Community and Events
FOSDEM is Europe's biggest meeting of Free Software developers and KDE turned out in force at it last weekend. As well as talks in the main track on KDE and KDevelop, the KDE Developers' room hosted a series of other talks. We also ran a stall and still found time for some hacking.
The schedule for the KDE developers room talks at FOSDEM is now online. Our final interview with the speakers is with Scott Wheeler who will be giving a talk titled "KDE 4: Beyond Hierarchical Data, The Desktop as a Searchable Web of Context". FOSDEM is this weekend, see you there.
