Welcome to the AZLOCO Other Team Events page. AZLOCO mans information booths at local fairs, conventions, and other get togethers to distribute information on Ubuntu and Free and Open Source Software as well as the Team and its activities. We conduct presentations on Ubuntu, Linux in general, and related subjects on request. We will also conduct Installfests and/or Linux Workshops at remote locations when requested.
