Talk (40 min) Past, Present and Future


David Edmundson (KDE)


The Steamdeck is one of the most interesting and excitement big deployments of KDE in recent times.

In this talk I will share how Plasma fits into the Steamdeck and what aspects of KDE made us the right choice for their new userbase. I will then share some of the projects that contractors Blue Systems have been doing for Valve and how the work there benefits not just the Steamdeck but improves the ecosystem for all Plasma users.

Finally we look at what this could mean for KDE on the whole as more vendors gain the same confidence in Plasma.

Description will pad later
A short bio David Edmundson has been hacking on KDE for nearly 15 years and has become one of the lead maintainers of Plasma.
