JauntyReleaseParties

JauntyJackalope is coming, scheduled for release in April 2009.

For every Ubuntu release we like to organize parties all over the world. At these parties everyone is welcome and we get together to celebrate, meet new friends and often introduce people new to Ubuntu to our community and our Operating System. Release parties are not only a great way to meet people but they are a lot of fun!

If you want to organise a release party:

If you have a release party scheduled, be sure to:

  • Add it to this page. Ensure you add the name(s) of the organizers, preferably with email addresses.
  • Blog about it, advertise it, tell your friends, tell local media, tell podcasts and otherwise promote it.
  • Join the IRC channel #ubuntu-release-party on irc.freenode.net
  • If you post photos to Flickr, please tag them with "ubuntu", "release", "party", "2009" "9.04" and "Jaunty". Jono Bacon the Ubuntu Community Manager is wanting to put together a collage of release party group photos, so take a group photo of your party people and email jono AT ubuntu DOT com with a link to the photo online and the subject "Jaunty Release Party Photo" -- ensure that you specify which LoCo Team party it is at.

In celebration of the Jaunty release, from 4pm on Saturday the 25th of April, Sydney's Ubuntu users and developers alike will be gathering down on Darling Harbour's King St Wharf, at the popular James Squire Brewhouse [2]. Those with Ubuntu t-shirts are encouraged to wear them, and daring partygoers may even choose to dress up as with antler headbands or hats (like those ones from Christmas) as tribute to the mythical Jackalope. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/event.php?eid=72135662578&ref=nf
