E  para quem quiser começar a colaborar e quem sabe também ir para o próximo Akademy, dê uma olhada no Junior Jobs: https://bugs.kde.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=jj

São pequenos bugs que não exigem muito conhecimento para resolver mas que te ajudarão a pegar experiência para que possa colaborar em outros projetos.

Antes de começar, não esqueça de dar uma lida no KDE Techbasehttp://techbase.kde.org.
Bom trabalho!

The future is coming on.

Well, after being robbed in the beginning of the semester, I think I’m ending this time in a great way, cause…

Akademy 2010

In two days I’m going to cross the ocean and meet all that people that I’ve used to read the blogs and talk in IM. Me and Amanda (KDE-MG and KDE Lovelace), are going to talk about the Women in KDE and KDE Lovelace, with others girls, like Lydia (Amarok) and Anne Marie (KDE – Edu) and Seele (KDE – EvKDE – Usability).

I am looking forward for this meeting to exchange experiences and learn more and more with all the crowd that are making the KDE getting better every day.

In these 10 days I’m planning also to get up to date in the new Qt technologies that are popping up like QML, while being there at Akademy, I will be blogging here and in the KDE-Lovelace blog, and in july, in the FISL (International Forum on Free Software) me and Amanda (again!) will be talking about our experience with free software, about the news from Akademy and how the women have been working for KDE and how can you do that too!

cya =)

Lovelace feelings

The coolest thing about  Akademy was that ( besides being able to socialize with people I knew only by e-mail ) I discovered that extreme programming really works, which that in mind we began developing a cardgame – a Bohnanza clone (Tomaz’s idea ). The plan now is to put it into gitorious.org and finish it. The group that are developing it ( Me, Francisco, Taiane and Victor ) are using it to learn and improve the Qt Knowledge. and we are also open to anybody that wants to contribute ( and help the project ). The work yielded much more than if we had stayed at home coding / studying alone.

In an unrelated note, the we ( Aracele, Taiane, Yasmin, Jordanna, Amanda and Me ) are also starting an movement inside Brazil to gather more woman contributing to KDE, and establishing a group of Woman within KDE ( brazilian Users and Developers ).

So we create the KDE-Lovelace – kdelovelace.wordpress.com.

The group is beginning with collaborators of kde-promo and programmers that want to use their free time to help KDE, and also to share a bit of time to help newcomers that doesn’t know how to start. The idea is that the group will grow between novice and experienced users to help pump KDE in Brazil and everywhere, no matter what you have between your legs. The space is made to help shy or intimidated woman, so they will know that there’s a space where their doubts will be heard and worked out by other woman, without the fear of a unconfortable joke. we are not here to try to prove that woman are better than man, but to simply help and gather more girls to the project, in a friendly help the project and more girls to the project.

We do not want to be a feminist group of users, but a group to increase collaboration with KDE.  How do we want do this? Showing that woman’s place is in IT, through the  blog kdelovelace.wordpress.com,  by talks at events of the community, By talks and lectures in events ( like Akademy ) and through social networks like indeti.ca / twitter.

Inside the KDE Project we have a considerable amount of woman, and very well treated, they can guarantee you that, but few know about their activities and contributions to free software.  Here we will show what the veterans have done and how beginners can become active contributors :)
