Ubuntu Core Apps Hack Days

Ubuntu is sponsoring a week of hack days on the Ubuntu Core Apps, the applications that will make up the majority of the apps used on Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu Phone. These apps are all brand-new, and they're built using the new Ubuntu SDK and QML (a language based on Javascript).

Samer will be on #masonlug for the duration of the events. You're welcome to join the channel if you can't make it in person!

The events will be run from 5am to 6pm on the irc channel #ubuntu-app-devel.
