KDE Meetup

KDE Meetup is an event for Qt/KDE contributors and open source enthusiasts to meet up, share their knowledge, contribute, learn, play, have fun and create limitless possibilities using Qt and KDE. It is the first large scale open source Meetup in Gujarat and the largest KDE event in India after conf.kde.in in 2011. It will run for 2 days and it shall be a really great opportunity for all those who wish to get started on Open source contribution to learn about it. Our primary focus is to introduce people to the world of infinite possibilities of Open source development by teaching them about the basic tools for development including Qt.

We needed a forum to gather as many KDE contributors as possible at one place again after conf.kde.in 2011. FOSS events like those of KDE itself have been always concentrated around then same region in the country and we are trying to keep that going in another region as well. So Indian KDE volunteers along with GDG DA-IICT came together to organize a KDE conference to spread awareness and knowledge by organizing a really lively and enjoyable event which shall appeal to the students and combine the core elements of learning and fun. The expertise of the speakers and the quaint and cool campus environment shall also serve as prime factors in making the event a pleasant and extremely insightful one.

Here are a few things we have in mind for the conference:

  • Organizing talks and workshops by seasoned Qt and KDE developers
  • Organizing hackathon by experienced Qt and KDE developers
  • Brainstorming new ideas that could be possible with Qt and KDE code
  • Hack a lot of Qt and KDE code
  • Meet new people and share the passion of making awesome software and being a part of a rich community
  • Have a lot of fun (a key requirement of the event)
