Dalton Durst of @ubports fame held a great talk on improving Linux phone battery life at #LAS2020. If you can only watch one video this week, make it this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jp6Q6SQUq_Q&feature=youtu.be&t=5599
(Yes, I am going to publish video content this week, but it won't be as important. Sadly I am not aware of any YouTube alternatives hosting this video currently.)
Wanna help me test the next point-release of the #UBportsInstaller? Not as exciting as the last ones, just some error handling improvements. Still good, though, as it includes prerequisites for an upcoming device! #spoilers @ubports #UbuntuTouch

Our friends at Volla are recruiting a Freelancer Ubuntu Touch Developer, to help them with maintaining the Ubuntu Touch port for the VollaPhone. Details at:
#UBports #UbuntuTouch #VollaPhone #Jobs
It's still early in development, but the basic features are there! We'll begin trialing the software for different @ubports projects such as #UbuntuTouch, the #UBportsInstaller, and some core apps. Head over to https://ubports.open-cuts.org to see it in action!
Again, development is still early, so head over to our GitLab org https://gitlab.com/open-cuts to see how things progress over there (and maybe star the repos while you're at it?). I also probably won't shut up about it on here ;)
