LucidReleaseParties

Revision 28 as of 2010-04-07 03:27:51

Clear message

Lucid Lynx is coming, scheduled for release in April 2010. To celebrate the new release the community is planning release parties which mainly take place in the period of 29th april - 2nd May.

For every Ubuntu release we like to organise 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 organisers, 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", "2010" "10.04" and "lucid". 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 "Lucid Release Party Photo" -- ensure that you specify which LoCo Team party it is at.

Proposals/Discussion

If you're still in the process of organizing something and want a call for discussion, put that there. If you see something here in your area, you probably already have enough people for a meet-up so finalize it!
