My name is Carles Sentis, I'm originally from Barcelona (Spain) but I moved to Ireland in the spring of 2000. At present I'm a student in the GMIT (Galway Mayo Instute of Technology) studying Computer & Software Development. From a very young age, I always been interested in computers and technology in general.
In 2007 when I first started using Linux and getting interested on open source and all that it involve's. I wanted to learn more about it and be able to develop application. So, I decided on making this little application, just as a learning purposes. They never teach GTK in college and I thought this application would be a good starting point.
The inspiration on doing this came after seeing this script on webupd8.org, and I saw that die.net had few more world maps on their website and I thought it would be nice to have it all together with a nice interface.
Thank you to...
