Ubuntu Global Jam

Fri, 01 March 2013 17:00 - Sun, 03 March 2013 23:45 UTC

The Ubuntu Global Jam is an incredible opportunity for the Ubuntu community to unite together around the weekend of 1st - 3rd March 2013 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 organised 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:

  • Ubuntu Touch - Show off the new Ubuntu Touch developer preview running on a phone or tablet, and help others flash it onto their devices.

  • Bugs - finding, triaging and fixing bugs.

  • Testing - testing the new release and reporting your feedback.

  • Documentation - writing documentation about how to use Ubuntu and how to join the community.

  • Translations - translating Ubuntu and helping to make it available in everyone's local language.

  • Packaging - work on Ubuntu packages and improve them.

  • Other - other types of contribution such as marketing, packaging, advocacy etc.

If you have any questions about how to organise a Global Jam for your team, feel free to ask on #locoteams or on the loco contacts mailing list.

LoCos should not feel required to support all themes, but the Global Jam can be used as an opportunity to introduce members to different aspects of the community

144 people from 27 LoCos and 23 countries are participating in this event!
