Edubuntu Server Demo at UDS

Edubuntu Server Developments

Early in the 12.04 development cycle, we started talking about the revival of the Edubuntu Server product. For 13.04, it's happening!

One of the first and most major planned features is for Edubuntu Server to act as a domain controller using samba 4.

If you're not yet following Stéphane Graber on Google+, here are some nice screenshots and explanations of what it currently does:

Stéphane also did a blog post detailing out some of our goals for Edubuntu, which we'll talk about a lot in the upcoming months: http://www.stgraber.org/2012/10/21/edubuntu-the-path-to-14-04-lts/

Session at Ubuntu Developer Summit

On Thursday, there's an informational session where we'll be doing a demo on what's currently implemented on Edubuntu Server in terms of a directory server and also gather some feedback and answer questions. If you're at UDS, we highly encourage you to attend.

The schedule for UDS tends to be quite volatile, so please keep an eye on it for changes. We'll see if we can get a nice venue so that you can watch by remote participation.
