Free Software Contributions in November 2015

This post came in a bit late, because I was unsure of what to write. I’ve been pretty busy this month with work and some family matters, so my contributions were pretty much non existant. Or so I thought. Then I remembered:

Contribution to Free Software is not just writing code, it’s anything you do for the improvement of a Free Software project.

This includes bug reports, translations, meetings, promotion, etc. And I’ve done plenty of those.

Let’s see now: (in what ever order I remember them)

KDevelop & Kate KDE Sprint in Berlin

At the beginning of this month, KDE held a sprint for KDevelop and Kate, where a bunch of us met and coded like crazy.

I was the first to arrive, in the morning of the 7th of October and around 10, and since I couldn’t get in the apartment till 14 I had some time to kill. So I decided to go for a little sight seeing in the nearby park.

In the evening people started to arrive, and started coding before unpacking. My first impression of them was: „These people really love to code”.

Plasma 5 and KF5 demo at UOS 2015

Two weeks ago was the release of the latest and greatest Kubuntu.

Kubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet brought to the market one very important and very significant change: It’s among the first distros to ship with Plasma 5 and the new KDE Frameworks 5.

In celebration of this, together with Aaron Honeycutt, Rick Timmis and of course Jonathan Riddell, I held a presentation of our new Kubuntu at the Ubuntu Online Summit 2015.
