Parley status

I'm interested in the status and the future of Parley.

In the last weeks I evaluated many vocabulary lerning solutions/programs for 
my kid. As a long time KDE user I choosed Parley at first. It works ok but has 
some bugs which needs to be fixed for serious use. Also I find the user 
interface confusing in some parts, espacially for kids.

So I tried other program and websites. In short: they are all not very good in 
my opinion. Here and there are good things but I didn't find an overall 
satisfying solution. 
Finally I still see a potential in Parley, I like the functionality and I have 
many (rough) ideas what could be improved.

For some time now I wanted to dig a little bit into kde development, so I'm 
thinking to start working on Parley. But the question is if it's worth it.

What do you think? 
Is Parley dead? 

I might join the KDE Edu sprint 2017, if it's ok to come there for a Qt/KDE 

I'm a software developer, mainly using web technologies like php, js, 
typescript. In the past I did a bit C, Modula 2, Oberon.

Is there somebody around Hannover (Germany) who can give me an introduction to 
kde development?
