    Announcing Ubuntu App Developer Week!

    Announcing Ubuntu App Developer Week!

    It’s that time again! Ubuntu Opportunistic Developer Week, happening online between September 27th through October 1st, 2010.

    “What is Ubuntu App Developer Week?”

    Ubuntu App Developer Week is a week of sessions aimed at enabling and inspiring developers to write applications that scratch their itches. Our goal is to give all attendees a taste of the wide variety of tools on the Ubuntu platform that can be used to create awesome applications, and to showcase some applications that have been created and explain how they were put together.

    “When is Ubuntu App Developer Week?”

    Ubuntu App Developer Week is scheduled for Monday, September 27th through Friday, October 1st, 2010.

    “Where will Ubuntu App Developer Week take place?”

    Ubuntu App Developer Week will take place in #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat on

    Still undecided? Here is how Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager described this event last cycle:

    The week will be just like our previous online learning events such as Ubuntu Developer Week and Ubuntu Open Week, but instead providing a week jam packed with awesome sessions about writing applications that scratch your itch, and predominantly focusing on Python tools and frameworks, Bazaar, Launchpad and infrastructure. The goal for the week is give attendees a head start on a given technology useful for applications.

    Like the other weeks this cycle, Lernid is being used and all session leaders are being encouraged to create slides for their sessions . As each session is confirmed it will appear in Lernid and on the wiki page.

    Just like the other Ubuntu Weeks we are looking for volunteers! So what are you waiting for? If you feel you could give a tutorial about a given Python module or associated technology (e.g. Glade, Launchpad, Bazaar etc), please drop Jono or myself an email at jono AT ubuntu DOT com or akgraner AT ubuntu DOT com and we will work with you to get everything scheduled.

    Thanks in advance to all you session leaders that I know are waiting to volunteer. We’re looking forward to another awesome Ubuntu Week and seeing what itches get scratched during this Ubuntu App Developer Week!

    I've browsed the IRC transcripts of previous sessions in previous years. What I'd like to see covered, and I don't think it has so far, is taking a source package with a minor niggle, patching it, uploading the new package to my PPA, and installing it from there back onto my systems with a normal apt-get(1). IOW, fixing bugs or adding enhancements for, initially, just myself.
