Live from #Akademy2019: Marco Martin and Bhushan Shah tell us about how KDE is also making inroads on embedded devices.
It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.
If you are wondering what we are currently working on:
* The MIX group chat backend is almost finished and is currently being tested with ejabberd
* A QR-Code scanner is being integrated to allow easy logins and sharing of OMEMO keys later
* pep, the dependency of OMEMO is being implemented (about 50% finished)
