Hello Planet KDE!

Hello all KDE users out there! If nothing got borked in the process this blog post should be aggregated in the Planet KDE feed :)

Obviously, this is my first post, and that warrants some introduction to any new readers out there.

My name is Dion Moult, I am a KDE-user (running on my favourite flavour Gentoo) and have joined Hans Chen in his path to become a KDE developer. My posts would document my progress and should be interesting as we do come from very different backgrounds. I actually described a bit about myself in my first post about “The Road to KDE Devland Moult Edition #0” – so I don’t see any benefit of repeating myself here.

The posts that appear here will be manually filtered from my blog posts with the tag “planetkde” – this means that you will not benefit from the vibrant and unpredictable publications on the full monty of my blog, but this should still add to the community that KDE has managed to create – something unquantifiable relative to “lines of code”.

In case you bothered to click that link to my first road-to-kde-devland post, you would know that I do graphic design too – and since nobody likes walls of text, here is a blue-ish wallpaper dedicated to KDE (not really, it was a design I had started on then stopped because I didn’t like it) and of course, it’s made with GIMP (sorry haven’t tried Krita yet):


In a nutshell: “hello” (I really should apply for law school or something)

Dion Moult

I've been developing software for well over 10 years, work as an architect (not the computer kind, the regular sort), and am classically trained as a pianist. I try to do the right thing when I get the chance in my field, such as through contributing to open-source communities and promoting sustainable living.

  1. hey, great to see you on the planet. Now I can be sure I will not miss a post about the Road to KDE Development. Welcome!

  2. Nikhil: hey :) I practice a “update my system” every two weeks, so that means this weekend I should be livin’ the Caizen way of life.

    However since I use snapshots my current version probably isn’t that far off (or as far off as two weeks can make it in terms of development)

    Hello again Hans and hope you’ll find my posts interesting Andrej!

  3. Well either you are a KDE developer, or in my case aspire to become one and actually do something about it. Then you just apply by filing a bug, the details of which are listed on the Planet KDE website.

  4. Do you use Firefox? It has orange rss icon in location bar and then you hover over it, it shows “Page has no feeds”. Can you fix that also? ;-)
