Hey Laura, hope everything is ok. You’ll be sorely missed and I really hope to hear you again in the future on the podcast!
All the best.
Hi, I would very much like to try an Ubuntu phone, the problem is that as I had to give up work care my wife who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis , money is not exactly a commodity we have to spare.
I use technology and developing as a lifesaver and a way to keep sane while all around me is chaos.
Which device do you feel would be the best one for me to use, it’s something I would have to save up for, so the latest tablet while something I would love is out of the question.
I would ultimately like to write software for the Ubuntu touch devices, as I am a programmer with many years experience, my last job working for NATS developing ATC s/w.
It’s developing into as Essay so I shall stop there.
Any advice and suggestions would be gratefully received.
