GStreamer Hackfest/Sprint

Location Milan, Italy - 28th to 31st March 2013

Primary contact: ChristianSchaller
Secondary contact: TimMüller

Relevant GNOME/KDE/Other team


The goal of this hackfest is to follow up on last year's GStreamer 1.0 hackfest in Malaga, try to fill in any gaps that are still open, and to discuss or hack on anything and everything GStreamer-related. Maybe even fix a few bugs. The target this year will be a lot more core GStreamer focused as opposed to the application focus of last years hackfest.

Agenda, goals


Please add your name here if you are interested in attending even if you are not sure you will be able to, as we want to measure general interest. We will be offering some travel sponsorship for this event, hopefully in collaboration with the GNOME Foundation and KDE E.v.

Please add your name and project affiliation below:

If you don't have a wiki account (and don't want to create one), you can email christian(.)schaller(at)gmail(.)com and I can add your name myself.



There is no attendance cost and the GStreamer project is looking for some sponsorship help to cover food and similar for the attendees.

We might get some companies to sponsor lunches and maybe dinners specifically, so we might go around to the usual suspects to ask for that.

Travel sponsorship

We have some limited funds to help with travel costs. The money will be allocated based on the focus of the hackfest and involvement level of those requesting sponsorship.
