After my arrival in Vietnam, it took me 10 days to adjust to new environment. I contacted Alex again on Jan 23:
<polyachka> hi, are you sleeping?
<alsroot> not yet 🙂
<polyachka> isn’t it 5AM in Russia? I still have problems converting everybody’s time
<alsroot> hard to say 08:00AM here
<polyachka> in Russia?
<alsroot> in Barnaul
<polyachka> here in Saigon it is 9AM
<polyachka> did you stay up all night?
<alsroot> I mostly live in UTC 🙂
<polyachka> that’s amazing! 😉
<polyachka> so what are you working on right now?
<alsroot> coding stuff..
<polyachka> what kind of stuff?
<polyachka> are you working on certain activities?
<alsroot> I’m trying to support some of them but mostly do core code
<alsroot> and activity related code as well like http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activity_Team/Services
<alsroot> at then end my approximate TODO for several months is http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/User:Alsroot#Todo
<polyachka> what is core code? is it called foundation?
<alsroot> I meant code for sugar itself
<alsroot> not for particular activity
<polyachka> so why do you still need to work on core code if it is already created?
<alsroot> well, there are many places where that doesn’t work well
<polyachka> like where?
<polyachka> I wish I knew more about programming…
<alsroot> like thumbs view, could be useful to have such view(in addition to journal’s list view) e.g. for browsing images
<polyachka> but I studied economics in Sochi 🙂
<alsroot> well, I guess better to start from coding activities rather than core
<alsroot> there is an ongoing work to create hand book for activity devs
<polyachka> that is a good idea
<alsroot> Jim Simmons does this work
<alsroot> direct link to draft on flossmanuals.org http://en.flossmanuals.net/ActivitiesGuideSugar/Introduction
<polyachka> thanks, it works
