Save the date, join us in Riga for GUADEC 2023! 

GUADEC is the GNOME community’s yearly event. A great week of talks and workshops brings hundreds of GNOME developers, users, supporters and community members together. This year GUADEC will be held in Riga, Latvia, from July 26 to July 31. 

GNOME is an outstanding Open Source project. For over 25 years, it has helped shape the Linux and open source world through its numerous software programs, outreach efforts and community initiatives. Its flagship GNOME Desktop provides a great user experience, excellent design, that constantly innovates and pushes the boundaries of the modern desktop environment. It adapts to new hardware platforms, and it is the cornerstone of the Ubuntu Desktop experience.

Canonical is a proud supporter of the GNOME Project and a long time sponsor of the GUADEC conference. On top of being a gold sponsor of GUADEC this year, Canonical Community and Desktop teams are very excited to be there to help the GNOME community. We are bringing talks, workshops, and of course, we support the hallway track with our very happy and very orange Ubuntu booth!

Jeremy Bícha from the desktop team is going to show us how GNOME gets into Ubuntu. Till Kamppeter brings a talk about GNOME and printing, in his talk: The New Printing GUIs: GNOME Control Center and Common Print Dialog Backends

Later in the week, Till Kamppeter will make sure that Your app is everywhere, just in a SNAP! This will be a workshop on how to SNAP a GNOME application. Towards the end of the workshop, representatives of the Canonical desktop team will be available to help the attendees snap their own apps.

When you need a break from all the talks and workshops, please come and have a chat with us at the Ubuntu booth. Share your Ubuntu stories with us, let us know what you love, ask questions, leave feedback, learn from us about the latest development of Ubuntu Desktop, and remember to get some great stickers and swag!
