Ubuntu Developer Week: Review of Day 2, Outlook: last day

Ubuntu Developer Week is passing by much too quickly, as always. Still it’s great to see how many new people get involved, find out more about Ubuntu Development and get involved. Day 2 was yesterday and brought us many great sessions. Here’s what happened yesterday:

  1. How to write apps for Ubuntudpm: David Planella was well prepared as always and gave some good insights into what it takes to take an app from idea to a working app. He got quite a number of questions during the session, so I guess we can expect more apps coming to Ubuntu soon. :-)
  2. Ubuntu App review process explainedcoolbhavi: Bhavani Shankar explained the next step in terms of apps and demonstrated how a typical App Review works. Unfortunately the session was interrupted by a bot misbehaving towards the end, but lots of questions were still answered.
  3. Finding memory leaksachiang (Hangout!): Memory leaks can become huge problems in no time, and sometimes it’s not easy to debug or fix them. Alex Chiang is passionate about fixing them and provided a great session about how and where to start.
  4. Testing with autopilotballoons: Nicholas Skaggs and Thomi Richards are becoming the autopilot double-act (you will likely see them in tomorrow’s Automated Testing Hackfest as well). They gave a very nice introduction into autopilot and how to use it to test UI elements properly. Be sure to check it out and make good use of it.
  5. Unity integrationmhall119: Michael Hall, the author of “Hello Unity” and things like “singlet” knows how Unity works and how best to integrate your apps with it. It’s these finishing touches which make your app stand out and give the users the nice feeling of a seamless experience.
