conf.kde.in was held for the first time in March 2011 at R.V. College of Engineering in Bangalore, India. It was the first large scale KDE event in India. The event introduced Qt & KDE technologies, and encouraged participants to contribute to free and open source software (FOSS) projects. The conference included talks, tutorials, interactive sessions and an extended code sprint. There were about 300 participants. It was a success in terms of the number of people who were introduced to FOSS and to KDE.
KDE Meetup was held in February 2012. Around 380 students from all parts of the country gathered for an inspiring two days of learning and contribution. There were sessions on the basics of Qt, Git and open source contribution. Attendees had access to insights and knowledge from experienced speakers as well. Pradeepto Bhattacharya, organizer of the the first conf.kde.in and current KDE e.V. Board member, said that it was an historical event for KDE.Anticipating conf.kde.in 2014
