I’m incredibly happy to announce the fourth Ubuntu Developer Week (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek)!

You are excited about Ubuntu, always had the feeling you want to „give back“ in one form or the other and you didn’t know how? Ubuntu Developer Week is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved and get a closer look at what’s happening behind the scenes. Make sure you mark the dates from Monday, 31st August 2009 to Friday, 4th September 2009 in your calendar! Just check out the timetable (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek) to learn more about which session is up next.

How this is going to work? Easy!

Just join #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (http://webchat.freenode.net/?nick=openweek.&channels=ubuntu-classroom%2Cubuntu-classroom-chat) and enjoy and participate in the sessions.
Check if you need to prepare for a session (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek/Sessions).
Ask your questions in #ubuntu-classroom-chat, participate.
Learn more about Ubuntu Development.



I’m very proud of the speakers this time. They managed to put together a fantastic assortment of topics, all very much focused on a hands-on experience for you: web development, Launchpad hackery, Debian/Ubuntu packaging, development techniques, etc. etc.

We have awesome speakers who will share their secret of success with you in a fun and interesting way.


You are new to Ubuntu development? No problem, check out our brochure (http://people.canonical.com/~dholbach/Ubuntu_Developer_Week4.pdf).

Sessions are based on what others ( devs ) have to say, not what newbies have to say .. How it comes that "Ubuntu Developer Week is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved" ? What exactly these sessions mean ?

Im going to either be there or want the logs afterwards. :)

I like the list of topics, seems like a lot of good-to-have knowledge.
