Community Manager Jono Bacon to Talk Ubuntu Unification at XDA:DevCon 2013

If you’ve been paying attention to the latest Ubuntu developments, you will know that Canonical is trying to unify the experiences between your different devices—from phones to tablets to computers. We are excited to announce that Ubuntu will be represented at XDA:DevCon 2013 by a well-known man in the open source community, Jono Bacon.

If you don’t know, Jono Bacon is a leading community manager, engineering manager, consultant, and author. Working as the Ubuntu Community Manager at Canonical, he leads a team that grows and inspires the global Ubuntu community numbering in the hundreds of thousands.

Bacon is a prominent author and speaker on community management and best practice, and he wrote the bestselling The Art of Community, is the founder of Community Leadership Summit (the primary annual conference for community managers and leaders), and is a regular keynote speaker at events about community management, leadership, and best practice.

Bacon was the co-founder of the popular LugRadio podcast, which ran for four years with more than 2 million downloads and 15,000 listeners, as well as spawning five live events in both the UK and the USA, and co-founded the Shot Of Jaq podcast. He is also the founder of the Ubuntu Accomplishments, Jokosher, Acire, Python Snippets, and Lernid software projects.

When you attend XDA:DevCon 2013, you will hear a new talk from Jono Bacon. He will present the vision of a single, ubiquitous, free and open OS that Ubuntu is working on that spans phone, tablets, desktops, and TVs. This vision is built from a central code-base, and a consistent yet responsive design across these different form factors. In the presentation, Bacon will present where Ubuntu stands today, how Canonical is working with the XDA community, the new application developer community that is forming, and the roadmap for the next year.
