Camp KDE 2010 Wrapup

Last week, the KDE Community had their yearly Americas event, this year in sunny San Diego. Despite California not living up to its sunny reputation, the attendees certainly had a good time. The first three days featured talks about a variety of topics (day 1, day 2 and day 3), there were CMake and Qt development courses and of course several small meetings and work to be done. However there was more than sitting in the conference room at UCSD. We had a great time at Banana Bungalows on the beach, went out for a variety of food, had a few dragons and babies visit us and risked our lives getting to and from the university. Read on for some general impressions on the event, and for some motivation to attend Camp KDE 2011 next January, at a location still to be determined.

KDE Gears Up to a Free Cloud

Day 2 of Camp KDE kicked off with a bang when Frank Karlitschek announced the start of a significant new KDE project. The ownCloud initiative will complement the Social Desktop and Get Hot New Stuff efforts which are already dealing with social and collaborative data. Like those, the ownCloud initiative strives to combine the rich desktop interfaces made possible by the Qt and KDE libraries with the large amount of social information and data users are putting online.

Speakers Wanted for FOSDEM 2010

FOSDEM Logo
FOSDEM is the largest gathering of Free Software developers in Europe. KDE has a room for talks on the Saturday and a crossdesktop room on the Sunday shared with Gnome and XFCE. We want you to give a talk on any KDE related topic. Do you have an interesting program which more people should be using? Maybe you want to show off a language binding. Are you part of a distro which uses KDE? You could share cross desktop development experiences. Take a look at the 2009 schedule for more inspiration.

To submit a talk add it to our FOSDEM 2010 wiki page. The deadline is January 3rd.

We are also looking for helpers on the KDE stall. Please add yourself to the wiki page if you can take a turn talking to our users.
