  • GNOME Maps Is Already Making Progress Via Outreachy
  • Work starts to continue

    It’s almost the new year, so I’m pleased to have series of patches ready for review that implement an important part of the UI needed for my Outreachy project. As soon as the patches get reviewed (and touched up), you’ll be able to manage the display of GeoJSON overlay files straight from the UI! Next up is the meat of my project: adding support for KML overlay files.

    Outreachy is the successor of the Outreach Program for Women (OPW). OPW was inspired by Google Summer of Code and by how few women applied for it.

5 open source fonts ideal for programming

What is the best programming font? First, you need to consider that not all fonts are created equally. When choosing a font for casual reading, the reader expects the letters to smoothly flow into one another, giving an easy and enjoyable experience. A single character for a standard font is akin to puzzle piece designed to carefully mesh with every other part of the overall typeface. When writing code, however, your font requirements are typically more functional in nature. This is why most programmers prefer to use monospaced fonts with fixed-width letters, when given the option. Selecting a font that has distinguishable numbers and punctuation, is aesthetically pleasing, and has a copyright license that meets your needs is also important. Read more
