Re: [kde] Need help




A good idea is to try some Qt tutorials first to get a hang of how Qt work ni 
general, how to use the documentation, etc.

Then either check if you want to extend an application you are using yourself, 
or find one that isn't too big.

When I started contributing to KDE 15 years ago I started with helping out at 
KDE Games, testing, bug fixing, then smaller features.
Because working on Games is fun :)

Cheers,
Kevin
