Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) – Day 3
Here we are for a new report... I’m sorry if you find these reports mostly social, and not so much technical, but most (not to say “all”) of decisions taken at UDS are readable in the EtherPad page of each session of the day, so just look for them if you want to learn more.
To begin, this morning I joined these sessions:
- Unity Design Feedback
- Initiatives to involve new developers
- Porting Ubuntu custom settings to gnome-control-center
- Gwibber port to GTK3, but just the interface right now
After the nice meal I did, chatting with Alberto “tseliot” Milone, I finally enjoyed the plenaries of the afternoon that were more interesting than the previous days. In particular:
- Wine as a Performance Metric
- Building Applications with Ubuntu One
Then I continued with the normal sessions with:
- Review of existing XServer wishlist bug reports (fixing my Xorg installation, in fact)
And finally the so much waited session ran by Mark Shuttleworth
Also, the only picture of the day I’ve taken is about it:
After that, the today’s UDS events ended and I and Andrea Azzarone went to the Hotel Pool to relax using the SPA facilities (great!!); there, we also met Neri Marcorè, a known italian actor, imitator and TV presenter that was taking a sauna with us… So, he is in Budapest to shot a movie about Asterix and when he asked about us, we told him the Ubuntu story (good to know that he knew linux already! :P).
We also decided to leave some Ubuntu CDs, stickers and magazines to the Hotel reception to be given to him. We hope he’ll enjoy them!
Finally, we Italians (I, Andrea Cimitan, Andrea Grandi, Andrea Azzarone and Marianna Raffaele) ended the night with a Gulash (good and very cheap!) and a walk in Budapest, with some stops for beer, of course!
