Canonical announced earlier today, February 26, that they have decided to replace the physical Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event, which took place every six months at a designated location (both in Europe and US), with an online event, scheduled to run every three months, starting with next week.

The Ubuntu Developer Summit event, funded and organized by Canonical, was rigorously planned months before it took place, which managed to gather together all the Ubuntu developers, as well as members of the Ubuntu community, in order to plan the future of Ubuntu.

The next UDS (Ubuntu Developer Summit) event, for the forthcoming Ubuntu 13.10 operating system, was supposed to take place in Oakland, California, USA in May 2013, but it was canceled, as Canonical decided to drop physical events and replace them with online ones.

This new format for the Ubuntu Developer Summit will make heavy use of Google+ Hangouts On Air split across 4 channels: App Developers, Community, Server and Cloud, and Client. Each channel will have 2 video streams, and the UDS sessions will integrate IRC, Social Media sharing, Etherpad, as well as links to specs and blueprints.

In conclusion, Canonical is pleased to announce that the first online UDS event will be taking place next week, from 5th to 6th March, from 4PM UTC to 10PM UTC, followed by another one in May, 2013.
