Colorado LoCo Team
The Colorado Ubuntu Linux Team is an Ubuntu "Local Community Team" (aka CoLoCo Team) that advocates the use of Open Source software and Ubuntu Linux in the State of Colorado, US. This is done through CD distribution, team expansion, user-base support, and outreach programs.
The Colorado Local Community Team is not meant to replace our local LUGs but rather enhance their overall experience by having a dedicated place to discuss, contribute, and gain support from local Ubuntu users.
While we were not the first Local Community Team in the USA, we were the first to complete the official process and become fully recognized by the Ubuntu Community Council. We are a member of the US Team mentoring program.
If you are interested in joining our team please apply on our Launchpad page and then subscribe to the mailing list below. All that is required is residency in or near Colorado and a desire to see Ubuntu grow.
Members must sign the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. We encourage members to do this via Launchpad. Then please edit this wiki page and add your name to the team list further down.
What We Do
- Educate the public about Ubuntu
Supply Ubuntu (CDs & CD images)
- Support Ubuntu Locally
- Conduct outreach programs
- Ubuntu Activism
- Partner with local businesses and Educational institutions to further Ubuntu
