Ubuntu Developer Week: Day 5

And the last day of Ubuntu Developer Week is over now too. It’s a shame, but when can we do… watch out for the next one in half a year. In the meantime, there’s going to be a bunch of Packaging Training sessions as well, and Ubuntu Open Week, so it’s not like you’ll be twiddling thumbs the whole time.

Let’s re-cap Day 5:

  • 16:00 – 18:00 UTC: Django And You (mhall119): First up was Michael Hall, who had booked a double session about Django goodness and brings in quite a bit of experience on the topic. He did a great job explaining the concepts behind Django, how to set up a basic project, lots of tips and tricks and what I liked best: he plugged the LoCo Directory a couple of times. Hope you’ll get interested and see how great Django is and how much fun projects like the Loco Directory are.
  • 18:00 – 19:00 UTC: Adopt-An-Upstream (jcastro): Jorge was the best possible person to talk about one of the most awesome projects we have in the Ubuntu landscape: the essence of Adopt-An-Upstream is to be a tie between the Ubuntu project and others projects: you take on real responsibility by sharing information, by helping others making informed decisions and improve Ubuntu in a very real sense. Great session!
  • 19:00 – 20:00 UTC: How To Help With Edubuntu (highvoltage): I’m glad we had Jonathan Carther with us who talked about Edubuntu, how it’s set up, how the team works and what the plans for the future are. Great!
  • 20:00 – 21:00 UTC: Me, myself and QA (warp10, gaspa): Last sesion of the day and of whole UDW was about how to help with Quality Assurance in Ubuntu: basically making packages rock harder. Easy tasks, how to find them, what various terms like NBS mean, was all part of the session. Thanks a lot to the Ubuntu Italian Mafia Famiglia (no that name is not my invention :-)).

Again I’d like to thank everybody for helping out with making Ubuntu Developer Week rock as hard as it did. 350+ attendees, 25 sessions, lots of covered topics and everything happened in a very seamless fashion. Awesome. Thanks again!
