Abstract

The first large release of data from the UKIDSS ESO public survey took place in July 2006. The size of the data set is about 7% of the size of the final survey data set. Early science results are presented here, ranging from the nearest coolest brown dwarfs, to the most luminous, rarest, galaxies at 5 <z <6. Progress on the headline science goals of UKIDSS, such as the determination of the faint end of the stellar IMF, and the discovery of quasars beyond z = 6, is in line with expectation at this stage of the surveys.
