Akademy 2012 will happen from June 30th to July 6th in the beautiful town of Tallinn, Estonia. Mark the dates in your calendar and think about exciting stuff you could do there. A call for papers will be published in time.
The Quarterly Report of KDE e.V. for Q3 2011 has been published. It gives an overview of all the important activities the e.V. supports like the Desktop Summit in Berlin and various sprints but also the annual general assembly and finances. It also contains an interview with me about why KDE rocks at mentoring. Check it out here: http://ev.kde.org/reports/ev-quarterly-2011_Q3.pdf
Special thanks to Carl, Claudia, Inu and Rob and everyone who helped them for working on an awesome report.

I’m excited that KDE has once again been given the opportunity to work with a number of really awesome kids as part of Google Code-in 2011. Find out more about Code-in and the other 17 accepted organisations in the announcement.
This time Valorie, Sandro, Annma, Akarsh and Roger are helping me with admin duties. We’re looking forward to the flood 😀
If you’re interested in taking part in Code-in as a student have a look at KDE’s preliminary task list. Those will be moved to the official place in the next days. The real fun starts on November 21st and then you can start working on the tasks. If you have ideas for tasks that you would like to work on but that are not on the list then please propose them either to a potential mentor or the admins. Be quick with this. We can’t add tasks again until Dez. 16th once the program started. Please also carefully read the eligibility requirements.
KDE mentors: If you still have task ideas please add them to the wiki asap.
Should you have questions feel free to ask either on the kde-soc mailing list or in the IRC channel (#kde-soc on freenode).
