Global Jam

Fri, 26 March 2010 12:00 - Sun, 28 March 2010 20:00 UTC

The Ubuntu Global Jam is an incredible opportunity for the Ubuntu community to unite together around the weekend of 26th - 28th March 2010 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.

Testing - testing the new release and reporting your feedback.

Upgrade - upgrading to Lucid from Hardy or Karmic and reporting your upgrade experience.

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.

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

159 people from 25 LoCos and 19 countries are participating in this event!
