The Ubuntu Global Jam is an incredible opportunity for the Ubuntu community to unite together around the weekend of 27th - 29th August to work together to improve Ubuntu. Everyone is able to contribute to the Jam, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved. Curious about how to make a real difference to Ubuntu? This is a great chance to make that difference.
The Ubuntu Global Jam incorporates events that have been organized over the world to get Ubuntu contributors and fans together to have a great time and improve Ubuntu. Each event has one or more of our themes:
Bugs - finding, triaging and fixing bugs.
