A couple of weeks ago we organized a @kde Megasprint in Nuremberg, Germany, with ~20 #KDE 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.

I love the idea of static site generator, it secure and fast. But I still didn't find any one with gettext support, they are all using their own non standard translation system.

@gael What's the difference with stock Nextcloud?

@crydotsnake Learning for my tomorrow exams 😭 . Scheiße Klausur.

@brainblasted Someone reported a bug today in KDE 4.14. He is a CentOS 7 user. :(
I quite like the approach of KDE Neon: having with a stable base, but an up to date desktop version.

Cantor, KDE's user-friendly interface to your favorite mathematical applications, gets better support for plugins and improved Markdown and LaTeX implementations in Applications 19.08, allowing you to perform calculations and visualisations like these:

Searching for a shared room in Germany is horrible. I had more than 15 interviews and I got for the moment no positive response. 😥

Ich finde die Suche nach einem WG-Zimmer in Deutschland schrecklich. Ich habe über 15 Interviews bis jetzt gemacht und habe keine Positive Antwort bekommen. 😥

Kontact improved a lot lately. And since akonadi is just a cache, you shouldn't need to backup it, just the configuration with pim data exporter.

It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.
