Mobile phones are the most ubiquitous computing devices, with a market of over four billion users. For many parts of the world, the mobile device is their only connection to the internet and the world. But where is free and open source (FOSS) today in regard to mobile devices?
Sriram Ramkrishna explores what’s happening with the GTK toolkit and the changes being made to support not only the mobile profile but others like automobiles, tablets, and embedded devices. GTK and the platform are gearing toward helping entrepreneurs build the next-generation product on a FOSS platform using the wonderful advantages of leveraging the social and scaling aspects of open source.
Sriram Ramkrishna is a 22 year old veteran of free and open source software working primarily in user space projects like GNOME as his personal passion. As a professional, Sriram has expertise in open source programs, corporate sponsored open source projects, and sales and marketing. Sriram’s current passion is to build a measurable market for applications on the Linux platform through efforts like Linux Application Summit.
