Yes, of course. conf.kde.in is going to be a holistic event. FOSS is equally about documentation, artwork and reaching a wider audience via localisation. We plan to have talks and workshops which deal with non-coding topics like localisation, design, artwork, documentation, community and more.
Yes. We believe that teachers are one of the most important attendees we can have for this event. Teachers are the one who spread the knowledge to countless students.
