A session at the Ubuntu Online Summit is a place where the community discusses, plans and assigns development work for the next release and promotes and provided instructions on how to get the most out of the current release. Anyone who participates in the Ubuntu Online Summit is welcome to propose a session for the event.
There are two ways to propose a session:
Follow the instructions below for how to register these sessions.
If you want to have a presentation or discussion session that does not require a blueprint, simply follow these steps:
In Ubuntu we track work and projects using blueprints. These are web pages that track the status, deadlines, work items, and other details of projects. You should create a blueprint for all new pieces of work.
To create a blueprint for the next Ubuntu Online Summit go to Launchpad and then click the Register a blueprint link as shown below:
Now fill in the different fields in the blueprint:
|Field||What To Enter|
|Name||The name is an important field. Choose which track you want your session on and then enter the following:
|Title||A short description of your session (e.g. Ubuntu Global Jam Plans).|
|Specification URL||(optional) A link to a longer specification of the project/feature/plan on the Ubuntu Wiki.|
|Summary||A description of the topic the session is intended to cover.|
When your blueprint is completed it will be accepted for the Ubuntu Online Summit and then the track lead for your session will determine if we can fit it into the schedule.
Please note: all sessions are accepted for the Ubuntu Online Summit but this does not mean it will be added to the schedule: the track leader needs to accept it first.
