MeeGo Conference: Telepathy 1.0 roadmap


The queue for registration

Along with something like 15 other Collaborans, I'm at the MeeGo Conference 2010 in Dublin. I've somehow managed never to visit Ireland before, so I'm hoping to find some time to explore a bit while I'm here.

I'm giving a talk titled The Road to Telepathy 1.0 tomorrow at 9am (yerk!) in the Vavasour Suite. I'll be sketching out a rough roadmap, or rather collection of related goals and schedules; also, there'll be an update on ongoing feature development. Right afterwards, at 9.30, the inimitable Mikhail Zabaluev is speaking on Developing Communication Protocol Implementations in Telepathy, based on Nokia's experience developing SIP, cellular and Skype backends for Telepathy over the past years.

Also, at the Collabora stand we're demoing DSP-accelerated video calls on an OMAP board using GStreamer, and integration with various services in MeeGo Netbook via Telepathy. Collabora folks working on all kinds of projects will be around; see you there!

The Guinness served at the top of St James' Gate brewery is rubbish. However, it's well worth several hours to look around the museum there.

There's also a great history walk of Dublin that starts at the gates of Trinity College.

Ace, thanks. Here's hoping I can find a few hours before I leave.

(But for now: I'm off to see if the conference Guinness is terrible.)

Skype backend
Do you know when the Skype backend will be available on the desktop too? It would be great thing to have Skype directly integrated into Telepathy.

Re: Skype backend
Misha mentioned in his talk that Nokia's Skype backend for Telepathy is currently only available on the N900, and he can't comment on future plans.

Collabora is actively investigating options for supporting Skype in Telepathy; obviously any support would be contingent on Skype's terms, which are not currently publicised.

Videos
Will the videos be uploaded to vimeo or blip.tv or are they only live streamed?

Re: Videos

According to the conference wiki:

All the tracks of the first two days will be recorded. The videos will be uploaded on the same evening or up to 48 hours later. The limitations are the editing work and also the risk of overloading the network bandwidth during the conference hours.

I'll update the post when I know where the talk is. :)
