Fast Track Talk Goals


Kai Uwe Broulik


In this talk I am going to show you how over the course of just a few evenings I managed to feed live data from my solar installation into Plasma’s System Monitor.

How cool is that? You can have both CPU load and photovoltaic energy production side-by-side!

It’s a perfect example of how simple it is for a project hosted outside of KDE to make use of their libraries and how versatile and high-quality they are.

While this project is nowhere near a fully integrated Smart Home solution, it’s here to serve as an inspiration for the KDE Community of what lies out there beyond localhost.


Kai Uwe has been a KDE contributor for more than ten years and is the creator of unparalleled tech, such as Plasma Browser Integration.
