LCA and hiring

I’m in Sydney for LCA 2007 this week, and this should also be my debut post on the conference planet. This is the first time I’ve made it to the other side of the world for this conference, and I’m really glad I came. It’s definitely one of the cooler conferences I’ve been to, slickly run and with an excellent programme of talks, so massive congratulations and thanks are due to the organisers and volunteers. The weather’s a stark contrast to the French Alps (I was skiing last week!), although thankfully it’s quite mild at the moment and not gotten too hot for a Pom like me. :D It’s always cool to catch up with people who I’ve not seen for a while, and put names to faces for a whole load of others I’ve not met yet. If you’re around, reading this in time, and interested in the Telepathy VOIP/IM framework, my talk is today (Friday) at 11am. If shameless bribes help, I’ve also got some funky Collabora and Telepathy shirts I need to give away before I head back to the UK.

The second bit is that Collabora‘s looking for a couple of people to either join us in Cambridge (UK) or work with us as a subcontractor. We’re currently doing loads of cool and totally open source stuff with IM, voice & video streaming and collaboration technologies. We’re looking for people with experience with some/many/all of C, Python, Glib/Gtk, D-Bus, GStreamer and RTP. If you’re interested, send mail to jobs(á)collabora.co.uk, or if you’re around at LCA then come and find me if you want a chat.
