At a loose end in Bangalore on 27th? Try Ubuntu Developer Day

News reaches the lab that Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, the Linux operating system which we install on our refurbished machines, is organising a Developer Day on 27th January 2011 in Bangalore, India.

The event will be held at Bangalore’s Leela Palace Kempinski Hotel.

Ubuntu is different from other commercial Linux offerings that preceded it, since Canonical doesn’t divide its efforts between a high-quality commercial version and a free, ‘community’ version. The commercial and community teams collaborate to produce a single, high-quality release, which receives ongoing maintenance for a defined period (these are known as Long Term Support (LTS) releases. Ed.). Both the release and ongoing updates are freely available to all users.

The programme will feature keynote speeches from various members of the Canonical team, as well as hands-on technical sessions it is designed to deliver a great way for any developer to rapidly get up-to-speed on Ubuntu.

The event will be of interest to engineers and developers with a professional interest in using Ubuntu as a development platform, or in developing applications for the Ubuntu user base. And the best bit… it’s free!

Prospective attendees are asked to register before 20th January in order to guarantee a place.

Full details are available on the Canonical website.
