Imaginemos un mundo libre

Hello Planet and Welcome KDE Google Summer of Code

with 2 comments

Hello KDE Community.

My name is Ronny and I am from Peru (South America). I am a KDE user for about 3 years and now is time to develop for KDE.

My KDE life started some months ago and I already started doing some small contributions like Promo work here and developing a game in Playground called KPeg.

But, the happiness I feel right now is beyond words, because this year I was accepted for the Google Summer of Code Program to work on the Open Source Project I love: KDE.

A big thanks to the KDE community and specially to two KDE developers who will be my mentors: Thomas McGuire (Kmail) and Stephen Kelly (Akonadi, Kjots, Grantlee author). Guys, thanks for answering my questions and all your support during all the GSoC process.

I am going to work with the KDE-PIM team on integrating the Grantlee library in KDE PIM applications to improve the theming support.

So, let us have fun with this GSoC project and make KDE rock even more.

Abstract of the Proposal.

I am also happy that another person from Peru was accepted to work on this KDE/GSoC: Percy Triveño who will work with the KDE-EDU team on integrating KmPlot into KAlgebra.

Happy KDE SoC to everyone.
