Ubuntu Colombia 2016 - 2018

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 :)

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.

Fundacion CaribeMesh and Ubuntu Colombia

Ubuntu Colombia y la Fundación CaribeMesh se encuentran trabajando desde hace 5 meses en un Proyecto de Educación con Software Libre para las escuelas de escasos recursos de colombia. Este proyecto empezó con un piloto que se esta realizando en la Ciudad de Cartagena de indias, Colombia.

El piloto comenzó en un Colegio en el Sur de la ciudad de Cartagena, en el Colegio Ciudadeka 2000 el cual empezamos realizando una encuesta para ver la posibilidad de realizar cursos y actividades en el colegio. Estos fueron los resultados. Ver Resultados..

Ver noticia..

En estos momento estamos trabajando con al rededor de 60 estudiantes de los grados 9 y 10 de la institución, los cuales se les esta brindando un curso de Software Libre y se realizo la migración de la sala de sistemas a Edubuntu.

Algunos estudiantes estuvieron presentes en la UbuConLA 2014, el cual fue una experiencia enriquecedora para ellos.

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.
