Next UDS: 11-13 March 2014

My apologies for the delay in announcing the next Ubuntu Developer Summit. The last few months have been somewhat hectic and we wanted to wait for some confirmed conference/sprint dates across Ubuntu Engineering and cross-check those with our release schedule before committing to final dates so we can ensure as many people are there as possible.

I can now confirm that our next Ubuntu Developer Summit will take place from Tues 11th March 2014 – Thurs 13th March 2014. I wanted to let you all know ASAP so you can get it in your calendars. summit.ubuntu.com is updated and ready to start having sessions added or proposed (http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1403/).

This next UDS will look and feel much like the last one; the same tracks and format. The feedback we have received from the last UDS suggests that the changes we made were well received. As ever, your feedback is always welcome.

We would like to ask everyone to get their sessions scheduled by Fri 21st Feb 2014; this gives potential attendees time to coordinate time away from work to join the sessions.

If you want to have a session at UDS, please see http://uds.ubuntu.com/getinvolved/propose-a-session/ for how to propose it. As usual, feel free to ask for help from myself or Michael Hall, David Planella, or Daniel Holbach.
