Shuttleworth: U talking to me?

Ubuntu's Trusty Tahr has been released and that means it's time for a new
development branch. Mark Shuttleworth has announced the name
of the next Ubuntu release. "So bring your upstanding best to the table – or the forum – or the mailing list – and let’s make something amazing. Something unified and upright, something about which we can be universally proud. And since we’re getting that once-every-two-years chance to make fresh starts and dream unconstrained dreams about what the future should look like, we may as well go all out and give it a dreamlike name. Let’s get going on the utopic unicorn."

[Jessica McKellar]
In a keynote on day two of PyCon

Python community to focus on the "next generation" of Python programmers.

elsewhere in the world as well), but she also highlighted some concrete
steps the community could take to help fix it. Subscribers can click below
