Whether you’re an amateur developer or seasoned pro the Ubuntu App Showdown is a great way to put your skills to the test.

Better yet you might even win one of two Ubuntu laptops from System76!

The contest itself has been running for just under a week, but there is still ample time in which to get involved – though you will need to put in some graft to make up for the lost time.

But to help jump start you we’ve highlighted some helpful video tutorials to help jump-start your developmental juices.
