A tutorial on how to go from "quickly create my-cool-project" to having
the application available in Ubuntu, including:
* Very quick introduction on Quickly using a "hello world" example
(not a quickly or python manual, this material already exists
and interested devs will find it)
* How to upload the code to Launchpad
* How to build and package the application
* How to get the application in Ubuntu
* How to deal with bug reports, provide updates, etc.
A simple overview of the essential libraries and components that make up
Ubuntu, geared towards developers who may not be intimate with how they
all interact together, e.g.:
* What's DBus for, when would you use it and how?
* What's DesktopCouch, when would you use it and how?
* Where should you store config and data files?
* What's gstreamer, cairo, glib, etc?
* Major libraries and APIs that you can rely on being shipped with
a default Ubuntu install,
