Ubuntu NEXT EGYPT TEAM MEETING: TBA (Event History...) Ubuntu

This application was reviewed on 20th of March 2012. Please check the meeting log for details.

Ubuntu-eg team has started to be a key player in the FOSS communities here in Egypt. We seek to get recognized and help other FOSS and LUG groups. We provide support in both Arabic and English languages. We constantly distribute CDs and printed material advocating Ubuntu and free software.

We aim to make Ubuntu a defacto standard through teaching it in universities so graduated student can have mentalities oriented towards Ubuntu/Linux and FOSS, hence growing up our community in Egypt and spread Ubuntu more faster.

  • We are engaged now in working on a new team structure that would allow new comers to pick up quickly the methods of our community and start working directly with the team. Another thing we started is the usage of Launchpad to track our tasks to avoid having tons of emails and phone calls. (It's still a work in progress and is subject to change)
  • Launchpad project.

  • New team structure. The structure can be summarized in the following graph:
