KDE TeaTime (KTT) is a new video podcast ran by a bunch of KDE developers who at some point decided to make their private ramblings and discussions in the open just like the software they develop.
The content of KTT is going to be different each time but always related to KDE. Each time we set a main topic and we'll be discussing live about all things around it, so you can expect rants, personal feelings, ideas not published anywhere and general crapiness :) Please note that our expressed opinions are not always necessarily the opinions of the KDE community and/or KDE e.V. We're still learning how to do the stuff properly, but in the near future once we get the hang of it, we want to have some kind of live interaction with listeners, inviting guests for interviews, showing cool stuff from our desktop and so on.
Right now we're using Google Hangouts for KTT. We decided for that because Hangouts can be streamed live on YouTube, so everyone can watch it live without needing anything special (besides Flash, but hey, everyone watches YouTube) and right after the Hangout is finished, it is automatically uploaded to the YouTube channel. In other words - we can focus purely on the podcast and not be bothered with setting up our own (streaming) software, saving the stream, uploading to YouTube etc. Hangouts get us all this for free.
We chose the format to be around 25 minutes for one episode and we want to do one episode per week. We'll be announcing the streaming times on our social media plethora - Google+, Facebook page, Twitter, Identi.ca or YouTube. Like us, follow us, give us comments, ideas, constructive criticism and cookies. If there will be big enough desire, we might consider providing the podcast as mp3s as well.
The first episode was already recorded last week, the topic was 3rd party KDE apps and you can watch it on YouTube or down below.
Enjoy and spread the word :)
