At the beginning of March Plasma hacker Aaron Seigo challenged the community to a KDE miniprograms programming contest. The winners have now been determined.
The Aquarium miniprogram came in with first prize.
First runner up was Nikita Melnichenko for his Make Progress! plasmoid that recorded progress for one or more projects. The Creative Genius prize went to the useful and easy-to-use miniprogram. Melnichenko will receive the T-shirt and KDE event invitation.
Second runner up was Manuel Unglaub for his Shortlog plasmoid, a simple notes solution for multiple text formats. The jury appreciated its nifty concept and well-structured yet simple interface. Unglaub earned himself a T-shirt.
Andrew Stromme's Guitar Tuner and Petri DamstÈn's Plasma Dice were just short of the T-shirt.
