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.

Leftovers: Software

  • Ocs-server 0.1 Technology Preview released! (with cats!)
    Finally, after many iterations, we have something that works! The ocs-server team (Claudio Desideri and Francesco Wofford) is therefore announcing the first release of ocs-server 0.1 technology preview.
  • 5 Less known Linux Admin Tools
  • dmMediaConverter Review - Converting Videos Has Never Been Easier
    dmMediaConverter is described by its developer as an FFmpeg frontend (GUI), but regular users only need to know that it's an application that allows them to quickly convert files from one format to another, in a simple and intuitive way. It's not the best looking out there, but it gets the job done.
  • Goggles Music Manager 1.0.7 Adds Support for Ratings and Tags to Filters, More
    On July 30, the developers of the Goggles Music Manager software, an open-source music collection manager and player that supports some of the most popular audio file formats, announced the release of version 1.0.7.
  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
