(please answer only to kde-promo)
Hey KDevelop people,
and hey people who know a lot about our development tools :)
I am currently working on some stall posters for the upcoming Qt World Summit.
At  you can find the current draft for a KDE Frameworks 5 poster (also
still in discussion). Another important poster for the audience there is a
poster about all the awesome tools we offer in KDE to make development easier.
Here, you can find my current draft:
I am currently eagerly looking for some input to the poster content. Since
time is running out, the poster should be finished at the end of this week to
have it printed in time :/ (QtWS is in exactly two weeks)
Parallel to the content discussion, I am also discussing the layout/design; so
you do not have to worry about the design, it will be updated soon.
For now my questions are:
* what is missing?
* what is wrong?
* what is not clear?
* does anyone have better screenshots?
Looking forward for your input,
PS: for completeness, especially for the KDevelop list, please see my initial
mail attached, which explains who the target audience for the poster is
