So you had a look into Ubuntu App Development, you liked what you saw and want to show your friends? Maybe you want to give a workshop at school, at university, at your LoCo team or your LUG? You're interested in showing this you to your colleagues at work? Great!
We have some materials prepared for you. You can choose from a number of different materials. There are a lot of speaker notes throughout the materials and we went through a couple of iterations already to iron out issues. Still it will help if you take some time to familiarise yourself with the content before you present.
- introduce everyone to Ubuntu for devices
- get people up to speed on what the SDK is, how the platform is organised, and get everyone set up
- give everyone a quick overview of QML and our design building blocks
Alternatively, if you're hard pressed for time, you can (instead of steps 1-3) give instead.
- let everyone work, in their own pace, on their first ever Ubuntu app.
- and/or: let everyone work, in their own pace, on their first ever Ubuntu (HTML5) app.
- and/or: let everyone work, in their own pace, on their first ever Ubuntu scope.
If you have questions or feedback, we're all ears. Let us know.
Not using Ubuntu?
If you are thinking of organising an event to teach Ubuntu App Development you might have a number of people who don't run Ubuntu on their laptop. If that's the case, you might want to let them know in advance that they can run Ubuntu in a virtual machine. If you are running OS X or Windows, please follow these steps to use Ubuntu as a virtual machine (just make sure you have enough space available on your machine). This way you won't have to install Ubuntu natively on your laptop.
- Download the ISO file. (15.04 will give you the latest development tools, which are useful for ie. developing scopes.)
- Burn it either to a DVD or USB stick:
Note: The user name on the image is "ubuntu" and the password is "ubuntu" as well.
