Unity and convergence to an Ubuntu Touch world

Ubuntu, through Unity is tackling the convergence topic between multiple form factors. We will expand the past and future evolutions throughout that goal.

This talk is about presenting how Unity was built and its history through the Ubuntu Netbook Remix to become the default on this distribution desktop flavor. We will discuss what to expect as well for the next Unity desktop version and how Mir and the newly Unity8, based on Qt and QML, was needed for the phone flavor. The different technologies and a demonstration of the current progress will close the talk before opening to a QA.
