A couple of weeks ago we organized a @kde Megasprint in Nuremberg, Germany, with ~20 developers coming together to work on improving several of our technologies.

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 , a vibrant event bringing together more than 8000 developers and hackers from all over the world! Come and say hi at @kde 's booth. 🤗 dot.kde.org/2019/01/30/come-ho

@carl check out the 2nd talk on my personal webpage: neofytosk.com/talks/, there is also a link to the slides there if you don't feel like watching the whole talk. 😊

There's now a work-board with junior jobs for projects available! If you are looking for ways to get involved in @kde make sure to check out these tasks! 👉 phabricator.kde.org/project/bo …

I saw this on a comment thread on open source project interaction with community members (and vice versa). I’d say it nails it! #programming #foss #opensource

In 2018, @kde received more than $500 000 in donations. As a new e.V. member, this feels like a great opportunity and at the same time a great responsibility. Let's make the most of it! dot.kde.org/2018/10/15/kde-ev-

It's been 2 months already since 's event in Vienna, yet the memories are still vivid. Here's my attempt to summarize my experience. neofytosk.com/post/kdes-akadem

The video of my talk at @kde 's is available.
I discussed the ways we can improve the onboarding process for new contributors, in order for our community and its projects to stay healthy and vibrant in the long term. youtube.com/watch?v=qidWtWGK3J

Let's tell the MEPS to before 12 September and to say NO to the Censorship Machines: cy.saveyourinternet.eu

What an amazing week with the @kde this has been at . I gave a talk and a quick presentation, organized a BoF discussion, learned lots of things, made new connections and came back with a big to-do list!

If you haven't yet, it's worth checking out Kontalk as well! 😊

A great thing about @kde 's is the opportunity to participate in professional training on topics such as Nonviolent Communication, Online Fundraising and Campaigning, Documentation Writing and Public Speaking: community.kde.org/Akademy/2018

In a month I'll be presenting a talk at about '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: neofytosk.com/post/an-update-o

@fsfe Got me excited there for a moment, so sad this isn't a remote position. 😢
