Randa Meetings 2014 - Another Great Success


2014 Group picture, by Martin Klapetek (CC-BY-SA)

It's been quite some time since the Randa Meetings 2014 and even this year's edition of the KDE Community Summit called Akademy has already happened, but it's still nice to look back and see what was accomplished at this KDE Tech Summit in the middle of the Swiss Alps.

And before we tell you what all the seven groups that participated in the meetings this year (and because of the different group and collection of several meetings under one and the same roof it's called "Randa Meetings" with a plural s ;-) we would like to thank all the supporters and people who made this gathering possible. It's because of you that we were able to work hard for a whole week and make the software you love even better. On the group picture you see how diverse KDE is and that this year some KDE contributors could bring their families and partners and thus didn't need to decide between either family or hacking for KDE.

2014 Krita Sprint in Deventer, Netherlands

Though the Krita team was one of the first to start the tradition of having sprints, with the first Krita Sprint in Deventer, in 2005, Krita sprints are rather infrequent! But, of course, we also meet each other during the more regular Calligra sprints.

Anyhow... Krita developers and artists met again in Deventer in May 2014. It was the most awful weather you can imagine for a sprint—warm, sunny, bright, lovely to be outside! Long and lazy lunches, discussions out on the roof terrace until after midnight, walks through the park. Is it a wonder nothing much got done?

KDE PIM October Sprint

While not as traditional as the annual KDE PIM meeting in Osnabrück near the beginning of each year, a second meeting around October/November is starting to become a tradition of its own. Similar to last year and in contrast to the Osnabrück meetings—which usually focuses on discussing ideas and planning—this year's October sprint again concentrated on improvements to existing features.

2012 Randa Report [with updates]

“From the hacking rooms, we hear the whistle of the train as it travels up and down the Matter Valley. Most of us arrived on that train, and soon will be leaving. Another amazing mass KDE sprint is coming to an end, and again a lot has been accomplished.”
