UDS and Barcelona
I'm in Barcelona, attending the Bazaar sprint, which happens to be cohosted with the Ubuntu Developer Summit. I attended half a day of the UDS in Sydney a couple of years ago, so I had some idea of what I was in for already. It's a lot of fun, and having the two events at the same place at the same time was really worthwhile :-) I finally got to meet some of the Ubuntu server people in person.
I flew here a couple of days early so I could do some sightseeing, never having been in Barcelona (or Spain) before. The city was much nicer than I had expected, and we had some great weather. The timing was great, too: we we were there during the Cycling Tour of Catalonia and F.C.B. won both the national title and the European champions league (I hope I got that right, the important bit was the large amount of people partying outside :-).
During the first day of the summit I gave a short plenary talk on the Samba packaging in Ubuntu. Other than that I spent most of the time during the day switching back and forth between the Bazaar sprint room and the various break-out sessions. The main topics in the Bazaar world were the 2.0 release, and what had to be done to get it out of the door.
