The inaugural Ubuntu Hardware Summit in Taipei came to an end on Tuesday evening with over 170 delegates in attendance. This was the first time a major Linux OSV has run this type of event in Taiwan, generating real excitement in the press beforehand (some sample coverage for those who read Chinese).
The show was aimed at engineers and technical teams within ODMs in Taiwan. This is part of our programme to improve Linux skills and familiarity in Taiwan to make it easier for manufacturers to ship Linux. Content included detailing the Ubuntu desktop roadmap, kernel device driver development, networking in Ubuntu and working with the Linux kernel community.
Throughout the one-day summit, delegates were updated on all the latest news from Canonical and given first-hand experience working with Ubuntu. Guest speakers were flown in from Europe and the USA, presenting keynote speeches and more in-depth break-out sessions.
The Ubuntu Hardware Summit will be the first of a series. We were delighted to have members of so many leading ODMs and OEMs in attendance as well as members of the local Debian community. Once the details are fixed, we will post notice of the next event on this blog.
