||KDE - Lessons Learned
|| I will provide notes on the way the KDE project functions,
organization, the core values and lessons to be learned for other
that use the bazaar model of development.
This will be valuable for people who wish to be involved with free
software development, or wish to understand the thought and motivation
behind people who are willing to devote huge amounts of their time to
a cause like a UNIX desktop.
|| These are a few of the areas I will cover:
The common values and goals of KDE developers
The successes and failures of KDE team decisions
Development and release model of KDE
PR, motivation and corporate involvement
|| Sirtaj has been involved with KDE development since the very
early days of the project and has had ample time to watch the project
grow and mature over the years. Until recently he was representative
for KDE in Australia.
Sirtaj is a professional programmer and has a keen interest in the
management and operation of free software projects.
