Creating User Interfaces With Plasma

Want to hack up a Plasmoid in your spare time? If so, this tutorial is for you! It walks through the relevant bits of libplasma, which is used to render components in the KDE4 desktop workspace as well as applications such as Amarok 2, covering DataEngines, Applets and Plasmoid packages.

Using either C++ or JavaScript, attendees will walk out having made their first gorgeous Plasma add-on with a fully scalable interface using SVG graphics and data provisioned from the network. The end result will work seamlessly on the desktop, in panels and even in a media center presentation.

Suitable for either the hard-core C/C++ developer or the casual web developer who'd like to take their skills to the desktop, this tutorial exposes you to one of the more interesting new technologies in the free software desktop arena.
