Ubuntu California is a group of volunteers who advocate and promote Ubuntu and Free Software in California. We attend and plan events statewide, contact and work with LUGs and other local groups, and act as the public face of the Ubuntu community in California. The group is open to everybody in the state with an interest in spreading and discussing Ubuntu.

==== November 2007: Installfest for Gutsy ====

Our first event was an installfest to celebrate the Gutsy release. We had some difficulty getting a location pinned down. This event was finally held as a session at BarCampLA and went moderately well even though no installation was actually done. !BarCamps aren't conducive to events like this.

==== June 2008: Presentation at the North Orange County Computer Club ====
||<tablestyle="float:right;">{{attachment:noccc_presentation.jpg|photo from NOCCC presentation}}||
The North Orange County Computer Club asked us to give a presentation about Linux and Ubuntu. There were about 50 people in attendance and we handed out a number of CDs and business cards. The audience was mostly unaware of linux and open source in general, and seemed enthusiastic about the concept of Linux.

Experience

November 2007: Installfest for Gutsy

Joe, Nathan, Neal, and Seth at BarCampLA

Our first event was an installfest to celebrate the Gutsy release. We had some difficulty getting a location pinned down. This event was finally held as a session at BarCampLA and went moderately well even though no installation was actually done. BarCamps aren't conducive to events like this.
