Maria Leandro: How do you Fedora?

Red Hat
Interviews

I’m Maria Leandro, known also as Tatica and I work as a photographer on my own business, Tap.Pics. I work exclusively with Open Source tools, which has made my life quite interesting. I started with Linux back in 2005 and since then, I have never felt the need of change my OS. It started (like many other people), at college, and it became part of my personal and professional life. All my works have been related directly to Open Source technologies, including teaching and organizing events.

I started using Fedora in 2006, and still use Fedora as my base OS. I joined the community a bit later in 2008 and Fedora became a family to me. I have contributed with Design and Marketing, and have organized some events to attract more contributors.

Android 4.4 field handheld features 3-inch thermal printer

Two Technologies’s LTE-ready “N5Print” handheld runs Android on a Snapdragon 800 and has a built-in printer plus Smart Card, magstripe, and barcode support. Early smartphones were modeled in part on field-service handhelds, which in turn have increasingly imitated smartphones. This has been especially true in recent years as the product category has migrated from Windows Mobile and CE (and to a lesser extent plain Linux) to Android. In the past, handhelds, which are often available in commercial, as well as similar, but more robust military models, have trailed the current smartphone technology by several years. Yet, we’re seeing and more Android handhelds that rival high end smartphones, such as Arbor’s quad-core, 5.5-inch Gladius 5. Read more

Leftovers: KDE Software

  • PyKDE Future: Seeking a New Maintainer
    For anyone who has been paying any attention of PyKDE5 over the last year or so, it is no secret that development and maintenance has been at a standstill. I've been very busy with a family and small children, and that eats time like you wouldn't believe. (Unit number 2 is almost 6 months now, healthy and happy I can report.) But another important factor is that my interests have shifted towards web related technologies over the last few years.
