BeGeistert 19 Report

"BeGeistert 19 was held last weekend in Düsseldorf and was, as far as I can tell, a great success. I've been to BeGeistert twice in the past (I think 2002 and 2003) and in my opinion the spirit of BeGeistert hasn't changed since then.

Maybe there used to be some more non-coders among the guests and the focus was more on applications; that was of course because Haiku was still in its OpenBeOS nappies at that time...

Today, the main focus lies without a doubt on the development of Haiku, which is currently in the exciting time leading to its upcoming first alpha release. Most of the European core developers were there and discussed problems and possible solutions that they could implement and transfer to the code repository right away, as the conference rooms had a (most of the time working) internet connection."

Wicked ... BeGeistert events have always struck me as really fun events ... you Europeans have it too good with your currency and BeGeistert! Well done Charlie and Team.

da Barrett over at has written an interesting article on the basics of using Hey, a BeOS/Haiku program that allows calls to applications via their scriptable layer (BHandler objects).

Head on over to their site and check it out or click here for the Google Translate English version.
