On Friday, February 21st I gave my talk on 5 ways to get involved with Ubuntu today at the Southern California Linux Expo’s Ubucon.

Ubuntu California planning for the Southern California Linux Expo

The Ubuntu California team does a lot of small events throughout the year, from release parties and jams to regular Ubuntu Hours all over the state. But our big event of the year is always the Southern California Linux Expo. We kick off the expo with an Ubucon on SCaLE’s Friday of miniconfs. I’ve had […]

December updates from Ubuntu California

Ubuntu-related events have been chugging along here in California. On Wednesday evening here in San Francisco I had the pleasure of hosting an Ubuntu Hour and Bay Area Debian Dinner. Both events attracted new attendees, which was great to see during December, a month that’s historically pretty quiet for us. On Thursday night I joined […]

Virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit 1311

As is tradition, this virtual Ubuntu Developer Summit kicked off with an introduction by Jono Bacon and keynote from Mark Shuttleworth. It was at 6AM my time, I shut off my 5:45AM alarm and proceeded to sleep until the first session I had to be at 8:05AM. Hah! Fortunately it was available on youtube immediately […]

On Saturday the 8th I hosted an Ubuntu Global Jam focused on ISO testing over at the Wikimedia Foundation office in downtown San Francisco. Upon arrival I met Andrew White, our Wikimedia host, and he outlined a few options for setup. Given power requirements we ended up in a conference room and I was able […]

Local LoCo Team Portal Install

At the last UDS there were some discussions about some of the things people wanted to see in the LoCo Team Portal. Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that while there were plenty of ideas, there is only one active developer, with just a couple others who pitch in with fixes. In short, we need more […]
