Third Google CodeIn Screencast - Snippets (December 12, 2010)

Hey everyone,

the third screencast for KDevelop is in:

It shows the advanced snippets support in KDevelop, see also: Snippets in KDevelop & Kate.

In an unrelated note: I’ll do a talk at the Computer Science faculty of the FU Berlin tomorrow, see:

“Wie und warum man sich als Open Source Entwickler/in engagieren sollte”

Viele Studenten könnten gute Programmierer sein, aber lassen Ihr Talent ungenutzt oder stecken es in private (kleinst) Projekte und One-Man-Vaporware. Würden sie sich hingegen in bestehenden Open Source Projekten engagieren, würde ihr Lieblingsprojekt nicht nur ein Stück besser werden, sondern sie selbst gewännen dabei eine Menge. Was ein paar dieser Vorteile sind, und wie man überhaupt damit anfängt sich in einem großen Projekt zu beteiligen, möchte ich am Beispiel von KDE zeigen und hoffe, dass dadurch ein paar mehr von euch aktiv in einem FOSS Projekt mitarbeiten werden.

Second Google CodeIn Screencast: Advanced C++ Support in KDevelop 4 (December 07, 2010)

Hey all,

just a quick note: The second google code-in task for KDevelop got completed, this time by Furkan Üzümcü. He shows off some features in KDevelop 4 that together make up the advanced C++ support you can find in it. Take a look at it:

Thanks to Furkan and Google for doing this.

Google Code In: First KDevelop Documentation Screencast! (November 27, 2010)

Woha, back when Lydia announced Google Code In and asked me whether I’d like to mentor some KDevelop projects, I wasn’t so sure this was a good thing. But then I saw that documentation could be requested from the students, and well… KDevelop 4 has no real documentation (except this) - why shouldn’t I try it?

So I put a few “screencast workflow XYZ” tasks into Google’s Melange Web Interface (which btw. sucks so much it’s incredible) and forgot about it. I didn’t really think there would be school students being interested in KDevelop, esp. not in writing documentation or doing a screencast. But thankfully I was proven wrong, and in all levels. Please behold, the first documentation screencast for KDevelop, showing you how to get started with a project, setting up a launch configuration, and doing some basic debugging:

I’m amazed by the quality of that video, very well done Geoffry and thanks already to Google for the Code In. Lets hope more students will provide me with such good work :) And I hope this helps some users to get started with KDevelop 4.
