Welcome back to another week of Ubuntu Core Apps Hack Days! As always we will be in #ubuntu-app-devel on Freenode’s IRC from 9am to 9pm UTC to answer all of your questions, help you get your development environment setup, and get started contributing to the Core Apps projects.
To start off this week we will be taking a look at the Calculator app. The Calculator was another one of the original core apps, made some of the fastest progress and was one of the first to make it onto the device images’ default install. The Calculator is as simple as it is beautiful, and thanks to this and the hard work put in by it’s developers, that means it’s already feature-complete as far as our dogfooding list was concerned:
- Create a common calculation (subtraction, addition, multiplication etc). DONE!
- Create a new calculation. DONE!
- Keep previous calculations across reboots of the app and device DONE!
