Then then next talk was from me on “Packaging your software” where I explained the need of whatever these students are writing the software how it can be helpful to them by packaging it. By packaging their software they can get more users, contributors to their project as it becomes widely available otherwise just writing software with them, no one will know how it can be helpful to others.

Then Varun Joshi talked about how to begin with contributing to KDE project. He explained version control, build system, how to use git commands with KDE sources. We then break for lunch which was also arranged in the guest house for speakers.

After lunch I attended a very nice talk by Bruno Coudoin on “GCompris goes Qt Quick”. Bruno explained about Gcompris software development, what problems he faced with its Gtk port and why need has been developed to port it into Qt. The Gcompris Qt port is a full rewrite in QML with Cmake build system, some parts copied from Gtk port. Sagar showed us Gcompris demo.

Next talk was on “Hands on PMC and My SoK Experience” by Aditya Dev Sharma where he explained about Plasma Media Center and his journey for becoming KDE contributor. This was the last talk of first day.

We then took some break and moved to evening workshops. There happened 2 parallel workshops. One on “How to use Git” and another was on “Qt programming”. Both workshop were full of students. Labs were houseful. I participated in Git workshop where we group of few people helped students in learning and executing basic git commands. Students were so excited to learn more about git but college need to close the lab rooms as we approached towards closing time.
