WilberWeek 2017

leave a comment »

For the past three days, I am in El Bruc, a little village on the side of Montserrat near Barcelona, for WilberWeek — the annual retreat for members of the GIMP and GEGL communities. We have rented out half of the Can Serrat art residency for 10 days of good food, idyllic surroundings, sedated discussions and a bit of moody hacking.

So far, I have spent my time eating paella; understanding the nuances of non-destructive image editing from Øyvind Kolås; walking in the countryside; and poring over Darktable and Shotwell to learn the workings of various “exposure and blacks” tools and get RAW decoding right. I have vague expectations that this will greatly improve the image editing experience in GNOME Photos.

I am grateful to the GIMP project for inviting me and sponsoring my stay, and especially to Jehan Pagès and Aryeom for coming all the way to Barcelona to pick me up.
