Lately I've been feeling the itch to participate in any project that's related to the Gnome desktop. In particular, I've been wanting to work on something that I would use on a regular basis. There are several projects I regularly depend on, such as gedit, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.
One thing that I definitely depend on to get my work done is background music. I usually put on my headphones, plug them into my phone, and listen to either Howard Stern, my podcasts or music while I get things done.
So last week I decided to check out the gnome-music project and see if I could help out. I joined the #gnome-music channel on freenode and asked how I could help.
The first challenge is going to be to get my laptop ready for development. I use Fedora 18, the currently latest release, as my desktop and even that is a little behind the curve of what's needed for development. But, not to worry! There are ways to address the problem and get what I need to do the work.
Over the next few weeks I'll, hopefully, have some tips and help to post about here as I get involved. My first challenge is to provide a way to access music stored on Google music as well as on OwnDrive.
This is going to be fun!
