Mobile schedule for UDS
The guidebook mobile schedule for UDS-P is now ready, install it here:
And just search for UDS in the application. Then you’ll have the UDS schedule, events, sponsorship information, and maps in your pocket:
The schedule updates every 10 minutes, and there’s a convenient QR code on each schedule page so at UDS itself you’ll be able to just take a shot of one of the scheduling monitors, or from the QR codes we’ll have plastered around the venue.
Official UDS-O Group Photos now available
Sean Sosik-Hamor, our group photographer and IS sysadmin, has published the official UDS-O group photos on his blog, along with the details on the setup and equipment. Enjoy!
Upstream related videos from UDS
Along with the last set, here are more videos from UDS that might be interesting to upstream projects:
Last set of UDS Videos uploaded
The last set of videos from UDS have been posted! This includes my favorite part of UDS, the Lightning Talks. Remember we kick people off after five minutes so they’re kind of high stress. Apparently my crutch word is “ummm”. Aurelien did a Qt Creator demo, but also make sure you see Ryan Paul’s Qt demo, I talk about askubuntu.com with Robert Cartaino, Colin Watson does one on libpipeline. KDE daily builds, and what I call “The Rescue” by Dustin and the rest of the server team.
Along with the lightning talks we have:
Unity Architecture - http://ubuntudevelopers.blip.tv/file/4432282/
Firefox 4 for Natty - http://ubuntudevelopers.blip.tv/file/4431119/
Improving the Sponsorship Queue - http://ubuntudevelopers.blip.tv/file/4414615/
Unity 2D fallback - http://ubuntudevelopers.blip.tv/file/4412246/
Here’s a bunch of summaries from the UDS Proceedings. Sorry they’re not more organized.
UPDATE: As many of you have pointed out, these are raw and in some cases don’t even make sense since they’re pasted in from people furiously typing into gobby documents. They’ll be polished as the week progresses.
UDS Sponsorship application deadline
Just a reminder that the sponsorship application deadline is 8th September if you haven’t already applied! For more information please see this page: http://uds.ubuntu.com/participate/sponsorship/
(There is a bug in the summit system that is telling people that the deadline is March 26, this is incorrect!)
Calculators. You need them.
On the Friday of the Ubuntu Developer Summit we do 5 minute lightning talks. Evan Martin from Chromium did a bit on Speed, and why they’re so obsessed with it.
To prove his point he compared Chromium’s launch time vs. gcalctool. Yes, the web browser was launching faster than the calculator.
I am not sure if Evan knew it or not, but Robert Ancell (one of the gcalctool guys!) was in the audience. And not content with failure, he went and fixed it. The ball is in your court now Chromium!
(Note: I am not advocating any kind of Calculator acid test or Calcspider speed test, before anyone gets any bright ideas.)
