The talk involves my journey as a SoK student in 2012 where I worked with KDE under KDE-educational game pairs, then as a Google Summer of Code student in 2013 with plasma team, emerging as a Google Code In 2013 mentor as well as administrator of Season of KDE 2014 as well as Google Code In 2014 for KDE organization. The talk also involves the changes in plasma so far from plasma 1 to plasma 5, how the code quality has improved with the upcoming plasma development and how to get involved with open source development.

* Let us QMLify the code : Journey from SoK 2012 to GSoC 2013 to GCI 2013

QML (Qt Meta Language or Qt Modeling Language) is a JavaScript-based, declarative language for designing user interface–centric applications. QML elements can be augmented by standard JavaScript both inline and via included .js files. I will be presenting why QML is gaining popularity over the purely Qt codebase,what is QML, how to get involved with it, and its future in the open source world. A great advantage in porting the code to QML from Qt is that it reduces the code maintenance effort for the communities like KDE. The plasmoids written in QML will have considerably less code as QML allows the creation of fluid UIs in a powerful declarative way.
