Beginning of March: Ubuntu Opportunistic Developer Week

Feb 09, 2010

Ubuntu's Community Manager, Jono Bacon, has announced the Opportunistic Developer Week, to take place from March 1 to 6, 2010. The distance learning course will deal with the speedy creation of applications on the Linux desktop.

The course is aimed at the casual developer with a little programming experience who wants to produce small goal-orientated applications. With Ubuntu, the developer is offering his target group a useful platform consisting of the components Python, Gtk, Gnome, Gstreamer, Glade and Desktop Couch - components behind some of Canonical's own applications.

Also part of the environment are the application generator, Quickly, the version control system, Bazaar and the project platform, Launchpad, complete with its Personal Package Archives (PPA) for the application publication.
The schedule for the course can be found at the Ubuntu Wiki. The use of Lernid, Jono Bacon's own application that combines Classroom, Chatroom, Slides and more, is recommended to connect to the course.
