KDE has been selected as a Google Summer of Code 2016 mentor organization

GSoC 2016 logo

All interested students are encouraged to begin working with the KDE community.

The KDE GSOC guide is a good place for students to start before beginning to create their proposals. The KDE community creates software in teams; students should find a team working on software they want to help with, get to know team members, familiarize themselves with the code-base, and start fixing bugs.

The people who package and distribute our software to the world are crucial to our user's experience. In keeping with our original KDE vision, we want to improve the working relationships between distributions and KDE developers. Not only do we want to foster professional friendship, but we also want to help our software shine in each distribution.

Share your love for Free Software

#ilovefs banner

Love! Ah, that “serious mental disease” which make us reveal the best (and, sometimes, the worst) of our unconscious fantasies, longings, fears, defenses and internal images. And we love many things, sometimes in unthinkable and wacky ways. Some people love the melancholic sound of the cello, ice-cream, dancing, and reading, while others may even love insects, slowly pulling shoelaces out of sneakers, or that feeling after sneezing. It doesn't matter what, we love anything that makes our neurotransmitters dancing frantically and aimlessly like there is no tomorrow.
