  1. Ubuntu Release Sprint: calling for feedback!

    During the last UDS party, I had an idea to improve Ubuntu development, but I didn't know if it could be a good idea or a stupid one, so I talked to Daniel Holbach and David Planella about it and they were happy to hear about it and Daniel told me to talk about this directly to Mark (and I did it).

    Let's explain the basic idea.

    From an UDS and the next one, it would be useful to have a development sprint where people can talk about assigned UDS blueprints, at which point they are on their tasks, if they have any problems and if they will finish them within the next UDS.

    Of course Canonical cannot organize another meeting, it would be very expensive, so the idea is: why don't we use Google Hangout to organize the sprint? I has a limit of 10 people, I know, but we could select (for example) 5 from the community and 5 from Canonical. There would be parallel meeting and tracks, we would use the same blueprints used during the last UDS and we would add further notes. The attendees would be able to listen and watch the stream and make questions through the available chat.

    I've also created a wiki page with more informations and you can find it here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuReleaseSprint

    What do you think about? I know that Canonical is already organizing sprints and this could be a way to involve more the Ubuntu Community. Maybe we should schedule a session at next UDS to talk about this?

    I hope to get some feedback from you.

  3. Maemo Summit sto arrivando!

    {.alignright .size-full .wp-image-110 width="243" height="90"}Grazie a Nokia, avrò l'occasione fra pochi giorni di partecipare al Maemo Summit che si terrà a Berlino. Si svolgerà nei giorni di venerdi 19 e sabato 20 settembre e sarà ospitato nella splendida sede del C-base.

    Il Maemo Summit è un meeting degli sviluppatori e appassionati di Maemo, la piattaforma utilizzata sugli internet tablet della Nokia. Sarà un'occasione per conoscere di persona tantissima gente con la quale fino ad ora ho avuto a che fare soltanto tramite la mailing list o il canale IRC.

    Nei prossimi giorni sperò di riuscire a postare, quasi in tempo reale e connessione internet permettendo, un report dettagliato di quello che verrà fatto all'interno del C-base. Non mancheranno ovviamente le fotografie, che avrò cura di pubblicare su Flickr!
