The GNOME development platform has evolved considerably over the past year, and it's easier than ever to create fantastic apps for GNOME. In this talk, I'll describe the best way to approach the GNOME platform from a design perspective, and how to leverage that platform to create amazing application designs.
Along the way, I'll review the main design patterns that you should be familiar with, and I'll give an overview of the resources that are available for GNOME application design, including the HIG and the various design tools that are currently available.
This talk will be informative for anyone who wants to get started with the GNOME application development platform, as well as those who have used it in the past and want to update their knowledge.
