"One thing that really stands out to me is quite how far-reaching the development is distributed. There are attendees from so many countries, I couldn't possibly keep count. Working, and socialising with these people is very enjoyable. As I arrived on the Sunday I felt a great sense of joy seeing people who I haven't seen for six months, at the last summit. Catching up on some of the really exciting things is what helps build our community often talking to people with interests that would never have been introduced to me if it were not for this event.

"This summit kicked off with a highlight from Mark Shuttleworth giving us a warm welcome and outlining some of the ideas this UDS would bring us. One of the more alarming things he announced was that the 10.10 release will be launched on 10 October 2010 (10.10.10). Our development cycle is already very tight with the amount of work that needs to be achieved, and moving this in by a couple of weeks created a sense of worry in the room. However, at the end of the week, Robbie Williamson (normally the Foundations lead) did some number crunching, some pretty graphs and demonstrated that it really is an obtainable goal."
