Notes

  • A list of things of what is going on
    • Conferences, who is going to what, whats in the area
  • We're somehow not reaching other people
    • Only four developers came to Akademy 2012.
    • There are more, but we can't find them.
    • Two Akronites came to the 4.5 release party, not counting tdfischer
  • Why is it popular in europe?
    • Parties in bars? Probably not. We should have 100 by now.
  • At Linux Fests, people talk about Linux. We should be a grassroots movement by going to all the fests (all of them) and finding people.
  • Fests/Conventions
    • LinuxCon - We have a booth every year!
    • Oscon - Maybe have a BoF?

What are we trying to do?

Grow KDE in the USA

  • Impossible!?
  • Outreach, yes. Talking to people, yes.
    • Linux Action Show
  • No way to gauge involvement success
  • "If you want to do amazing stuff with this amazing organization, KDE is the place for you."
  • Somehow encourage people to get involved after we meet them at the conventions.
  • Come to our parties. Srsly.
  • Have a sign up. Do you use KDE? Do you know C++? "What better place could you volunteer than KDE?!"
  • LUGS??? (answer: yes.)
  • "Its not a puzzle what we're trying to do. We want users, developers, and companies who are using KDE and are open to something about it."
    • We need goals for this ^
    • Developers: Want to make a difference in your life? Know about bugfixes or C++? DO YOU LIKE TO PARTY AND/OR ROCK? Contribute to KDE.
