Off to Boston for UDS, FSF, ETC
By barton808 on Oct 26, 2007
Tomorrow around noon I head off for Boston and the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS).
The summit which is being held at the Hotel@MIT is a week long event
used to plan and do real work on the next release, which in this case
is Hardy Heron. (Not that I will be doing any real work, but hopefully some real learning.)
Hardy will be the second LTS (Long Term Support - 5yrs of support on the server, 3yrs on the desktop) release for Ubuntu, the first being "Dapper" or "6.06". Expect a whole bunch of hoopla around Hardy when it debuts on April 24th as "Ubuntu 8.04."
On beyond Ubuntu
In addition to hangin' with the Ubuntu folk, I will also pay a visit to Peter Brown and the Free Software Foundation as well as grabbing a beer with Michael Goulde
of Forrester. I will bring my trusty Flash Mic along and will hopefully
grab a bunch of podcasts. Speaking of which, I didnt get around to
posting the four I did last week at Sun's Open Source Summit, something
else to look forward to.
All Updated and Ready to Go
Just so the other kids at the summit don't laugh at me I updated this morning from Ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10. It was pretty painless over the net particularly since I had a big pipe here in the office. The only failure I got was "pmount" which, after checking the forums and a colleague I decided to ignore and hope its not somethin important :)
Like its 1999
And if the Sox win in 4...the town's gonna party like its 1999!Pau for now...
