The Ubuntu Testing Days are an open, inclusive and safe space to get started contributing with free software communities.

Every Friday will be a testing day, and we will host a session in https://ubuntuonair.com. On each session, we will invite a developer from an active and interesting free software project to show us the things they have been working on recently. Then we will show a tool or process we can use to contribute with their current release cycle. During the day we will be available in https://rocket.ubuntu.com/channel/community to help anybody who wants to start contributing.

The sessions will be focused on testing as an introduction to the free software world, but we will also cover other things like translations, triaging, packaging, automation, bug fixing and new feature development.
