The next release of Ubuntu will be one of the most ambitious releases yet. By replacing the default interface with Unity, changing to the newly released LibreOffice Suite, and upgrading Python to version 2.7, this version of Ubuntu promises to be a spectacular upgrade.
Because of all these major overhauls it is important to get as many people as possible testing, reporting bugs, triaging, and bug fixing before final release day. Come to the Michigan LoCo's Ubuntu Global Jam to help ensure this release is the best it can be.
We will be doing test installs and upgrades, hardware compatibility checking, along with some bug reporting and triaging. No prior experience is required; we'll be working together and in teams to help get everyone up to speed and contributing.
Bring your laptop(s), netbook(s), and USB disks for test installs. Snacks will be provided.
If you can, stay after the Jam for some post-event revelry at a local establishment (location TBD).
