The help app for the phone is coming together. Anyone of you interested in helping out?
In the past weeks Nick, David, a few others and I worked on an app / a website, which could easily collect information which will give users of an Ubuntu device a head-start. All our collective experience and knowledge, easily added and translated. We achieved quite a bit.

Hello All.

Earjack is not working but I don't know if it's working or not on reference phone.

Happy porting.

I know some people who can give some insights on this, please take a few minutes
 
I'm doing a report for university to do with Linux and Open Source Software Sustainability
If anyone working or using Linux/Open Source Software would like to help me and answer and/or share this questionnaire, it would be super helpful!
Thank you lots, Chloe

Linux and Open Source SustainabilityLinux is a kernel, you can run Linux on the desktop, if you run ChromeOS, SteamOS, Ubuntu or the likes, this doesn't include Mac or Windows. Open Source this means that the code is open so that anyone can read it, proprietary software means that you can't read the code and cant be read or edited by the user, an example of Open Source would be LibreOffice and an example of proprietary software would be MS Word. Why I'm doing this, I'm doing this ...

Been secretly waiting for that one too. But I knew it would take a little while. ;-)

Thanks +Ian Weisser, I plan on updating and improving this presentation, to give it again at other conferences.
 
An amazing insider presenatation by +Michael Hall at #scale13x on the ways #Canonical has encouraged community participation in vital projects in #Ubuntu , how those ways have changed over time.

This is a tremendous success story, and it's wonderful to see the story, warts and all, getting told. It's also a great general study in leadership, organizing and motivating volunteers, and a learning organization.

I went an extra mile and a half on the treadmill to see the end of it.

Very good talk +Michael Hall. It was very interesting to understand a little bit more about the evolution of Ubuntu and its community. Hope we make success on mobile market!

+Dominik Smatana I had never heard of this game, it looks cool. Though I'm not sure you can design things not "planned" by the developpers as you can in minecraft, for example bridges have to be programmed, you can't invent bridges yourself.

Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) are supposed to make programming easier, one problem with them however is that it can be difficult to install the latest version of an IDE on a Linux system if they are not in the repos.

Luckily a solution exists, on Ubuntu, to install Android Studio and other IDEs like Eclipse with greater ease. And that solution is a cli tool called Ubuntu Make. It can be installing by adding its PPA to your system:

Now we just need an app that can let you up/down vote and leave comments of your own.
 
Hi there! I just published a scope to access Hacker News. It's fairly simple right now, but it allows you to access the story and it's comments. And it's GPLv3. You can find the code here: https://github.com/srxavi/hackernews_scope

That's what I want to do next. I wanted to try the scope first to see what I could do and after that, if the scope is not enough develop a full fledged app. :)

If you wanted to support Roman earlier but couldn't due to the issues he had with Pledgie, PayPal and Russia, you can help him now on IndieGoGo
 
Sorry in the third time. Pledgie doesn't work in Russia. Please, repost. If it won't work, I'll stop spamming here. 

I wrote about donations for my projects for some weeks ago, and somebody advised to use Pledgie web site. But it doesn't work in Russia, so I'll use IndieGogo.

So, I hope, that you know about me and help me to receive Ubuntu phone. Please, if you can't donate, but want to help me to continue make applications and games for UT, share it with your circles.

Thank you so much.
