Anatomy of a developer sprint

,----[ Quote ]
| Two weeks ago I was at the annual KDE PIM 
| meeting at OsnabrÃck. It was the eighth time 
| that this meeting took place, and it was a 
| blast, once again. This is amazing, so I'm 
| taking the opportunity to reflect a bit on what 
| makes this meeting so successful, how it evolved 
| over time, and what we all can learn for running 
| great developer sprints.


KDE Gears Up to a Free Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Day 2 of Camp KDE kicked off with a bang when 
| Frank Karlitschek announced the start of a 
| significant new KDE project. The ownCloud 
| initiative will complement the Social Desktop 
| and Get Hot New Stuff efforts which are already 
| dealing with social and collaborative data. Like 
| those, the ownCloud initiative strives to 
| combine the rich desktop interfaces made 
| possible by the Qt and KDE libraries with the 
| large amount of social information and data 
| users are putting online.



Crowdsourcing the KDE Web Site

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE Project is taking a smart approach
| to reworking the KDE Website. Lydia
| Pintscher put out the call Sunday for
| contributors to pitch in with content and
| screenshots for one or more KDE programs by
| January 23rd.
| KDE apps are broken down into three batches
| on the wiki. Contributors are asked to pick
| one (or more) apps and submit a screenshot,
| and basic information about a project such
| as its homepage, features, IRC channels,
| and so forth.


Camp KDE About to Start!

| Tomorrow morning, the third major North American KDE event will
| start with an introduction by Jeff Mitchell and Aaron Johnson.
| At 11:00 a keynote by University of California San Diego professor
| Philip Bourne will introduce us to the university's Open Data
| initiative and after a lunch we'll get going with the various
| presentations.
