Interview with KMail Developer Thomas McGuire

Interviews

Welcome back again to the KDE Interview series. Today we feature Thomas McGuire, the KMail maintainer.

When and how did you get in contact with the KDE community?

I started programming by creating small games for Windows. One of them was using the SDL library, which is cross platform. I was curious to see if my game would work on Linux, so I installed SuSE to compile it there. The desktop happened to be KDE software, and I stayed with Linux and KDE applications since then.

In which part of the KDE community and in what development area(s) are you involved?

I mainly focus on KMail and KDEPIM. Occasionally I also commit something to kdelibs, when it is relevant for Kmail.

How did you become KMail maintainer?
