The Ubuntu Rally, taking place in New York City September 25th-29th, is a forward-thinking five day software hackathon attended by major software vendors, Ubuntu developers working at every level of the stack, and community contributors.

There are a limited number of non-sponsored slots remaining. If you’re local to New York or can arrange for your own travel and accommodation, send us a mail to snap-advocacy@canonical.com briefly outlining what you’d like to work on during the sprint.

Some examples:

  • Language ecosystem developers who want to support outputting Snaps
  • Application developers who want to publish in the Snap Store and share feedback
  • Linux distribution maintainers who want to add Snap support to their storefront
  • GNOME developers who want to help improve the Ubuntu Desktop
  • IoT device manufacturers who want to enable their hardware with Ubuntu Core
  • PC OEMs who want to to help set the direction of Ubuntu or enable Ubuntu on their hardware
  • Active & passionate community contributors

Proposals will be reviewed and invites sent on Sept 13th.
