License to Spy: Ubuntu Developer Week

Jan 21, 2009

The Ubuntu Developer Week, which began yesterday and runs until Friday, is a perfect opportunity to look over the shoulders of the Ubuntu developers.

Aimed primarily at Linux developers, Developer Week is a chance to see how Ubuntu works from the inside. In various chat workshops, (held at fixed UTC times), developers will provide a deep insight into their everyday working lives.

How Gnome functions, for example, what is Gcnof, how packages are built, how are bugs detected, registered and fixed? All this and more will be explained, with ample time for Q&A's at each session. For those who can't watch live, protocols of the events can be found on the Ubuntu timetable page.
In his blog, Daniel Holbach admits he's already pleased by the response. “ We had lots and lots of attendants and I was surprised how many really great questions we got and how awesome the atmosphere was. "Everybody is really thrilled about getting started with Ubuntu Development. WOW!” he says.

Alongside an introduction in various different languages, workshops concerning the of packages,cooperation with Debian and Gnome-basics were held in English.
Sessions on Launchpad bug-tracking and the debugging from crashed programs are planned for today.
