Planning Begins For Next Week's Ubuntu vUDS Summit

Another Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit is set to take place next week to get a better grasp of the Ubuntu 13.10 goals reached and the work ahead within the Ubuntu ecosystem for the next three to six months.

This next "vUDS" event is taking place online from the 27th to 29th of August. Details for those wanting to participate can be found at uds.ubuntu.com.

For those curious about what's set to take place and be discussed next week, the blueprints for the different sessions are beginning to form on Launchpad. Pull up this Launchpad.net page for a listing of the different blueprints for this August 2013 virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit.

At the time of writing there's 24 blueprints. While much of Canonical's public focus these days is regarding Ubuntu on smart-phones and tablets, most of the blueprints listed right now are concerning Ubuntu on servers and cloud computing. There's very few Ubuntu Touch or "Phablet" blueprints at the moment, but we'll keep monitoring the list this week and the schedule for the Internet-based event. There's also no Mir blueprints as of Monday afternoon.

Among the cloud/server topics at the moment are on Ceph, MongoDB, Juju, the Ubuntu virtualization stack, and OpenStack. The few Ubuntu Touch/Phone/Tablet blueprints so far include work on developer testing for the Ubuntu Touch SDK and planned work on the Ubuntu Phablet Tools.

From the sounds of some mailing list chatter, this vUDS at least from the server perspective sounds like just a re-hash of information that was previously just discussed internally at Canonical and only now is being updated and presented publicly. Canonical's Daviey Walker wrote, "This is an chance for those involved in Cloud and Server to do a 'show-and-tell' of blueprints defined 3 months ago. We can evaluate decisions made then, check if assumptions were correct, anything we feel needs to be re-addressed and some re-scoping. Very little (if any), new work should come from this. The Canonical Server team previously did this same exercise but at an internal-only mid-cycle sprint. This is largely the same thing, but out in the open."
