Sam Thursfield lives in Manchester. He likes free software, friendly UI, ska music and bike riding. He's been a Gnome user since around 2.8 and we can say he is a "Multi-task man". At the same he works with Codethink he grows vegetables (few days before GUADEC he'd made his first attempt) and plays trombone.
In GUADEC 2012 Sam talked about "Baserock - a viable solution to build GNOME OS", which is a new way of building systems that some guys from Codethink have been working on this year: "Myself and Javier have been spending time getting Gnome integrated to the system, and we'll be talking about that as well and showing how far we got".
From GUADEC 2012 he expects to go back home with lots of great ideas that he really wants to fix or implement in his minimal free time. Thanks Sam for your time. We hope that when you get home, your veggies have grown!
