Ubuntu has an interface, Unity, that stretches neatly from phone, to tablet, to the PC and the TV. It is unique in providing developers with a single platform from phone to cloud. And it is all free software.
This session will be an introduction to the design of Ubuntu, a guide to designing your own applications for Ubuntu on phone or tablet form factors, and an overview of the processes that are important for you to understand if you want to contribute to the core OS.
