The Promo team in KDE attends trade fairs and conferences, informing visitors using a booth and giving talks. We also write news articles, work on release announcements and other content for our web pages.
We are in the process of updating the Promo team pages on this wiki, so that things are easier to find. Therefore you will see some new pages immediately below, but old ones that have not yet been moved follow afterwards
How you can join our team
Joining the team is easy! Just contact us and let us know what you're interested in helping with. The best way to get in touch is by joining our mailing list and/or emailing us at [email protected]. The three most common ways to help include:
- Following KDE on social media – This is the easiest way to contribute to KDE Promo. Just follow our social media accounts and start sharing the content we post! You can help us reach a new and wider audience by translating our posts into different languages spoken in your community. Of course, you can also craft your own posts about our software and community.
- Proposing your own idea – See an opportunity to spread KDE that we haven't thought of? Want to get help with making it happen? Let us know by contacting us. We can provide feedback and potentially help you out along the way.
- Representing KDE at an event – We are always in need of people to represent KDE at conferences, local meetings, etc. All you need is a passion for using KDE and the right materials. You provide the passion, we'll provide the rest! Check out this section to download all the material you'll need to give a lecture or host a booth at an event.
Last but not least, find more tasks and things you can do as a new Promo team member!
There are usually many things going on within the Promo team. The wiki has become our home for keeping track of things and storing relevant information. Everything that doesn't fit into one of the 3 activities listed above can be found in one of the following areas:
- Dot - information by and for dot editors (dot is our news site on dot.kde.org)
- Communication guidance – Read helpful tips on articulating our software brands, describing our underlying technologies, engaging the press, and more.
- Communication channels – Obtain information about the tools such as the Dot, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc, which we use to spread news of KDE.
- Release information – Learn what's new in the latest release and how you can show it off to the world.
- Material – Find artworks and other promotional material.
- Scratchpad – A home for miscellaneous “stuff” that doesn't have a real home yet but needed to be written down somewhere
- Release Announcement Guidelines – Information about how a release announcement should look
- KDE Promo Workboard - Information about upcoming and ongoing tasks for the Promo team.
