ReMoko is my Google Summer of code project,  is a application that can make Openmoko-powered devices appear to be a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device, through a full Bluetooth HID driver. Here are some screenshots of the UI:

In the last months I worked for Google as part of Google Summer of Code program, the program was a very good experience for me, I learned a lot and meet very interesting people that help me in my project. Now I gonna slow down my work to rest a little bit, but soon I will be back to improve my open source projects.

I have to thank my mentor Daniel Willmann that helped me in all the OpenMoko stuff, Claudio Takahasi that helped me in some BlueZ related problems and all Google Staff that made Google Summer of Code a incredible learning experience, specially to Leslie Hawthorn for this very hard work, responding to thousand of mails, shipping stuff and resolving all the problem in few minutes. LH you never sleeps ? :)

The new OpenMoko distribution as released in the wild today.

Om 2008.8 is one of the many distributions that currently work on the Openmoko phones. You can compare a distribution with an Operating System on normal computers.

Om 2008.8 is the successor to Om 2007.2 and had ASU as a codename. Om 2008.8 uses EFL for the launcher, custom UI applications and Qtopia on X11 for telephony. It is the first step from GTK+ on x11 to using multiple toolkits in combination. Om 2008.8 now supports EFL, Qtopia and GTK+ applications.

Beautiful Code

Today I received my surprise gift for my participation in Google Summer of Code, was I expected it is a book, a really good one :)

Google sent me a copy of Beautiful Code, this book is a compilation of articles here leading programmers explain how they think and how they resolve common problems during their programming.

Google sent the book by FedEx in a economical rate, that is really fast, I get the book in a few days, some guys in the students private mailinglist told me that get the book in Europe in less than 3 days, one of those guys calculated that the book traveled at a average speed of 112 km/h :)
