Bazaar IDE integration

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Here on the Launchpad team we work pretty closely with the Bazaar community.

This week, Canonical‘s London HQ has been host to a Bazaar sprint. It’s been great to meet up with members of the Bazaar community from Australia, the USA, Argentina, France, the Netherlands, Hungary and the UK. I’ve been working with them on plans for a new Bazaar administrator’s guide.

I’ve also recorded a short chat with Martin Albisetti who is leading the new Bazaar IDE integration team. Martin talks about the technical and advocacy approaches they plan to take.

Listen to the interview with Martin.

How we develop Launchpad – an interview

Monday, August 13th, 2007

With gigabytes of live data and thousands of users, I was keen to know how Launchpad’s development team work together to produce a new release each month.

I chatted with one of my Launchpad colleagues, Joey Stanford, at Canonical’s London offices to find out more about:

  • Launchpad’s four weekly release cycles.
  • How a features makes it from idea to release.
  • The importance of the Launchpad Beta Testers team.
