Finally back home from #lgm19 .
Met a lot of people, some of which I already knew from irc(including meeting a Krita contributor, Tiar, for the first time), others which I knew would be there for other applications, but also fediverse people like @eylul which I hadn't expected! Very interesting conversations were had, as well as fun!
Anyway, attaching a picture of the back of the vest I wore. Took a while to figure out how to do this, have many prototypes.
I guess that was expected, but we just all realized that half of #lgm19 is in the ICE train from Saarbrucken to Paris this morning.
We should have planned a BoF or a workshop of some sort.
somehow the last day of #lgm19 managed to be as hectic as all other days. presentations, workshop, lunch, dinner and an impromptu informal user study of sorts. xD #lgm2019 was my first #lgm. Meeting developers of projects I use as well as fellow artists, advocates and educators, it was inspiring and a lot of fun.
now, it is one day of downtime (because I refuse to travel the day before bayram) then it is back to real life.
The #Blender workshop at the #lgm19 was really interesting. Blender dna system is really awesome for providing backward and forward compatibility. Also how the dna properties are accessible in the ui from python, make it really powerful to create ui on the fly. Danke Julien für dieses wunderbare Workshop.
In short they're creating a system for ink mixing (the colours we refer to as spotcolours) by defining said colors in HCL(lab version of hsl), as well as cmyk fogra, srgb, lab AND spectral(this is super impressive). And they're trying to get ink manufacturers to start using the system.
This could be a free open alternative to Pantone and RAL.
For the record: free and open source projects do want designers (of all kinds) to contribute (design, not code) http://opensourcedesign.net/jobs is full of projects asking for design contributions #opensourcedesign https://twitter.com/scottjenson/status/1097216404196081665
Ok, current #lgm19 talk/discussion is about contribution to floss projects.
The main issue that is being discussed is about selfhosting, and maintaining your own code...
@lgm I hope this one can be uploaded because if is a very difficult one.
