The MeeGo Conference Warm-Up will include workshops catering to MeeGo application developers, and tutorials to help people get started developing for the platform. We also plan to have some fun extra-curricular activities involving building things. The warm-up sessions will be held at the Hyatt in San Francisco (the conference hotel/ conference facility) on May 21-22, the weekend before the conference begins.
We will have two tutorial sessions, and an application development workshop, running in parallel.
Because of space and equipment constraints, attendance for some of the workshops will be limited. As we get more information, we will keep you posted.
Among the topics we are planning to have hands-on tutorials for are:
We also plan to have application developer workshops on:
And we plan a fun Maker's Contest where contestants will have to use raw materials including balsa wood, paper clips, string, paper and glue to build a machine capable of launching a projectile (Trebuchet, slingshot, catapult, whatever) over a distance of ~10m. The results will be judged with a live-action Angry Birds contest.
We are still working on the contents of these sessions and who will be leading them. As we get more information, we will pass it on.

Training course offered by Gregg Leibovitz of ICS and Thomas Perl.
Topics covered include:
Presented by Daniel Wilms
David Greaves, Niels Breet and Henri Bergius will take you through the basics of using Community OBS, uploading your project, getting it built and packaged automatically, fixing any build issues, and making the software available on the community software downloads site.
This will be part tutorial, part hands-on workshop, part BOF.
Developers are invited to turn up and present their applications to other attendees and our UX experts, and identify together areas of improvement and possible designs for presenting the same functionality to the use.
10 teams of 3 to 4 people will have one hour to build the best siege weapon possible for a live action Angry Birds round which will decide the winner. Trebuchet, catapult or slingshot, the weapon must be able to send an Angry Bird bean-bag into a pre-arranged structure containing evil snorting pigs. The winner will be determined by our impartial judges and comperes, Dave Neary, Alison Chaiken & Julien Fouregard.
Equipment available to teams will include: various balsa wood cuts, glue guns and glue sticks, twine, paper clips, plain brown paper and elastic bands. There may be some other surprise materials thrown in on the day, if we're feeling generous.
A full day training session in using the MeeGo SDK to create and deploy software for MeeGo will be delivered by Bob Spencer of the SDK team and some members of the Intel AppUp team.
Topics covered will include:
The main focus of the SDK session will be on packaging and deploying software, and getting it into the hands of device users.
An overview of common Linux developer tools, including git, gdb and valgrind, by timeless.
A programming problem will be presented, and attendees will have a hands-on programming lab, with amateurs and experts on hand to help you out when you get into trouble. If you'd like to help out as an assistant during this training session, please add your name here:
Was a very popular activity for community members. Having it stocked with beer and snacks was perfect, and we'd love to do something similar for spring.
