We are proud to announce the creation of Live Blue KDE working group: a Brazilian effort to promote, develop, document, and translate KDE-related free and open source software. The Live Blue group comes from the work of Sandro Andrade and Tomaz Canabrava which have been promoting the Qt/KDE experience in Brazilian open source meetings, such as FISL – International Forum on Free Software and Latinoware – Latin-American Conference on Free Software. In spite of meaningful promotion and distribution work done by Brazilian open source community we have noticed a still modest contribution to developing activities. Live Blue aims to support the first steps of new developers towards KDE world by lecturing introductory C++/Qt/KDE short courses, by investigating potential new KDE projects, and by helping to maintain already existing projects. Although we are focused on coding activities, efforts related to documentation, translation, testing, art, and promotion are quite welcome.
Live Blue members live in Salvador, a very pleasant city and capital of Bahia state in northeast Brazil. We hope our always shining sun and marvellous beaches contribute a lot to the KDE hacking way of live.
