Ubuntu Brasil is the team of the Ubuntu Brazilian Community. Currently we have 541 members on our team, working in translations, development, documentation, support, and promotion.

Key Details

Roadmap

  • Increase even more each team, bringing new people to help and spreading the Ubuntu philosophy
  • Website - update the content of the site.

  • Wiki - recently Canonical sysadmins have restored our admin access to wiki. For now we are deleting spam and outdated pages and planning to create and update pages to help Brazilian users.

  • Conferences - continue attending conferences as well promoting Ubuntu around the country.

  • Hangouts - continue promoting Ubuntu for enthusiasts on biweekly hangouts via Google Plus ( http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHzf2AP5kl-DHAGoB9N3zUpiAi2Ox83Gk ).

  • Ubuntu Brazil Users Map - it is a project to develop a map of Ubuntu Brazilian users ( https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-br-users-map ). The idea is to provide an easy way to locate people living at the same city than you and using Ubuntu as operating system.

Experience

Ubuntu Brasil has started about eight years ago with the creation of the Planeta Ubuntu Brasil and Wiki. Since then we have increase in size and quality with each user that Ubuntu wins in Brazil, and we like to think we had something to do with this increase.

Ubuntu Brazilian Community Structure

Each one of these subteams has one or two leaders to coordinate the team work, schedule meetings and provide support for new collaborators.
