Greetings everyone,

We are very excited to announce the fourth edition of conf.kde.in, the
biggest KDE conference in India. This two day conference scheduled in March
will bring together Qt developers, KDE contributors, open source
enthusiasts and users from all across the nation. The event will give you
the opportunity to learn, share, contribute, innovate and create while
providing you endless possibilities with Qt/KDE technologies.

conf.kde.in is an excellent platform for you to learn about FOSS and start
contributing to it. The participants will be introduced to the KDE
community, and shall also be given an overview of the latest developments
in it. The talks and interactive sessions shall help strengthen your basics
and shall familiarize you with what it’s like to be a part of the KDE
community and help you to contribute to KDE and maybe for future
participation in programs like Google Summer of Code, Season of KDE and
Google Code-In.


Every speaker at conf.kde.in is a bonafide contributor to KDE, some of them
contributing since a decade. Attending the conference will give you the
opportunity to meet seasoned open source contributors, discuss with them,
exchange ideas with them, learn from them and also teach them something new.

Call for papers have been activated and the last day to submit talk is 31st
Jan, 2016. Do submit your talk at

Many of these contributors work for great companies (which themselves are
involved in various open source projects. Also you will find that many of
these contributors were students until recently.)

*Wondering what KDE/Qt is ?*

KDE is one of the largest international free software community. It has an
integrated set of cross-platform applications designed to run on GNU/Linux,
FreeBSD, Solaris, Microsoft Windows, and OS X systems.
KDE is known for its Plasma Workspace, an environment provided as the
default working environment on many Linux distributions, such as Kubuntu,
Pardus, and openSUSE.
