I'm very proud of seeing my column in May issue of Linux Format magazine.

In that column, I explain how important is the open-source for the industry and the users, putting as an example the graphics device drivers (where I have been working at Igalia for years).

Don't miss it!

I just wrote a blog post about using icecream for cross-compilation to reduce build times on slower platforms. This saved me a lot of time on my daily job at @igalia. I hope you find it useful as well!

Open-source Turnip driver for Qualcomm Adreno GPUs is now @VulkanAPI 1.1 conformant! This is a great milestone achieved by many amazing people including several @igalia colleagues (Danylo, Hyunjun, Eduardo and myself) along several years of hard work! khronos.org/conformance/adopte

Just published a blog post about VK_EXT_image_view_min_lod, a Vulkan extension that I contributed to its specification apart from CTS test development as part of my work at @igalia. Enjoy!


I wrote a blog post about X.Org Developers Conference 2021 last week, XDC 2022 and even XDC 2023 hosting proposals!

Introducción a Mesa por @samuelig

Hoy en día, hay un gran número de aplicaciones que necesitan aceleración gráfica por hardware en cualquier distribución moderna de GNU/Linux. La aceleración gráfica requiere un driver que soporte el HW presente en el sistema.

Esta charla dará una pequeña introducción a Mesa, la libreria que contiene los drivers libres de OpenGL y Vulkan.
