Trolltech Sponsors Major KDE Contributor

Filed under
KDE

Trolltech, makers of the Qt application development framework used by KDE and the Qtopia application development platform for embedded Linux devices, is proud to announce their full-time sponsorship of KDE developer Aaron Seigo. This arrangement will enable Aaron to devote his full time and attention to KDE software projects such as Plasma, which aims to reshape the desktop, as well as to engage in greater Open Source community participation and support.

"It's amazing to be given the opportunity to concentrate on KDE, especially with KDE4 approaching," said Aaron Seigo, "This certainly underlines Trolltech's commitment to the Open Source community, and I really couldn't ask for a better group of people to have as a partner for such a project."

Matthias Ettrich, VP of Engineering at Trolltech and KDE's Founder, added, "KDE is more than just a showcase for Trolltech. It brings Linux to the desktop, and thus it is a major day-to-day working environment at Trolltech. Aaron is a long-term and well-known KDE contributor. He has a vision, he does great work, and he can become a figure that leads the KDE desktop experience to a higher level. I'm happy that we can help him work on KDE full-time."

Fluxday: A no-fuss open source productivity tracker

It would have been easier if we already had an open source platform we could build on. Although we did manage to build it quickly without disrupting our main projects, other companies might find it easier to adopt an existing platform rather than allocate extra time towards building an in-house productivity management application. For that reason, we've made Fluxday an open source project. Read more
