Project: Single-canvas presentation mode in Calligra Stage

Links :

Project Proposal


GSoC Project: Single Canvas presentation mode in Calligra Stage

Presentations, the (new) Stage way (With links to screenshots, video with a demo of the feature)

Sample presentation (used for my project presentation at the Desktop Summit)

GSoC for me, was awesome because...

With this project I started my contribution to open source software that I use and like. A summer put to good use, implemented a feature I like, worked with great developers, earned for the first time, attended the Desktop Summit in Berlin and now feel part of the awesome KDE community - what more to ask for!

One thing I learnt

Believe in yourself and ask when you are not sure. They are awesome people out there, who started just like you.
