The KDE Randa Meetings are a small gathering of KDE contributors in the village of Randa, Switzerland. For the fourth year, the intense Randa sprints will include key KDE projects and top developers, all collaborating concurrently under one roof, isolated from noise and distractions. Funds are being raised to support the meetings.
"The sprints in Randa are special. Surrounded by the mountain landscape, intense collaboration happens as everyone gathers in one place. Meeting there means getting work done and no escape from planning, discussing and coding." says two-time Randa attendee and KDE Accessibility hacker, Frederik Gladhorn.
Randa 2012 will be held from 21 to 27 September 2012. The meeting participants have ambitious goals that will benefit KDE users and developers.
Every previous Randa meeting has been concentrated and productive, generating exceptional results; organizers and participants expect the same and more this year. The Randa meetings have produced significant breakthroughs in the past such as:
This year, 35 developers from all over the world will be at the Randa meeting. In seven inspiring days full of hard work, they will accomplish more than even they can imagine. Driven by a commitment to supporting Free Software for all people.
While the participants are unpaid volunteers, there are hard expenses, such as accommodation, food and travel. If you are not attending, you can still support the Randa meeting by making a donation. As in the past, the Randa meeting will benefit everyone who uses KDE software.
The fundraising goal is €10,000. Please donate what you can to help make Randa 2012 possible.
