Jono Bacon: Ubuntu Open Week

Filed under
Ubuntu

Recently I have been working on a series of IRC events to help get new people into our community. As such, next week (Mon 27th Nov 2006 - Sat 2nd Dec 2006) the Ubuntu community holds our Ubuntu Open Week - a week of IRC tutorials and sessions designed to encourage more and more people to join our diverse community. In just two years, Ubuntu has grown to a user base of over 6 million and a worldwide community spanning many different disciplines.

The week of events includes sessions from some of the most well respected members of the Ubuntu community, on a number of different diverse subjects, including The Ubuntu Community, Kubuntu, MOTU, The Documentation Team, Edubuntu, Translating applications with Rosetta, The Bug Squad, Ubuntu packaging, Becoming an Ubuntu member, Launchpad, LoCo teams, Ubuntu Ports and a Q + A session with Mark Shuttleworth.

Meanwhile, the very first Tizen (Samsung Z1) and Ubuntu (BQ Aquaris E4.5) phones have only just shipped, and Jolla’s Sailfish OS based Jolla phones are still mostly limited to Europe. Read more
