As we reported earlier Ubuntu teams are hosting an online application development showdown event to attract new developers. The first week of the event has successfully conducted and two more weeks still to go, so if you missed it you still have a lot of time to follow the event in the coming weeks.
There were two days of video conference workshop during this week. The conference was free for anyone to join and ask questions.
