> Is it possible to contribute to KDE even using python?
Of course it's possible to contribute; there are KDE apps written in
Python using PyQt and PyKDE (e.g. the Mahjongg game Kajongg, or
However, you might run into problems when your task includes work on
libraries and existing applications. All KDE libraries and most apps
are written in C++. This realistically limits your choice of tasks to
either creating a new completely Python-based application, or hacking
on an existing Python application.
That is, unless you invest time to learn C++. This language is indeed
quite complex and has its "scary" places, but Qt and KDE advocate a
C++ coding style that avoids many of these shallows. It also helps
that you are already comfortable in Python and thus know concepts like
object-oriented programming already.
