Ubuntu Developer Summit for Quantal

The Ubuntu Developer Summit for Quantal Quetzal went from May 7-11th with Ubuntu developers from all over the world - working on dozens of projects - coming to Oakland California to collaborate. In this issue we highlight some posts at the end of the Planet section from community members who have written about it so far.

EA Games and Ubuntu

Electronic Arts, a major American developer, marketer, publisher and distributor of video games, tests the waters by submitting two games to the Ubuntu Software Center. The game titles are "Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances" and "Lord of Ultima" and Jono Bacon notes "Let's not get side-tracked by the fact that these are web games and not native to Ubuntu: EA are dipping their toes in Ubuntu as a channel of opportunity, and let's welcome them with open arms."

LoCo News

UbuConLA 2012 - help needed

Martin Albisetti issues a call for help to fund a UbuConLA (Latin American) and shares a link to the web site set up to gather donations.


Ubuntu 12.04 Release Party

Adnan Quantum of the Bangladesh LoCo team blogs about the Ubuntu 12.04 release party. The event had to be delayed by two weeks due to political unrest in the country, and participation was, unfortunately, hindered by lightning storms in the area. Notwithstanding, those present had a delicious meal, a friendly chat, and generally, a good time.


Launchpad News

Five kinds of branches

Curtis Hovey shares his thoughts on improving the Launchpad branch page. He proposes to make it more informative, and then goes on to discuss at length what he'd like to see presented for different types of branches.


Testing descriptions for bug status and importance

Launchpad introduces a more descriptive way of triaging bugs. The new bug status picker focuses more on the status of the bug than the importance of the bug.


Ubuntu Cloud News

Introducing Project Sputnik: Developer laptop

Dell plans to evaluate the possibility of building a laptop targeted at developers. The primary project goals are to identify and cater to the needs of potential customers, such as integration with Github and OpenStack, and to improve hardware support. Due to its popularity among web developers, Ubuntu 12.04 came up as a natural choice of a pre-installed OS. To gather feedback from the Ubuntu developer, Dell had a representative and a session at the Ubuntu Developers Summit.


Puppet and Juju Sitting in a Tree...

Jorge Castro blogs from the UDS trenches to report on the Juju integration session where Clint Byrum talked about his subordinate Puppet Charm.


The Planet

Pasi Lallinaho: Brainstorm! Contribute!

Xubuntu Project Lead Pasi Lallinaho calls for idea contributions to the roadmap of Xubuntu 12.10. As Quantal is not an LTS, more ambitious proposals are encouraged, along with active contribution.


Dustin Kirkland: Project Sputnik: Developer Focused Dell XPS13

Dustin Kirkland delivers his first impressions on the new developer focused Dell XPS 13. Aside from a lack of proper touchpad driver, he considers the ultrabook to be quite impressive and a real contender to the Macbook Air.


Alan Pope: Why not contribute to Ubuntu Manual

Alan Pope notes that the Ubuntu Manual project is looking for some new contributors, and questions the reasons why people might not be contributing. He mentions a few common reasons and calls for feedback as to how they can help people get involved.


Stuart Langridge: Ubuntu One for Nokia N9

Stuart Langridge, a Nokia N9 user, writes about his work on creating an Ubuntu One application for this platform. Announced is the first version of this app which supports browsing and dowloading your files. He also mentions that he has a long to-do list ahead and he's planning on submitting the app to the Ovi Store.


Jonathan Carter: Edubuntu Preliminary Plans for 12.10

Jonathan Carter shares plans for the development cycle of Edubuntu. These include the installer changes, default applications review, Juju charms for education, and various Desktop and Artwork fixes. There are also projects on the table that reach beyond the regular six month release cycle, such as Edubuntu Server and Edubuntu Tablet.


Summaries from the Ubuntu Developer Summit

The Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) for 12.10, Quantal Quetzal, happened from May 7th through 11th! This UDS was packed full of excitement and energy. Posts about many of the session tracks can be found in a number of posts we've seen on the planet since and during UDS-Q. Below are links from those who took the time to blog about their experience at this UDS.

In The Press

ARM arrives on servers with Calxeda's Ubuntu demo

Calxeda, a server designer from Texas, has demonstrated an ARM based server prototype at the UDS. Running Precise Pangolin with LAMP, node.js and Ruby-on-Rails, it is supposed to "consume much less electricity then similar ones from Intel". Calxeda believes ARM servers may reach as much as 40% of the total Linux server base in just three years.


Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin review

The latest Ubuntu draws praise for its tight cloud integration with Ubuntu One, a more mature Unity desktop and 5-year support commitment, amongst others. With these, the article reports that it proves itself to be an attractive option for consumers and firms who want a proven Linux alternative to proprietary systems.


Project Sputnik: Dell's Ubuntu-based XPS13 laptop for developers

Dell aims at developers with an Ubuntu 12.04 powered XPS13 Ultrabook. The company hopes "to ensure maximum hardware compatibility" and provide tight integration with Github.


Mark Shuttleworth is passionate about Canonical, patents and space

Scott Merrill of TechCrunch interviews Mark Suttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu. The conversation spans from Ubuntu deployment and competition with Red Hat, to open source communities, software patents and outer space.
