''Ubuntu pro omnibus, omnes pro Ubuntu!''
Switzerland has, although a small country, no less than 4 official languages with a wealth of dialects and variations. To have a common ground, the official communication language of our LoCo is English. For most Swiss Ubuntu-users, support and information in their own (main) language is provided by the French, German and Italian speaking communities. (Any takers for a Romansh initiative?)
The Swiss team would like, however, to enhance communication between Swiss Ubuntu users/contributors, and arrange local meetings and provide local support.
Please see the Meetings page for more information.
Mailing list, IRC channel and Forum
Please join our mailing list where we coordinate efforts and spread information among us. Note that this is not a list for normal technical support questions - unless it involves, for instance, Swiss keyboards or location
Also, an IRC channel has been created on Freenode, feel free to join the #ubuntu-ch channel for chats and discussions on our Ubuntu activities. Detailed instructions on how to join the IRC channel with Pidgin, Ubuntu's default chat client, can be found on our IRC page
A friendly German speaking social community can be found at ubunteros.ch.
Anyone interested to give support (either free or for a fee), hand out CD, organise a meeting and more can enter his contact details in the Regional Contacts List, sorted by postal code. Don't forget to include a valid link or e-mail address so that people can actually contact you! And please join the mailing list!
Besides the regular Meetings this is a list of activities that are currently planned:
Festival du développement durable in Geneva
The event will be held on 13-14 May. For more information please visit: FDD 2011

We have set up an Ideas page which is intended for your brain dump and discussion regarding future SwissTeam activities.
