Announcing Ubuntu App Developer Week

Ubuntu App Developer Week

I’m thrilled to announce the next edition of Ubuntu AppDeveloperWeek, from the 11th to 15th April 2011 at #ubuntu-classroom on IRC.

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.

The Sessions

The whole week is packed with interesting subjects, aimed both at new and experienced developers. During the sessions you’ll get a solid overview on a broad range of the Free Software technologies that will enable you to create your applications in Ubuntu. At the same time, you’ll be able to chat and ask your questions directly to the true rockstars on those subjects.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Integrating applications with Ubuntu tech: Unity, AppIndicators, Ubuntu One, the Sound Menu
  • Enabling multitouch support in applications
  • Application development and testing with Python
  • Rapid Application Development with Qt Quick and QML
  • Rapid Application Development with Quickly
  • Using the Bazaar revision control to track source code history
  • Using Launchpad integration features to develop applications
  • GObject Introspection, PyGI, Plasma, Zeitgeist, GStreamer, Touchégg, KDE, Thunderbird, Internationalization, the Application Review Process, Pkgme, Phonon… you name it. Learn more about the hottest topics and how to use the coolest technologies to write your applications, straight from the best experts in the Free Software world.
  • Check out the complete schedule.

    What about lernid? Seems like this tool is not used anymore? I found it quite good! Also already used it yesterday. The calendar seems not to be filled correctly for the event!

  4. David Planella Says:

    We no longer recommend the use of Lernid, as it does not work too well in the latest Ubuntu versions.

    That’s a pity. I found the idea quite good. I think the tool helped promoting the developer weeks!
