>    developers share their experience with you. It's the perfect time to
>    get involved.
>    Sessions: Intro to Ubuntu development, Getting set up, Dos and
>              Dont's, working with Upstream projects, building packages
>              locally, using pkgme for automatic packaging, writing good
>              changelog entries, distributed development and loads more.
>  * Quality Assurance and Bug Fixing: One of the greatest ways to
>    contribute to Open Source is resolving problems. Not only for you,
>    but for millions of users out there. Join in to find out from
>    experts how to make Ubuntu even better.
>    Sessions: Bug lifecycle, triaging bugs, fixing small bugs in lots of
>              different settings, automated testing, and lots of
>              hands-on action
>  * Writing code: we will talk about apps, tools, projects and
>    infrastructure to make writing software for Ubuntu even easier.
>    Sessions: automated testing, pair programming, code review,
>              technology overview, introductions to many cool
>              technologies and making your apps rock.
>  * Ubuntu projects and Ubuntu in the bigger picture: Ubuntu has grown
>    dramatically and lots of different project make the awesomeness we
>    release every six months. Find out who's doing what and what's new.
>    Sessions: Ubuntu TV, Edubuntu, juju, the Cloud, Unity and Debian.
