    Arrow Announcing Ubuntu Developer Week

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Developer Week! We will have one week of action-packed sessions from Jan 25th 2010 to Jan 29th 2010!

    Ubuntu Developer Week is a series of online workshops where you can:

    • learn about different packaging techniques
    • find out more about different development teams
    • check out the efforts of the world-wide Development Community
    • participate in open Q&A sessions with Ubuntu developers
      much more…
    • All sessions will happen on IRC, and the best way to join is to use Lernid. (There are other ways too. )


    If you’re not comfortable yet asking all your questions in English, we will have a couple of people helping to translate your questions and translating back the answers. Have a look at the Ubuntu Developer Week page to see how it works.

    Like the sound of it? DIGG IT!

    Sounds like a great learning opportunity. Especially since the time is right, 7am - Noon, West Coast Time.

    I also like the Lernid to join in.

    I'll have to mark my calendar.

    Note that the add-apt steps in the lernid page will not work because there is no lucid repo and I had to manually edit the lernid source list to change "lucid" to "karmic" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    15 min to go! I actually upgraded my slow 512 kbps connection to 8 mbps at considerable expense for this week's classrooms

    Re: Announcing Ubuntu Developer Week

    Inspired by the first couple of sessions by Daniel (dholbach) I went ahead and:

    1. Visited my nearly 5 year old launchpad account gathering dust.
    2. Signed the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.
    3. Created a PPA called "kernels" here: https://launchpad.net/~vishalrao/+archive/kernels
    4. Uploaded patched kernel source package to fix this SSD issue: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1364671

    Still have some noob issues - need to fix a few things - also test it on my own machine to verify it works or not - once its actually built

    Many thanks to the Ubuntu folks who always take the time to run these classrooms!
