Get ready for Ubuntu Developer Week

Ubuntu Developer WeekGo check your calendar… if you have no concrete plans for the time from Monday 28th February until Friday 4th March yet, make sure you add a note in your calendar. It’s Ubuntu Developer Week again.

If you haven’t been to an Ubuntu Developer Week yet, no problem. This is how it works: it is a week full of one-hour sessions on IRC, where various topics around Ubuntu development are presented, sometimes in the form of talks, sometimes in the form of seminars, where instructions for hands-on training are given over IRC. It all happens in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net.

As always we have a great line-up of speakers and sessions, here’s a few examples of what we are going to talk about:

  • Getting Started with Ubuntu Development, how to use Ubuntu Distributed Development, how to get changes into Ubuntu, how to make changes in stable releases, how to collaborate with Debian, getting new apps into Ubuntu, …
  • Rocking with Unity: fixing bitesize bugs in Unity, how to write compiz plugins, rocking out with libunity, …
  • Lots of development goodness: Ubuntu One App Programme, hooking in Ubuntu translations, writing IRC bots, using Zeitgeist, what’s new in ubuntu-dev-tools, project lightning talks, how to use TestDrive …
  • Get up to speed on what’s new in Ubuntu natty: Unity 2D, Q&A with Ubuntu Engineering Director, ARM and OMAP4, …
  • Lots of other good stuff: helping out the LoCo Directory, hacking with Django, how to get better bug reports, boto EC2 Cloud API, using Launchpad’s Daily Builds, …

This is going to be very awesome. If you’re interested in Ubuntu Development, make sure you are there. (If you can’t make it, we’ll publish logs afterwards.)
