The Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) for Ubuntu 11.10, a.k.a. the "Oneiric Oncelot" release, is getting started tomorrow in Budapest, Hungary.

The complete summit details for this event running from Monday to Friday can be found on Ubuntu.com. Like usual, there's quite a lot happening at any given time during the day. I just landed into Budapest yesterday afternoon for UDS and am preparing my schedule for the week.

After previously sharing some of the planned highlights, here's my rough itinerary for the week. Of course, any interesting information coming out of any of these summit talks will be published to Phoronix.

I'm actually leaving Friday morning at 6.00 to go back to Berlin for LinuxTag that weekend, so I won't be present at any of the talks in Budapest on the last day, unfortunately.

The most interesting bits this week will be posted on Phoronix with my thoughts. I'll also be posting to my Twitter in real-time with more details. For those interested in remotely participating there will also be IRC and audio feeds for communication. Canonical is also using EtherPad this time around for handling the session notes.
