Last week I was attending the LinuxTag 2014 in Berlin. The plan was to give three workshops—each day one—introducing potential contributors into the wonders of KDE development and otherwise enjoy the event. But Jos had other plans for me: he convinced me to man the KDE booth in our shared OpenSUSE/Owncloud/KDE area, so that’s what I did, at least for most of the time. This rewarded me with lots of feedback from our user base and I was able to help quite some users with their favorite KDE issue. Also I met a few of my fellow KDE contributors and had a chat with them. All in all it was a fun experience.
The workshops themselves were pretty successful. I had not that much guests, but the few who showed up had all a genuine interest in the topic. In case your interested: The slides for the workshop are here, the sources of mentioned demo application—yet another clone of the ubiquitous 2048 game—may be obtained from a scratch repository of mine.
