In regard to the Streamlined Onboarding goal which I coordinate, our focus was on enabling newcomers to start coding on KDE software.
Here's my take on what went on.
The KDE community is adding Matrix to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.
Matrix provides graphical instant messaging for desktop and mobile (with all its goodies: gifs, emojis, etc.), bridging for IRC channels, point to point encryption, file sharing, and more stuff that will help improve KDE's communications.
Always excited to return back to #FOSDEM, a vibrant event bringing together more than 8000 developers and #opensource hackers from all over the world! Come and say hi at @kde 's booth. 🤗 https://dot.kde.org/2019/01/30/come-home-kde-fosdem-2019
In 2018, @kde received more than $500 000 in donations. As a new #KDE e.V. member, this feels like a great opportunity and at the same time a great responsibility. Let's make the most of it! https://dot.kde.org/2018/10/15/kde-ev-receives-sizeable-donation-handshake-foundation
It's been 2 months already since #KDE's #Akademy2018 event in Vienna, yet the memories are still vivid. Here's my attempt to summarize my experience. http://neofytosk.com/post/kdes-akademy-2018-a-multi-hat-retrospective/
In a month I'll be presenting a talk at #Akademy2018 about #KDE's "Streamlined Onboarding" goal, looking to inspire current contributors to care more about introducing newcomers to their projects. Here's an update on this ongoing process: http://neofytosk.com/post/an-update-on-kdes-onboarding-goal-akademy-and-the-sprint-/
