I’m attending the Ubuntu Developer Summit this week in Budapest, and I wanted to share how to participate in the security track remotely.
You’ll want to look at the schedule of security track sessions, and the icecast streams for the various rooms we’re in. Each session in the schedule has one or both of:
- an etherpad for recording discussions
- a blueprint which is the “working document” for that particular portion of the project
Both have little icons in the schedule.
You may also want to join the IRC channel for the session; there is one per room, with naming scheme #ubuntu-uds-$room_name_without_accents . There’s also #ubuntu-hardened, for general discussions and continuing to participate in the Ubuntu security community after UDS. If you’re not a big IRC user or your network blocks it, you may prefer web-IRC, which is available here for freenode.
This stuff of course generalizes for any other topic at UDS; check out the schedule for tracks on other topics.
