Unity developers will be advising me best on how to answer your questions and we can continue to develop the answers based on feedback. If you’ve already asked then we’ll keep working on our answers to be better.
(Note: Ask Ubuntu is about asking questions and getting answers, so if you’re going to ask a question make sure you read the guidelines. Argumentative and offtopic questions will be moderated.)
Ralph mentions some of the stats from askubuntu.com. It’s been hectic trying to keep up with the grow, especially as the stack method can be confusing at first. Now that we’re out of beta I can go over some of the tools I’ve been using to help best make use of the site.
The first is George Edison’s StackApplet, a nice appindicator-based reputation tracker with notify-osd support, so that your growing reputation can motivate you throughout the day:
And for those of us on the road there’s DroidStack:
Along with 10.10 here comes askubuntu.com. We’ve had a great beta where many experienced people participated and we had a nice standard of high quality answers and low noise. We’re experiencing a flood of new users and questions, so feel free to help out.
Remember people love to vote on answers with screenshots and easy to use instructions. Go get em!
We’ve got some great sessions lined up. LoCo questions with Laura, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and yes, the return of Ubuntu Studio to Open Week. As usual you can Ask Mark Shuttleworth about Ubuntu, or maybe you’d dig an Inkscape lesson from Martin Owens.
Ahmed and Dustin will be showing you how to run your first Ubuntu Server in the cloud and how to deploy your applications right on there. We’ve got the alphabet soup handled, with i18n sessions from David Planella and a11y with Charlie Kravetz. duanedesign will be doing a tutorial on screencasting, and don’t miss Belinda Lopez’s education session.
If that’s not enough we’ve got sessions on how to get started, finding your place in Ubuntu, how to find help, and … whew … ALL THAT AND MORE.
So come join us on #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat next week. And don’t forget to bring a towel.
