Shortly before the submission deadline last night we had some small technical hiccups in the Ubuntu Software Store. This was fixed resolved very quickly (thanks a lot everyone who worked on this!), but we decided to give everyone another day to make up for it.

The new deadline is today, 10th April 2014, 23:59 UTC.

Please all verify that your app still works, everythings is tidy, you submitted it to the store and filled out the submission form correctly. Here’s how.

Submit your app

This is obviously the most important bit and needs to happen first. Don’t leave this to the last minute. Your app might have to go through a couple of reviews before it’s accepted in the store. So plan in some time for that. Once it’s accepted and published in the store, you can always, much more quickly, publish an update.

Submit your app.

Register your participation

Once your app is in the store, you need to register your participation in the App Showdown. To make sure your application is registered for the contest and judges review it, you’ll need to fill in the participation form. You can start filling it in already and until the submission deadline, it should only take you 2 minutes to complete.

Fill out the submission form.

Questions?

If you have questions or need help, reach out (also rather sooner than later) to our great community of Ubuntu App Developers.

The app showdown is still in full swing and we have seen lots and lots of activity already. The competition is going to end on Wednesday, April 9th 2014 (23:59 UTC). So what do you need to do to enter and submit the app?

It’s actually quite easy. It takes three steps.

There is lots of excitement around Ubuntu on phones and tablets. Especially with two handsets coming out later this year and features and more beauty landing every single week, it’s a lot of fun to watch the whole story unfold.

What many haven’t realised yet, is how easy it is to write apps for Ubuntu and that new apps are not only going to run on phones and tablets, but also on the desktop as well. To remedy that we put some work into making it easy to go out to events and give talks about Ubuntu and its app ecosystem.

What we have available now is:

  • improved presentation materials,
  • we made it easier for newcomers to step in, learn and present,
  • we reach out to app developer communities and our LoCo teams at the same time.

We have two great sets of events coming up soon: the Ubuntu Global Jam coming up in just 2 weeks and soon followed by the 14.04 release and its release parties.

Interested? So how do you prepare? Easy:

  • As somebody who can organise events, but might need to find a speaker: Ask in #ubuntu-app-devel on Freenode or on the ubuntu-app-devel@ mailing list, to see if anyone is in your area to give a talk. Ask on your LoCo’s or LUG’s mailing list as well. Even if somebody who’s into programming hasn’t developed using Ubuntu’s SDK yet, they should be able to familiarise themselves with the technologies quite easily.
  • As somebody who has written code before and didn’t find the Ubuntu app development materials too challenging, but might need to find some help with organising the event: Ask on the loco-contacts@ mailing list. There are LoCos all around the world and most of them will be happy to see somebody give a talk at an event.

Whichever camp you’re in:

  • Check out our docs. They explain what’s required to make the event a success.
  • Join our Q&A session. It’ll be at 27 March 2014, 18:00 UTC on Ubuntu on Air. (The video of session today is up here.)
  • Talk to us. Just comment on the blog post and we can surely help you out somehow.

Let’s make this happen together. Writing apps for Ubuntu and publishing them has never been easier, and they’ll make Ubuntu on phones/tablets much more interesting, and will run on the desktop as well.

Announcing the latest Ubuntu App Showdown contest!

image-app-showdown

????????

Today we are announcing our third Ubuntu App Showdown! Contestants will have six weeks to build and publish their apps using the new Ubuntu SDK and Ubuntu platform. Both original apps and ported apps, QML and HTML 5, will qualify for this competition.

Categories and prizes

This App Showdown is going to be very special, because we will have four dedicated categories in which you can participate and win a prize.

  1. QML: original apps written in QML or with a combination of QML and JavaScript/C++
  2. HTML5: original apps written using web technologies, be it pure HTML (and CSS/JavaScript) or with platform access using Apache Cordova
  3. Ported: apps ported from another platform, regardless of the technology used
  4. Chinese apps: apps in this category will have to be original and specific to China and the Chinese culture. They will be judged by two native experts in our jury.

The set of prizes will consist of a Nexus 7 (2013) per category for QML, HTML5 and ported apps.
Nexus7-2013


The top two Chinese apps will receive a Meizu device each.
Meizu-MX3

Review criteria

Apps in the HTML5/QML/Ported categories will be reviewed by a jury composed by an international team of five judges:

  • Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager
  • Adnane Belmadiaf, Ubuntu HTML5 expert
  • Lucas Romero di Benedetto, Ubuntu Community Design Team
  • Nekhelesh Ramananthan, Ubuntu Core App Developer
  • Joey-Elijah Sneddon, OMG!Ubuntu editor

The judges for the Chinese apps are:

  1. Shuduo Sang?Software Engineer in Canonical PES
  2. Joey Chan, Ubuntu Core App Developer
  3. Jack Yu, Ubuntu Kylin Lead/Ubuntu Member

The jury will judge applications according to the following criteria:

  • General Interest – apps that are of more interest to general phone users will be scored higher. We recommend identifying what most phone users want to see, and identifying gaps that your app could fill.
  • Convergence – apps that have a convergent layout that expands to dedicated tablet mode or optionally run well on the desktop will also be scored higher.
  • Features – a wide range of useful and interesting features.
  • Quality – a high quality, stable, and bug-free application experience.
  • Design – your app should harness the Ubuntu Design Guidelines so it looks, feels, and operates like an Ubuntu app.
  • Awareness / Promotion – we will award extra points to those of you who blog, tweet, facebook, Google+, reddit, and otherwise share updates and information about your app as it progresses.
  • Chinese culture – apps optionally submitted in the China category will be reviewed with the same criteria above, plus their relevance to Chinese users of the app. This can be by providing access to Chinese services, being related to Chinese culture or being generally useful to somebody in the People’s Republic of China.

Learn how to write Ubuntu apps

To make it easier for you to get started with writing apps for Ubuntu on the phone and tablets, we’ve set up a week packed with video streaming tutorials where experts from the Ubuntu community will teach you how to use Ubuntu platform technologies to write apps.

Join the Ubuntu App Developer Week! >

If you cannot join, review our app developer documentation.

How to participate

If you are not a programmer and want to share some ideas for cool apps, be sure to add and vote apps on our reddit page.

The contest is free to enter and open to everyone.

The six week period starts on the Wed 26th February and runs until Wed 9th April 2014!

In a few days (well, if I find some kind person to take care of Iron) I will be attending the Ubuntu One Developer evening in which we should be able to hear Stuart will be talking about the bunch of crazy ideas he has for developers to use or infrastructure to do cool stuff. I’ll be there for two reason:

  • Hear what Stuart has been planning. I’ve got to recognized I should know a lot more of the Ubuntu One developer program but unfortunately I have been in the working in the Windows port too much and I have ignored the rests of the teams… mea culpa :( .
  • Learn a few more things of the APIs so that I can find my little Chrome extension that uses Ubuntu One (no, it is not bookmark sync, I cannot be less interested in that!).
  • See a bunch of developers and learn about there ideas and what they are doing.
  • Drinks, drinks, drinks! I’m a University of Manchester alumni and a bloody miss Manchester, I don’t care what people say, it is a great city.

If you are going to be in Manchester you should join us, the event is FREE and trust me Stuart is a great guy to go out for drinks with (I’m not bad either, but I always get in trouble :P ).

First i would like to thanks all UDD attendees & Canonical, Ubuntu Community for making UDD successful event. we had around 350 attendees @ Hotel Leela, Grand Ball Room.

So, let me  share some behind the scene pictures.

 

This is how we started @ 1:30 PM, 26th Jnauary, 2011

 

Time to make seprate Ubuntu Cotton bags with T-shirts.

Final Goodies: Notepad, Pens, sticker, Products Sheets, Mavercik T-Shirts and Ubuntu Cotton Bags

 

Finally three containers with all goodies, according to their t-shirts size @ 2:30 PM, 26th January, 2011

Registration Counter @ 7:00 PM, 26th January, 2011

Agenda @ 9:10 PM, 26th January, 2011

UDD Presentation Hall @ 11:00 PM, 26th January, 2011

UDD Demonstration Room @ 3:00 AM 27 January, 2011

It was very interesting and busy day for all, packing bags to preparing demo room, shaping final presentations. We were very excited to see all Ubuntuers on UDD. And, OMG!!! that dream came true. Here is a picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started. And, I believe Picture Speaks Louder Then The Words, OMG!!! It is!

 

Fronte-Right-Corner: A picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started.

 

REAR-Right-Corner: A picture taken 15 minutes before the UDD started.

 

Though,  i was busy @ UDD Demonstration Counter, organized by Canonical and OEMs and LOEMs, showing their devices with Ubuntu, so i would not write much about UDD Presentation, later in this blog i will cover UDD Presentation source and community blog, covering whole UDD Presentation  part.  Again coming back to demo part, We demoed Wipro Machines (Netbook, Notebook, Tablet, Desktops), Lenovo All-In-One M90Z with Ubuntu 10.10, Dell Zino and Dell Latitude Netbook with Ubuntu Light. Most of the attendees were interested in getting list of Machine pre-installed with Ubuntu and available in Indian market. And that was one of the common need of all. And we surprised by seeing huge demand for that. In past, i have covered in my blog with picture of some LOEM brand with Ubuntu showcasing in CROMA. I got huge demand from attendees to generate and promote list of LOEMs and OEMs shipping machines with Pre-installed Ubuntu in Indian Consumer / Retail Market. We are already doing this for enterprise and corporates. I am sure i will cover that list in future blog. We had given 1 hour for UDD Demonstration Counter,  combined with UDD Break in UDD Agenda.  But personally,  i was much more  busy during the day  for demonstration ;) Here are few pictures from Demonstration Counter.

UDD Demonstartion Room @ 1:00 PM, 27th January, 2011

UDD Demonstration Counter @ 3:00 PM, 27th January, 2011

Overall it was amazing event. During the day, i had great meeting with Nigel Babu and Sreekanth. Nigel also covered detailed report of UDD. Sreekanth had given nice demo on preparing and running customized Ubuntu AMI on Amazon EC2 Cloud Services. We had given separate counter for community. Thanks a lot Sreekanth.

Finally, Closing keynote  by Prakash thanking  all UDD attendees and Canonical Employee for making UDD successful. Here is a snip from Nigel’s Blog Post.

Closing keynote by Prakash and Thanks to all UDD attendees and Canonical Employee for making UDD successful.

Though, We have finished the UDD, but still we are hearing from attendees. Personally, i got lot of e-Mails from attendees.  There was common request to do it again. And, of-course i will update you more in future. Here few words from one of e-Mail, i received. Personal thanks to Mr. Girish


Dear Hardik,
It was a great experience at Leela palace in Bangalore on Ubuntu Developer Day.
I had very good opportunity to meet many people to from open source.
Please keep on organising such events in India.

My Canonical colleagues also got the similar kind of e-Mails after UDD. It was great satisfaction for us. Here is few links around the web covering UDD, bit commercially, but that is not offensive :) .

To going at more commercial part, there was very nice coverage by Beyond Beat, Evening new paper.

I like the title most, i will close this blog with that one | UBUNTU STORY: STAFF OF TWO, LAKHS OF USERS | Big thanks to strong Ubuntu Community and Canonical. Now? Let’s make it billion….

I have seen lot of buzz around that, registration has been closed for Ubuntu Developer Day, Bangalore, Jan 27, 2011! Yes it’s very true. We are very sorry to say that we have closed registration for Ubuntu Developer Day, Bangalore, Jan 27, 2011, due to being hugely oversubscribed. We did this two days ago, when we were 10 days away from event. It gives me two kind of feeling (:) – :( ). But, i believe it has created huge hope and fundamentals for Ubuntu and proved it’s position before the event. This is just beginning….

I am personally sorry for those, who have missed the registration. See you all, who have registered and planned to attend UDD :) .
