Season of KDE is quite popular again this year. Yay! However we’re a bit short on mentors for ownCloud and digiKam projects at the moment. So in case you think you could mentor a student working on either of those 2 projects for the summer please get in touch with me asap.
PS: Mentors for other projects are also very welcome. Get in touch with me and I’ll make a list.
The accepted students for Google Summer of Code 2010 have just been announced. Congratulations to all of you. Make us proud and rock KDE 🙂
While Google has been very very very generous this year we still had to reject very good applications again simply because there were no slots left for them. The decisions have been tough but we hope to have done the best we can. Now if you are one of the people we unfortunately couldn’t accept into GSoC for KDE we have an offer for you. Like in previous years we are running Season of KDE for you. You will work on your project with a mentor by your side and a timeline to stick to and you will get a certificate and t-shirt plus possibly some Google swag once you have successfully completed your project. We can’t pay you like Google does unfortunately but you’ll have a great experience and learn a lot. We’re aware that you might not be able to work on it full-time like during GSoC so your mentor will work with you to adjust the scope and timeline of the project.
If you are interested in this opportunity please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work the rest out together.
We’ve just released a beta version of Amarok 2.3.1, codenamed Dark Star. It comes with sweet things like the Automated Playlist Generator and new context view applets showing similar artists for example. Check it out and help us get it ready for final release by reporting bugs and sending patches.
Want to take part in GSoC with KDE this summer? You have 24 hours left until the application period closes. If you haven’t sent in your proposal yet please do it asap.
