KDE Proudly Presents Kirigami UI!

KDE has a long tradition of providing user interface components beyond the basics that are offered in Qt itself. With KDE Frameworks 5, these have become more easily available for Qt developers who are not part of KDE. Now, with KDE's focus expanding beyond desktop and laptop computers into the mobile and embedded sector, our QWidgets-based components alone are not sufficient anymore. In order to allow developers to easily create Qt-based applications that run on any major mobile or desktop operating system (including our very own existing Plasma Desktop and upcoming Plasma Mobile, of course), we have created a framework that extends the touch-friendly Qt Quick Controls: Welcome Kirigami UI!

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.

KDE Frameworks Sprint - How to Release a Platform

KDE Frameworks 5 is the result of two years of hard work porting, tidying, modularizing and refactoring KDELibs4 into a new addition to the Qt 5 platform. In January, Alex Fiestas announced The KDE Barcelona Hub—an office where anyone is welcome to come and work on KDE projects. It was just what the Frameworks team needed to finish off the code so it could be released to the world. Read on for some of what happened.
