Checking in from the Ubuntu Developer Summit

Posted in Ubuntu Server on March 13th, 2014 by Pat Gaughen

The Server team just finished up the second day of the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) March 2014 (see http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1403/track/servercloud/ for the Server track). I may be biased (well, actually, I know I am), but I think its been very interesting – lots of good, thoughtful discussions around where we are and where we’re heading. Check out the videos and let us know what you think.

One video from today’s UDS sessions, I wanted to specifically highlight is the demo Robie Basak gave on uvtool.  Uvtool is, as Robie explains in the video, a very simple tool for setting up kvm guests – he calls it the glue that brings together several existing tools.  Just go watch it – http://www.youtube.com/embed/Ue0C2ssp450 and then go try it.

In December, Serge did a writeup on uvtool, I think that’s worth a read also – http://s3hh.wordpress.com/2013/12/12/quickly-run-ubuntu-cloud-images-locally-using-uvtool/

Anyhow, time to prepare for the last day of UDS. Enjoy!
