Recently my router died and to get netflix flowing again, I went out and got the cheapest router I could find in the vicinity. I ended up with a D-Link DIR-842 on discount for 499 SEK. In the box, I discovered this: It tells me to go to D-Link’s page for GPL licensed software to […]

Tooting

As web 3.0 is the next big thing – and I really like the idea – I decided to give mastodon as spin (second time around). Feel free to follow me – I’m @e8johan@mastodon.technology. As I’m just getting started, I’m exploring this whole space a bit. I picked the instance to join (mastodon.technology) based on […]

New adventures – old challenges

Times pass and we all change. I’ve realized that I’ve gone from mostly coding at work, to almost not coding at all (I reflect on this in the Under utveckling pod – Swedish only). I’ve also realized that what I do in automotive has a much wider application (see my fosdem talk on this). Thus, […]

Five days left

I use to joke that the last week before foss-north is the worst – everything is done, all that is left is the stress. This year, we have the broadest program yet. 25 speakers talking about everything from community policies, GPU isolation, blockchain, historical KDE software, retro computers, IoT, Android, SailfishOS, bug triaging, crowd funding, […]
