We need a volunteer to summarize our activities each month. see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ZATeam/TeamReports
Send in your stories
Highlight projects where we know of ubuntu-za team member involvement and opportunities for further involvement
Tell us about any upcoming events or those that have just happened.
We should try to get some feedback from guys like tumbleweed and highvoltage who attended the UDS (A five day event for Ubuntu contributors in Oakland, California on 7 - 11 May 2012). Who else was there and who's planning to go to the next one?
Discuss any plans for UH's
Get some feedback about the Ubuntu Hour event on 2 June in Rosebank (see: http://bit.ly/JD0qCS) from queery & HawkiesZA.
Plans for install fests in the different regions depending on availability of cd's
We'll be running a two-day workshop at the Department of Information Technology, Cape Peninsula University of Technology in the first week of August. If you would be interested in giving a talk, please drop me an email. And I would appreciate it if you could refer to me anyone you think might be interested.
Any interesting topic -on FoSS (packaging, cloud/virtualization, software development, e.t.c.)- would definitely be accepted. It is an event aimed at bringing together industry, developers, educators and the community and any other interested parties to discuss open source, open web, and academic/industry partnerships.
You will be presenting to both the academic staff and postgraduate students in the Department of IT. Hence, the sophistication level has got to be very high. The duration of your talk is 30min., 15min. for demo and 15min. for Q&A.
Hey all, lets try revive our LPI classes (see: http://linux-studies.za.net )
