Wedding planning stuff and a PLUG meeting in Philly

Last week MJ and I headed to Philadelphia to celebrate the new year, attend a PLUG meeting and go to several wedding-related appointments we had lined up. Some flurries awaited our arrival Saturday night and there was already snow on the ground due to past precipitation, but it was nothing too worrying. Fortunately the weather […]

Ubuntu Developer Summit for Lucid Lynx – Dallas, Texas: Thursday and Friday

Yes, I’m trying to set a record for latest UDS wrap-up post! Finally, here’s the follow-up to my last post. UDS Day 4 – Encouraging A Diverse Community – This was a really interesting session as it focused less on tackling the diversity issue directly and instead focused on getting folks involved in general. Amber […]

Ubuntu Developer Summit for Lucid Lynx – Dallas, Texas: Tuesday and Wednesday

Last week I attended my first Ubuntu Developer Summit! It was a pleasure to be sponsored for this trip, so thanks again to Canonical for handling travel expenses, and to LinuxForce and my boss for allowing me to take the time off to attend.

CPOSC 2009 wrap-up and an interview

On Saturday I attended the Central Pennsylvania Open Source Conference 2009 as a table sponsor (for Ubuntu Pennsylvania) and a speaker. We arrived at CPOSC around 8AM to meet up with Jonathan and Crissi Simpson who had also come up from Philly the evening before, and to finally meet Bret Fledderjohn! Bret did an amazing […]

Ubuntu Code of Conduct v1.1

First off, Happy 5th Birthday Ubuntu! I first installed Ubuntu on a machine on March 12, 2005. Impressively precise date, huh? That’s because I signed up on ubuntuforums.org the same day. In an interesting coincidence, this morning I had the pleasure of attending my first Ubuntu Community Council Meeting as a Council Member. And we […]

Getting ready for CPOSC 2009

This evening MJ and I will be heading out to Harrisburg to spend the night out there prior to the Central Pennsylvania Open Source Conference (CPOSC). The Ubuntu Pennsylvania team has a table (eep, I need to do some handout printing!) so if you happen to attend, be sure to drop by and say Hi! […]

Now catching up… PLUG Into Hive76! We had another successful meeting on the 24th, Kevin Valentine and […]
