> Join us from Tuesday, 31st January 2012 to Thursday, 2nd February 2012
> for three action-packed days full of tutorial and hands-on session all
> around Ubuntu development. We spared no efforts to bring you a very
> diverse set of topics and a very diverse set of speakers as well. This
> time we managed get speakers from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Czech
> Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Pakistan, Poland,
> South Africa, Spain, UK and USA.
> No matter if you are new to Ubuntu development or quite experienced
> already, we are sure going to have an interesting session for you.
> Here's just an excerpt of the great things to come:
> * Packaging: find out how software is put into Ubuntu and how it's
> maintained. We have a variety of hands-on sessions where Ubuntu
> 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.
> Joining in is trivial. Use normal IRC (even a web browser will do) 
> or install Lernid  and connect.
