Do you have a project in mind which will help KDE? Season of KDE might
be for you.
KDE Student Programs has announced the 2016-2017 Season of KDE for
those who want to participate in mentored projects which enhance KDE
in some way.
Projects from past Seasons of KDE include new application features,
the KDE Continuous Integration system, new reporting for developers, a
web framework, porting and a lot of other work.
Successful mentees earn a certificate of completion along with a very
cool tee shirt and other goodies. Any person who wants to complete a
project is eligible to enter.
Those who want to mentor are asked to add ideas here:
https://community.kde.org/SoK/Ideas/2016. The sooner the better,
please! *This means you!*
Students are asked to begin discussion about your ideas or those on
the various KDE mail lists and IRC channels even before applications
open. The more consultation is done with the team you want to work
with, the more likely you are to succeed.
The schedule this year will be:
* 7 October to 31 October: Student and mentor applications
* 1 November: Official coding period begins. Students can start work
after once mentor and student agree on the project scope and the
* 28 February : End of coding period
