so here it is, my first blog post ever, so my first bigger project, contribution to open-source and Linux desktop ever.

My name is Martin, currently student of Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic, and i am developing new setting module for Plasma Mobile project https://www.plasma-mobile.org/,  module which should be replacement for current KCM network settings.

Reason for replacement is that  current settings simply copied from desktop (https://github.com/KDE/plasma-nm/), which UI are not targeted for mobile environment and together with other issues should be reworked and polished for end-user needs, see https://phabricator.kde.org/T6878 . The module will be part of plasma-settings, https://github.com/KDE/plasma-settings/

This project proposed me Jan Grulich (http://www.jgrulich.cz), developer of NetworkManager and desktop applet used in Fedora. He supports me with  mentorship a introducing to KDE development.

My own fork where i am developing module is on https://github.com/MartinKacej/plasma-nm. I will be glad for your advices and help from end-user viewpoint , since i am mostly struggling on design part.
