Building an LSB-conforming desktop application
The LSB project develops a set of standards to make it easier to develop portable application binaries. Since LSB 3.0 was released in July 2005, work has concentrated on adding "desktop" toolkits such as gtk+ and hopefully qt. This tutorial will focus on how to use the LSB build process incorporating these brand-new additions, to create LSB-conforming graphical/desktop binaries. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop and follow along.
Mats Wichmann has been kicking around first UNIX, then the Linux / open source world for rather a long time until finding his current home at Intel Corporation working on the LSB project. Mats has been a developer with the LSB project since 2001, and was elected LSB Chairman in January 2004, which role he still holds. At Intel he's titled Linux Standards Architect in the Opensource Technology Center. In the past he has worked as a consultant, trainer, and courseware developer. He has past standards/ABI experience with the MIPS ABI Group where he worked as technical director and is an Austin Group and an IEEE Standards Association member.
