Announcing the first Ubuntu SDK Days

Hot on the heels of the announcements of the Ubuntu SDK and the Touch Developer Preview, the Ubuntu App development community brings you the first ever Ubuntu SDK Days.

Make apps happen on all of these devices

On Thursday, 14th March and Friday, 15th March a number of app developers and Ubuntu SDK creators will get you started writing apps for Ubuntu on multiple devices. It’s surprisingly simple, and since the announcement we’ve seen many early adopters try out the SDK and the first apps up and running. The developers will answer your questions, talk about best practises and show you the power of the SDK.

Here a quick overview over the sessions which will be run:

  • Installing and Configuring the SDK
  • Writing your first app with the SDK
  • Writing games with QML and Javascript
  • Live update from the development progress of the Touch Core Apps
  • Several Q&A sessions
  • Making the best of the Ubuntu App Design guidelines
  • More about the SDK skunkworks projects
  • Introducing Friends and Gwibber QML
  • Writing a new generation of Scopes
  • Lightning talks and Project demos

How to join

Participating is easy: just head to ubuntuonair.com to watch the sessions on the schedule.

Videos will be available after the event, to ensure you can watch the content even if you couldn’t make it to the session you wanted.

You can ask your questions on the #ubuntu-app-devel IRC channel, which is also embedded on the Ubuntu on Air site for convenience.
