Konqi on promotional work!

What does the Promo team do?

The KDE Promo team works on spreading the good word about the KDE Community, its software, projects, and events. We do that by attending conferences and trade fairs, where we give talks about the latest KDE technologies, show our software to visitors in live demos, and give out some sweet KDE swag.

We also write news articles, release announcements, social media updates, and help with producing visuals, videos, and written content for community websites.

We are in the process of updating the Promo team pages on this wiki to make things easier to find. It's possible that you will see some broken links or outdated content. If that happens, please let us know so we can fix it.

To understand better what we do, take a look at Promo's Long Term Goals.
