Geany IDE

When I first started programming, I used KDevelop because I used KDE. Then I realized I didn’t need KDevelop because I didn’t use other functionalities than the editor, so, I switched to Kate which KDevelop uses as editor.¬† I like the default font-type, the highlights, the commands, everything…

When I moved to GNOME (and now I am addicted to it) I saw Gedit and didn’t like it – I still don’t – so, continued to use Kate in GNOME

Sometime ago I found Geany, a lightweight GTK based IDE for several languages. I think it is simply wonderful! It loads in a second, always light and it supports every language I work with. The language support is not equal for every language, it is more complete for PHP than for Python for example but it’s OK. It has word completion, shows your methods and has other useful functions like replacing a word in every file opened in the editor. It even has the build/run functions!
If your computer is like mine, kinda allergic to Eclipse (it drags it’s ass everytime I do something new in Eclipse), try Geany. It SIMPLY works!

Open Delta aLANtejo 07


Open Delta aLANtejo 07 is going to be the fourth edition of the Portuguese event aLANtejo organized by NEEI (see the About section of this site).
The event consists in a 3 days congress + a LAN party which happens to be the biggest one in Portugal. It will occur in the city of √Čvora in October 19th, 20th and 21st.
The word “Open” is now included in the event’s name because it is the first time that the whole event’s congress will be about FOSS.
Along with it we are organizing the 1st Portuguese Open Source Contest – restricted to Portuguese developers.

In the event there will be some of the world wide famous Linux people (soon to be announced in the event’s web site).
