Always something new...
What do Kinshasa, Omsk, Paris, Mexico City, Eugene, Denver, Tempe, Catonsville, Fairfax, Dania Beach, San Francisco and various places on the internet have in common?
What’s great about the event is that there are just two basic aims:
- do something with Ubuntu
- get together and have fun!
What I also like a lot is that there’s always something new to do. Here are just 3 quick examples of that:
App Development Schools
We have put quite a bit of work into putting training materials together, now, you can take them out to your team and start writing Ubuntu apps easily.
As one tech news article said “Robots embrace Ubuntu as it invades the internet of things". Ubuntu’s newest foray, making it possible to bring a stable and secure OS to small devices where you can focus on apps and functionality, is attracting a number of folks on the mailing lists (snappy-devel, snappy-app-devel) and elsewhere. Check out the mailing lists and the snappy site to find out more and have a play with it.
Unity8 on Desktop
Convergence is happening and what’s working great on the phone is making its way onto the desktop. You can help making this happen, by installing and testing it. Your feedback will be much appreciated.
