While the developer summit is open, we do need to have an idea of who is going to be coming so we can plan the space requirements. Please fill in your information at [[/Attendees]]. Please also note that this is a developer summit, not a typical "presentations and speeches" conference. It's hard work with an intense schedule, mapping out the road to Breezy+1. You'll be collaborating with the lead developers and helping to define the concrete deliverables that make up the next six months work.

How to Attend

All core Ubuntu developers will be in attendance and anyone else who is interested or involved in Ubuntu is welcome to attend as well.

Please also note that this is a developer summit, not a typical "presentations and speeches" conference. It's hard work with an intense schedule, mapping out the road to Breezy+1. You'll be collaborating with the lead developers and helping to define the concrete deliverables that make up the next six months work.

  • Join #ubz on irc.freenode.net for random developer summit discussion!

Goals and Agenda

We will have a community focused Ubuntu Love Day on Sunday 30 October. The rest of the conference will be focused on technical specifications and development for Ubuntu Version 6.04 (in the first week) and Launchpad (in the second week). All are welcome, but please expect to contribute in a hands on manner to the technical direction of Ubuntu and Launchpad.

You can learn about the UBZ process in this presentation.
