Sprints

Whiteboard

App Developer Cookbook: http://developer.ubuntu.com/resources/

Contest requirements:
- The tutorial should be self-contained (downloadable source tarball?)
- Does not need to be Ubuntu-specific
- Dependencies only from the Ubuntu archives

Judging criteria
- Bonus points for integration with Ubuntu
How to submit a tutorial:
- Wordpress + SSO (currently not working)
- Repository + Markdown + Rendering
  - http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/26170/whats-the-easiest-way-to-periodically-automatically-read-static-markdown-cont

Considerations:
- Plagiarism

Prizes:
- Several categories

Recipes contest:
- We should have an initial set of requirements for tutorials before being accepted
   - Screenshots?
   - Completely working example/project for download?
   - Minimum version of Ubuntu for which the tutorial works
- Audiences?
  - We can have a set of tutorials for beginners/advanced or other categories
- We should define a license
- Versioning tutorials
- List of topics for tutorials that can serve as inspiration for contestants
- Add a a way so that other community members can submit topics they'd like to see tutorials for
