Ubuntu Colombia 2010 - 2012

Ubuntu Colombia Reapproval

Ubuntu Colombia is one of the most traditional LoCo Teams within the regional and global communities, specially with the Spanish language ones. As Ubuntu Colombia is conscious about the importance to keep being recognized as an active and official LoCo Team, we've created this wiki page to summarize the main activities that we've done during the last two years.

Ubuntu Members list

These are the Ubuntu Members currently members of Ubuntu Colombia LoCo Team:


Ubuntu Colombia is being administered by the council, composed by official community members. Within its tasks, it should help fulfilling the community's interests in general, serve as support for different activities and events held all over the country, look for a harmony and orderly development in the community growth and help in establishing cooperation agreements between different LoCo Teams and communities within Colombia and other countries, within other several tasks.

Once the current re-approval process is finished, there would be a new council to be elected. Big Grin :)

Looking for a viral distribution way of spreading Ubuntu, we've created some videos available in our YouTube's channel, where you'll find videos promoting Global Jam, Ubuntu Hour, Final users experiences, workshops and conferences given by the community.

One of the most popular and interesting videos is this one about a newcomer lawyer to Ubuntu, please check it right here:

Ubuntu Experience Video


Ubuntu Colombia from its inception started a work model based on projects looking to fulfill the typical needs. At this moment the projects are maintained and working according to the participant members pace, but its importance is growing.

Bogota-Mesh and Ubuntu Colombia

One of our brother communities is Bogota-mesh, this community is looking forward to bring free wi-fi networks to several locations around our city and the rest of Colombia. Several Ubuntu Colombia members belong to this community so there're some wi-fi nodes contributed by both UCO and BMESH members.

Social Networks

Since last year, Ubuntu Colombia decided to keep itself closer to our users no matter where they were located. This strategy led us to an intensive social networks use, spreading the word about Ubuntu and free software. The accomplishments of this work are testified on the next images.
