Review on GNOME 3 Application Development Beginner's Guide

A couple of days ago, I got contacted by folks at Packt Publishing to provide a review about GNOME 3 Application Development Beginner's Guide, written by Mohammad Anwari who has over 13 years of experience in software development and has been working with Linux-based systems and applications in GNOME, and Qt platforms.

I haven't got a chance to peek into the chapters yet but I'll be getting a free e-book to charge my eyes from very soon. Advertisements declare about the book describing GNOME 3 development environment installation on many popular linux distributions, best-practices from mockups upto running applications, accessing data with EDS, i18n and localization, Unit testing framework in GLib, Gdk and Gtk+ and multimedia programming with GStreamer among others which seem a lot in just one place. I'll hopefully scan it soon and provide more precise reviews thereafter.


  1. Too bad the book is probably already obsolete.

    1. I was thinking exactly the same. The GNOME modus operandi is to reinvent everything every 5 years. Paper is useless for documenting that.

  2. readings were really very good. I will bookmark this blog so that I could often visit this blog often to read the latest article from your blog. I wait for your arrival at our website ...

    thanks, ...
