On Wednesday I’m going to give this workshop WHAT: Creating snaps with snapcraft MAR 0.017 - Wednesday, 7th September 10:00 - 12:00 So if you are interested in learning how to publish software easily and directly to users, this might be just for you.

Berlin

Earlier today I went to a goodbye party of a friend who’s going to Australia for a few months. Great things that happened: Party was outdoors, a few DJs played, great atmosphere, 100+ people at peak times Some of my awesome office mates were there, my sister too The police showed up and instead of shutting the party down, they told us where it was “OK” to have the party We moved all the equipment, the generator, drinks and everything else to the new place, which was nearby, everybody helped I played a 4 hour Drum’n’Bass set, which I (and others) were very happy with, they even collected money for the DJ - glad it was dark, so nobody could see if I was blushing I watched the sunrise by the riverside while the party was still going on I drove home on my bicycle A few guys stopped me to take a picture of them and as a thanks offered me their last beer Oh how I love this city!...

Koala Parties!

I just had another look at the list of Ubuntu 9.10 Relase Parties and it’s AMAZING. There’s tons of parties all around the globe and they all are truly deserved celebrations of all the hard work that thousands of people put into Ubuntu and Open Source more generally. Make sure you add your party to the map. In Berlin we’ll celebrate on Saturday in our favourite hacker-space location: c-base. Caspar already spilled the beans about it: Berliner Fenster, heroes of Berlinian metro TV make sure Ubuntu and our party get a mention:...

Ubuntu Global Jam

I didn’t see much news about the Ubuntu Global Jam in the last time and in the Berlin team, we took a bit of a break from regular jams. In a few days the Ubuntu Berlin team is likely to meet again and talk about how we can best accomodate all kind of people who want to work on Ubuntu directly, becaues that’s essentially what an Ubuntu Jam is: working directly on Ubuntu, with a lot of local people, having lots of fun....

It's Ubuntu 9.04 Release Day!

Ubuntu 9.04 will be out real soon now and it’s a fantastic release. It’s the tenth time the Ubuntu community pushes out a release and having used every single one of them the thought that what you’re downloading and installing is the combined work of dozens of thousands of Open Source contributors doesn’t cease to amaze me. My overall feeling of the Jaunty cycle is that we as the big Ubuntu Development team have matured a lot....
