Migración semi-forzosa de un investigador español

Jueves, 18 de diciembre de 2014 3 comentarios

Después de mucho tiempo vuelvo a encontrar un momento de tranquilidad para escribir en el blog sobre un acontecimiento que dará un vuelco a mi vida. Una migración en busca de la felicidad, paz interior y porque no decirlo, una remuneración apropiada.

Al contrario que otros muchos científicos españoles que se han visto en la obligación de tener que abandonar el país para encontrar un trabajo digno relacionado con su campo de investigación, ese no ha sido mi caso. Leer más…

An experiment with biicode (A c++ dependency manager)

Lunes, 6 de octubre de 2014 3 comentarios

Logotipo de biicode

Biicode is a free file-based dependency manager that helps C++ developers to reuse code, resolve dependencies with 3rd libraries, configure and compile projects (Many of these things are achieved  thanks to its great integration with CMake). This is a very short brief about what biicode is, but I’m not writing here to describe or mention all the features of this tool but for exposing an experiment I wanted to perform. If you want to learn more about the project, visit their webpage.

The experiment consists into measuring how much time a C++ developer can save coding some basic examples depending on a 3rd library when he/she uses biicode compared to the normal way to proceed with C++ code. It’s important to explain my professional background in order to better understand the conclusions of this post:

  • I’ve being a Linux user & freak for more than 10 years.
  • I’ve being working professionally with C/C++ projects since 2008.
  • I’ve configured dozens of C++ projects with CMake since then.

Acquiring the Logitech C920’s H264 stream using gstreamer

Sábado, 26 de octubre de 2013 Sin comentarios

Webcam Logitech C920

Recently some web-cameras including onboard HD video encoding have appeared in the market. One of these cameras is the Logitech C920, and I had the opportunity to play with it at work. This camera is able to produce a 1080p H264-encoded stream at 30 fps, but I wasn’t able to access properly to it the first time I deal with this issue in Ubuntu 12.04 more than one year ago. At those moments, the camera was so novel that even v4l2 didn’t include support for H264 pixel format. Luckily, at the publishing date of this post, some alternatives can be used for accessing successfully to the compressed stream. In this post I will explain how to do it with the latest versions of gstreamer. Leer más…
