Season of KDE 2010

This year was the 4th Season of KDE. Season of KDE (SoK) allows KDE to help support students and worthwhile projects who didn't manage to get one of the limited places in the Google Summer of Code program. Each SoK student works on their chosen project with a mentor from KDE with experience in that area to help and guide them.

We had seven successful students working on six different projects and five different programs. Let's have a look at them.

KDE/Google Summer of Code 2010 (Part 2 of 2)

For the sixth time, KDE has mentored students as part of the Google Summer of Code program. The students get to take their first steps writing code for a Free Software project with a mentor by their side for a summer. Once again our students have worked on exciting projects that you will be able to see in the next releases - many will even be part of the 4.6 releases. Nearly all of the 50 projects were finished successfully this year. This is the second of two articles about what the GSoC students accomplished.

Once again our students have worked on exciting projects that you will be able to see in the next releases - many will even be part of the 4.6 releases. Forty-six and a half of our fifty projects were finished successfully this year (the half refers to one student who was offered an internship after the midterm evaluation). This is the first of two articles looking at what the students achieved:

KDE in the Google Summer of Code 2010

This summer the KDE project will once again participate in Google Summer of Code! Summer of Code will allow KDE to grow and bring in new developers to the community.

KDE will begin accepting student applications on March 29th, and interested students should check out the KDE Community wiki for a list of potential ideas. Of course, individual ideas not on that page are encouraged as well, so submitting a proposal based on a new KDE application or feature is great as well.

For a list of success stories from the 2009 edition of the program (including pretty screenshots!), see our GSoC 2009 wrap-up.
