THE INTERVIEW

In what ways do you make a contribution to KDE?

I develop some code in kdelibs (mostly libkdecore) and I am currently the maintainer of the low-level networking code. I have also contributed to the ioslaves, as an extension of my own networking framework, and a bit regarding encodings/Unicode-issues. The application I watch most closely is Kopete, which is probably the most visible application in kdenetwork, at least now that KMail has left us for kdepim. However, I don't consider myself a Kopete developer: I merely follow the development and try to give input to the actual developers (who are, by the way, doing a great job).

Android 4.4 field handheld features 3-inch thermal printer

Two Technologies’s LTE-ready “N5Print” handheld runs Android on a Snapdragon 800 and has a built-in printer plus Smart Card, magstripe, and barcode support.

This has been especially true in recent years as the product category has migrated from Windows Mobile and CE (and to a lesser extent plain Linux) to Android. In the past, handhelds, which are often available in commercial, as well as similar, but more robust military models, have trailed the current smartphone technology by several years. Yet, we’re seeing and more Android handhelds that rival high end smartphones, such as Arbor’s quad-core, 5.5-inch Gladius 5. Read more

Leftovers: KDE Software

  • PyKDE Future: Seeking a New Maintainer
    For anyone who has been paying any attention of PyKDE5 over the last year or so, it is no secret that development and maintenance has been at a standstill. I've been very busy with a family and small children, and that eats time like you wouldn't believe. (Unit number 2 is almost 6 months now, healthy and happy I can report.) But another important factor is that my interests have shifted towards web related technologies over the last few years.
