The Ubuntu Hour

The idea behind Ubuntu Hour is public! We are trying to promote Ubuntu to the general public and getting them wondering what else is out there.

Find one near you in the list of Ubuntu Events


  • Head over to a public place (like a local coffee shop, etc) where you'll hang out for 1 hr. every week or every other week, you decide.
  • Wear something with the Ubuntu logo or have a visible Ubuntu sticker on your laptop (if you bring one).
  • When/if you show up, you agree to the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.

  • Anyone can start an Ubuntu Hour, anywhere, anytime.
  • Remember this is a social event, be approachable!

Keep it simple. Don't make this "How" section any longer than it needs to be. Just add your Ubutu Hour below, including location (address+city), day of week + hour, and your name, maybe a link.

Don't forget to document! Let your LoCo know about your event, blog about it, write in a mailing list, or any other way you can. If you are a team contact, make sure your event is listed in the LoCo directory.

note: people may want to support Free and Open by using OpenStreetMap for their map locations. (some areas are well supported and others are not)
