As expected, the second Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event for 2010 has been officially announced a couple of hours ago by Jono Bacon. The 11.04 Ubuntu Developer Summit event will take place in Orlando, USA from 25th to 29th October.
Last week we've had the pleasure of announcing the up-coming version of the Ubuntu operating system, Ubuntu 11.04 dubbed Natty Narwhal
, its goals, and the release schedule
Today we are very proud to announce the Ubuntu Developer Summit event for Ubuntu 11.04, where the entire Canonical development team and members of the Ubuntu community gather together to share knowledge, discuss and design the next version of the Ubuntu operating system!
"The Ubuntu Developer Summit
is the seminal Ubuntu event in which we define the focus and plans for our up-coming version of Ubuntu. The event pulls together Canonical engineers, community members, partners, ISVs, upstreams and more into an environment focused on discussion and planning."
The Ubuntu Developer Summit event takes place twice a year, for each Ubuntu release. This is the second USD event for 2010; the first one took place in Brussels, Belgium from 10th May to 14th May.
"For every UDS, Canonical sponsors a number of community members to attend the event. We are looking for those who want to bring some real insight and expertise in their area of Ubuntu, be it development or community governance."
"If you feel you could offer this but can’t afford to cover your expenses of attending, you should apply for sponsorship
." - said Jono Bacon in today's announcement
As we previously stated, Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) will bring multi-touch gesture support, better hardware support, improved artwork, and ARM compatibility. The development team will focus their efforts on first and lasting impressions. The highly anticipated GNOME 3.0 desktop environment should also be part of Ubuntu 11.04.
Ubuntu 11.04 will be the fourteen release of the Ubuntu operating system and will see the light of day on April 28th, 2011.
Be there if you care about the future of Ubuntu!
