KDE at SCALE 5x

Filed under
KDE

KDE was once again well represented at the 2007 Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE 5x), demonstrating to show-goers why it is the most popular Linux desktop. There were talks, demonstrations from KDE developers and and thank yous in return.

Celeste Paul started the expo off by giving a talk on Usability in Open Source Software Development at the Women in Open Source Mini-conf held on Friday. She and Chris Lee, who flew down at the last minute to help, were the main representatives of KDE, manning the booth on Saturday and Sunday along with the able help of locals Daniel Dotsenko, who was instrumental in organising the booth, Mike Elliott, who agreed to stand in for Daniel on Sunday and Aaron Johnson.

Demonstrations were given to those who stopped by, questions were answered, and CDs were given away.

Full Story.
