Hack Days are back!
On March 25th – 27th 2014 from 09:00 – 21:00U UTC we’re having another round of Core Apps Hack Days as we Sprint towards the final Ubuntu 14.04 release in April.
This time we’re concentrating our focus on 6 main apps, but we welcome new contributions to all the core apps. We’re identifying all the bite-size bugs which would be ideal for new developers, and we have some more chunky work for more experienced developers looking for more of a challenge. Getting involved is really easy and it’s fun and friendly.
Music & Reminders will be the focus on Tuesday 25th.
Clock & Calendar on Wednesday 26th.
Weather & Calculator on Thursday 27th.
That said, we don’t want to limit contributions to just those days, and of course welcome community developers getting involved at any time of day or night!
We’ve detailed on the HackDays wiki page how you can get involved and all the other details. Head over there for more information.
David, Michael & myself will be around on IRC in #ubuntu-app-devel as always to co-ordinate and run the Hack Days. We’ll also be able to test on multiple mobile devices as well as desktops and laptops. We can review code and get completed work landed into trunk and on devices promptly. We’ll also have and other Core Apps community & Canonical platform developers around to consult and mentor where required.
If you’ve ever considered developing on Ubuntu, but not got around to it, now is a great time to join. There’s plenty to do for people of all levels, developing Free Software for a very wide audience. Join us and lets make the Core Apps rock!
