The groups have been in the wild for a week now and we are pleased to see so many users poking around and creating or joining groups. I’d say the groups landing page looks well populated already. That’s great! Marius promised some background information about how it came to be in his last blog [developer.qt.nokia.com], so here it is.
The previously grayed out “GROUPS” on the top menu is now active. Hiding behind that link is the main groups and people page where we list groups and most recently active members. We are setting up the first few groups now, together with the moderators. Alexandra will get back to why we have made a Groups feature and what we hope it will be used for.
My head is still spinning from all the weeding through wiki pages and staring at foreign languages, some of which I can’t even read. Good news for all who have contributed something to this huge list [developer.qt.nokia.com] – I think I am done with it. Whew. I was quite busy for a while…
I have been officially appointed holiday fairy (or rather, Nisse) for 2010. Yay! Do you want to be on my list for gadgets? Easy. Here’s the deal. Starting from today, we will give a brand new C7 to the top three contributors to the Qt Developer Network every Monday. Yes, three devices each week.
Up here we’re all tired after an intense conference season. We had two great Qt Developer Days and then there was the MeeGo conference, SEE and all sorts of smaller events that I cannot remember just now. Having all this behind us, it’s time to start thinking about the next year. You might be surprised, but planning for DevDays starts almost a year in advance. This is the time for you to voice your opinion. I would love to hear from you about your experiences with conferences you’ve attended – Qt related or not.
The Qt Developer Network is growing fast and the amount of activity is very encouraging. We want to continue our quest in making this an awesome place for Qt developers. A lot of time and love goes into the site but we’re still only a team of three and even Trolls need sleep. Or vacation. Uh huh… To make it short: It’s time for us to get new people on board. We’re hiring.
It’s crazy busy here these days. Marius and Gurudutt are in Stavanger to do a sprint with the developers from Trollweb working on our various web sites. There are fixes, new features and general improvements all over the place. Marius will update you on that in the coming days. I have disappeared mostly into preparations for this year’s Qt Developer Days [qt.nokia.com] in Munich and San Francisco. It’s going to be BIG! Good news is that I was able to invite the top 3 contributors from the Qt Developer Network.
Today we closed* the poll that was part of our Qt Developer Days T-Shirt Challenge and we have a winner.
Content is king, they say. It is especially true for us who want to make Qt developers lives easier.
I have the strong suspicion that some might have been wondering about the ongoing silence of the team here. Guess what – we were on holidays. But now we’re back and I have some news for you!
We have a new flat mate – Qt Quarterly took residence in our lovely premises. The latest edition moved from the old site over to the Qt Developer Network.
