I would like to share how and who all inspired/motivated me to contribute to KDE. I would like to mention how I took up a small task and went further. There would also be a 2-3 bug squashing session or a feature addition section on Plasma-mediacenter. Which would help students to know how a problem can be tracked down and would help them to get off the fear from real world problems.
A laptop with plasma-mediacenter installed from git. Instructions at http://sinny.in/node/25 and http://sujithh.info/2013/12/plasma-media-center-on-opensuse-13-1
