Attended Conf KDE India 2014

Last weekend I attended KDE India Conference at DAIICT, Gandhinagar. Thanks to Pradeepto for selecting my talk. It was quite exciting for me as it was not only my first KDE Conference but I was also delivering a talk there.


It was a thrilling experience to be around fellow open-source enthusiasts for a change. Thanks to the sponsors  Digia and VCreate Logic for making this event possible. Not to forget the awesome DAIICT organizers/volunteers Yash, Yashwant, Suchit and Shaleen for being so hospitable.

The event kicked of by a Qt Workshop carried out by Prashant Udupa. The students started asking many questions to speakers on the first day itself which showed how enthusiastic they were to learn Qt and were willing to contribute to KDE.


The following two days had many interesting talks. Jos spoke about KDE’s history and about its future which was quite interesting as most of the students were new to KDE. Kévin Ottens gave an awesome talk on C++11 which was very educative for the students who already had a working knowledge of C++. 

Thanks to fellow speakers Sinny, Samikshan, Chandan, Shubham […so many to name :D ] for making me feel so comfortable at my first KDE conf. I enjoyed speaking on such a huge platform…

Here is the traditional KDE Conf style group photo from the event…
