  • IsComputerOn - GSoC Interview: Sean Healy.
    d been thinking about a project of my own since BeOS days and since Haiku is pretty stable now I decided to start working on it Shortly afterward Matt posted the news about GSoC on the mailing list so I decided to apply And even though I didn t get accepted the application process got me working on Haiku instead of lurking on the list and got me building Haiku on my own again after downloading images for the last several months I didn t have room on my BeOS virtual machine to store the Haiku code so I had to build from Linux It was such a pain to have to shut down Windows and boot into Linux to update and build Haiku that I eventually gave up and started downloading images HG What would ve been your GSoC project Sean Healy Perl is my favorite language to write code in I ve been using a Perl module called Win32 GUI for years now to write GUI programs in Perl I ve also used Prima and wxPerl which are cross platform GUI modules for Perl I tried Tk as well but I didn t like it So I wanted to expose Haiku s API to Perl For now I m concentrating on the Application and Interface Kits but my long term plans are to expose all the kits HG What about that project intrigued you especially Sean Healy I use similar Perl modules all the time on Windows and since I plan to make Haiku my main OS once R1 is out I will sorely miss such a tool if it is not available And yes for Haiku I will abandon Windows even though for Linux I will not Sorry Tux HG After your application you had to delve a bit deeper into Haiku development What were your major difficulties in the beginning how do you think this could be improved and what went actually pretty well Sean Healy Well I don t have a great deal of experience in C I ve taken classes and written a couple of things for a previous employer but it never really grabbed my interest and it s not something I do on my own for fun So getting back into the swing of C slowed me down a bit at first But the biggest problem was that the bug I chose was marked easy and was in my opinion not that easy Every time I fixed a problem it exposed another problem which I then had to track down and fix The only way to really fix that would be to better evaluate the bugs and I don t think Haiku really has the manpower in terms of time available to the experienced developers to do that There are higher priorities HG What are your future plans you mentioned a scholarship Sean Healy The scholarship I just got is a pretty cool program Before World War II Europe was the place
