Kick arse. Kick arse. Those are the only ways to describe the Ubuntu Developer Summit. Here we are in Seville having a blast and getting some really productive work done. I have actually been here since Wednesday for the Ubuntu Education Summit and the Ubucon, and everything has been running smoothly.
The Ubuntu Education Summit was a great success, filled with some great talks. Of particular interest was the training talk from Billy and Frank, the Intel talks and the mEDUxa talk. Lots of enthusiasm all round. Well done to Richard for his efforts with the UES.
The Ubucon went stunningly well. About 60 - 100 people showed up, and everything ran very smoothly. Thanks to Sladen, Melissa, the local team and the GuadaLinex people for all their hard work. Also, thanks to everyone who spoke at the event and otherwise participated. It was a great example of an Ubucon in action. I hope this becomes a regular event - if only to get me over to Seville again.
The UDS has been going very well, lots of enthusiasm and vigour, and a stack of excellent, productive sessions. So, my little underlings, prepare for a bullet-point orgy to cover some of the community sessions:
