KDE Russia

This January, an amazing milestone has been passed by the Russian KDE community: our VK group, main local community page, got more than a thousand subscribers!

Globally, that doesn’t sound like much, but that’s really a lot for a local page of a FOSS community!

My participation started more than a year ago, and throughout the year we’ve been covering all major events in community life, helping new users find their ways in FOSS and KDE in particular, inviting everyone to participate and do whatever they can to make the bright future of software freedom closer.

This year we made a friendly Telegram chat and bridged it to an IRC channel (#kde_ru); I developed a bot that publishes news from our page to the chat and delivers them personally. We established a good relationship with local openSUSE and Qt communities.

No doubt, there’s a lot to be done to make our community a brighter, stronger, more welcoming place. But I am proud of what we have achieved and look forward with passion.

If you speak Russian and would like to help spread the word about free software, you are always welcome to join us! 😀
