Successful KDE Finances Sprint Held

On April 23rd, developers from various finance-related KDE applications gathered in Eschborn, near Frankfurt, Germany for the first ever KDE Finance Sprint. The fellowship was composed of developers from KMyMoney, Kraft and Skrooge. This was a week after the ash cloud stopped all flights over Europe. Until the last minute, it was not clear whether those who were coming by plane would be able to make it. Fortunately, the airports opened just in time. Read on for a report for the meeting.

Last Days at Akademy 2010

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. Friday was the last day at Akademy and by the evening a few people had already gone. Others were sitting at Demola, scattered around the place or chatting in small groups. And some decided to stay at TOAS and use the public spaces there for hacking and talking. Read on for what happened in the last few days!

Planet KDE Goes International

During Akademy the promo team discussed the idea to have localized Planets in different languages. The same day, Planet Master Jonathan Riddell jumped on it right away, and already the Planet in Spanish is online.

Blogs from various Spanish speaking bloggers and KDE contributors are aggregated there. Everyone interested in what is going on in the Spanish language KDE community can visit the site where you can also find an RSS-feed for easy syndication.

Akademy 2010: Almost Like Being There

Not everyone can make it to Akademy, although given the number of people here it almost seems like everyone did. For those of you not able to be here, we have been making great efforts to video the talks, capture the atmosphere through photographs and pick up some of the Akademy chatter through informal interviews with community members. If you can't be here, read on for the next best thing.

Georg Greve on KDE and the Supporting Membership Program

At LinuxTag 2010, the KDE community announced the "Join the Game" campaign to support KDE e.V.'s Supporting Membership Program. The first new member was Georg Greve, founder of Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). We caught up with him for a 'short' interview that turned into a two hour conversation about life, the universe and everything. The pertinent bits are excerpted below.

KOffice 2010 Summer Sprint Report

Hot on the heels of the 2.2 release of KOffice -- the first release we feel that users can give a try and use for real work -- the KOffice developers met in Essen-Horst in Germany, in the wonderful Linux Hotel. Thanks to sponsorship by the KDE e.V. and the hard work by Alexandra Leisse and Inge Wallin, we could spend three days discussing and hacking.

What Happened at LinuxTag

Last weekend a team of KDE volunteers (wo)manned a booth at LinuxTag. As hopefully many of you have already read about (and maybe already joined) on Wednesday the new Supporting Membership program was launched. There is some more content upcoming, but for now we'd like to give you all a quick taste of what those four days were like.
