    Samsung OSG Intern Profile: Michaël Bouchaud

    My name is Michaël Bouchaud, and over the years I’ve been a software developer with several companies; I’ve now become the most recent intern in the Samsung Open Source Group internship program. In this post, I’ll share my new activities, but first, I’ll introduce myself. How I Got My Start I’ve used Enlightenment since E16 was my desktop window manager while I was in high school. What attracted me to this environment the most is the fact that it’s lightweight and sits on the side of the interface, allowing it to be effective on both mobile and desktop. I was always a rather good math student, and I studied computer science, mathematics, physics and chemistry at university. At the end of my studies, I looked for work primarily in a Linux environment; the search was not easy, but I came across Substantiel, a little French company that works with Debian. It […]

    Samsung OSG Internship Program: Marcel Hollerbach

    My name is Marcel Hollerbach, and I’m the second intern to join the Samsung OSG as a part of their Enlightenment internship program. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and provide some background about how I got started in EFL development, and I’ll also explain what I’ll be doing as a part of this internship. My Path Towards EFL Development Currently, I’m studying Computer Science at the University of Karlsruhe, but I learned programming a while back by starting with Java. My interest eventually brought me to C and C++, and in 2011 I was first introduced to Enlightenment and EFL. A year later I discovered terminology: a great EFL-based terminal emulator; this led to me making the decision to learn to code with EFL. I began by attempting to write the wallpaper settings for Terminology, which is essentially a screen that can be used to select […]

    Introducing Stephen Houston: Our Newest Intern

    As the newest developer to have the privilege of taking part in Samsung’s Open Source Group internship program, I would like to give a brief introduction of myself, my experience, and my focus with Samsung. I am a software developer and analyst who holds a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems, and I’m currently working towards a Master of Business Administration. I’ve been an open source developer since I was 16 (a long time ago), and I have spent the majority of my time writing code related to the Enlightenment project. When I first stumbled across Enlightenment 17 in the early 2000’s, there was a widget library at the time called Ewl. The creator of Ewl, Nathan Ingersoll, took me under his wing and began teaching me C and how to use Ewl and other Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL). I used this knowledge to create and develop Ephoto: an EFL […]
