Some time ago, I saw down with the other two horsemen and we hatched a plan to have a week full of incredible IRC tuition sessions that show how to get involved in Ubuntu as a developer with packaging. Well, this resulted in the incredible wickedness that shall be known to all humanity as Ubuntu Developer Week and it happens from the 18th – 22nd Feb.
