Rocking the World (Wide Web)
I’m super-excited to be going to the KDE Web World Sprint in June.
This will be taking place at the LinuxHotel in Essen, Germany. The sprint will bring together people working on the KDE web infrastructure, the wikis, the forums and the promotion team. Among the topics we will be working on is reviewing the current web presence of KDE and looking at how to improve communication between the various teams while strengthening the wikis such as UserBase and TechBase.
I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the attendees at the combined Booth, Web and Marketing Sprint (when the current KDE website design was first developed) in 2009 and at Akademy 2010. I have worked with most of the others over mailing lists and IRC in the meantime. However, it’s always good to get to meet people in person and, with a five day sprint, we should be able to put the communication structures in place to better manage KDE’s web properties and also make some tangible improvements during the meeting itself.
In other news, we will hopefully be holding a promotion team sprint in May, in which we can look at the next challenges in promoting KDE and our software to new audiences.
