It's show and tell time!

UOS Time is here! UOS is the Ubuntu Online Summit we hold each cycle to
talk about what's happening in ubuntu. UOS 15.11 will be on November 3rd
- 5th.

I'm writing to encourage everyone to not only attend, but to also
consider presenting a session for the 'Show and Tell' track(1). Sessions
are open to everyone as a platform for sharing interesting and unique
things with the rest of the community. These sessions can be very short
(5 or 10 minutes) and are a great way to share about your work within
ubuntu.

This means things like demos, quick talks, and 'show and tell' type
things. A typical session may last 5-15 minutes, with time for
questions. It's a great way to spend a few minutes talking about
something you made, work on, or find interesting. Your demo can be
unscripted, and informal. *This does not have to be a technical talk or
demo*, though those are certainly welcomed. Please feel free to how off
design work, documentation, translation, interesting user tricks or
anything else that tickles your fancy!

Last cycle we had developers talking about new APIs, flavors teams doing
Q and A sessions and demos, users sharing tricks, and even a live
hacking session where we collectively worked on an application for the
phone. Check them out(2). I'd love to see an even greater representation
this time around.

Proposing a session(3) is simple to do, and there's even a webpage(4) to
help you! If you need help proposing, feel free to contact myself,
hggdh, David Calle, or Laura Czajkowski who are your friendly track
leads for this track. Once it's proposed the session will be assigned a
date and time. Myself or another track lead will try to follow-up with
you before UOS to ensure you are ready and the date and time is suitable
for you.

Thanks!

Nicholas
