Ubuntu Opportunistic Programming @Europython: The slides

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on July 8, 2011

 

As I previously announced I attended the last Europython as a speaker and I made a presentation about Ubuntu and the Opportunistic Programming. This is the ODP file with slides and the PDF Handout. They also published the video of my english talk, but it’s a little bit weird because for the whole hour the video shows the projected slides and only my shadow on the left. Oh yes, sometimes you can see even my shoulder. :)

I hope somebody may find these slides useful and maybe reuse it.

UPDATE: Somebody said that not seeing my face in the video it’s a feature, not a bug. LOL!

Ubuntu Opportunistic Programming @Europython

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on June 15, 2011

EuroPython is the official European conference about the Python programming language. It is aimed at everyone in the Python community, of all skill levels, both users and programmers. The EuroPython 2011 will be held in the city of Florence, Italy.

The place where I live is very close to Florence so I proposed a talk about Ubuntu and the Opportunistic Programming. My proposal resulted very popular during the voting and they asked me to perform it both in English and Italian. It’s planned for Monday 20 June in English and for Tuesday 21 June in Italian.

During the talk I will talk about Launchpad and Quickly. After the talks I will share with a blogpost the slides and the handout I prepared.

Please wish me good luck! :)

Italian Ubuntu Party 2011

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on May 4, 2011

Last weekend we had the first Italian Ubuntu Party. We made it in the pretty city of Schio (VI). Everything worked fine, thanks to the indefatigable Ubuntu-it Rockstar Dario Cavedon. During two days we had 24 Talks, Install parties and a lot of chat :).

It has been a really nice event and I’m really looking forward to organizing the next one :)

Thanks to all the people from the LUGs who helped Dario organizing it, and the Ubuntu-it Members coming from differents part of the country.

Natty is finally out and this week we have the Ubuntu Open Week.

What is it an Open Week? Quoting from the wiki page “Ubuntu Open Week is a week of IRC tuition and Q+A sessions all about getting involved in the rock-and-roll world that is the Ubuntu community. We organise this week for the beginning of a new release cycle to help new contributors get involved.

I’ll lead the Ubuntu Testing session at 15.00 UTC. We’ll talk about ISO Testing, LoCo Testing Team and the New Laptop Testing!

Ubuntu@Fermo

Posted by Paolo Sammicheli on January 24, 2011

 

Last weekend we hold a conference in the nice town of Fermo, called Ubuntu@Fermo. Andrea Colangelo organized everything in every little detail and the weekend was just perfect.

The event location was a conference center held by the municipality of Fermo and made into a deconsecrated church, really an amazing venue:

During the evening we spoke about the Ubuntu project and how to partecipate, the Ubuntu Women project, the opportunistic development in Ubuntu and the great Andrea Colangelo’s Talk “Debunking Ubuntu myths”.

Thanks to Canonical for the nice gift they sent just in time for the conference and for the Conference Pack:

More photos available:

Really a great conference!
