Events & Presentations

During the last two years, we focused our efforts on the presentation and promotion of ubuntu in schools and universities. Our LoCo visited different Tunisian cities to present and to talk about ubuntu and free software in general. At each visit we did some presentations, we distribute CD and we animate an install party for participants. One of our pilot project was the migration of the computing center of the ENIS (National Engineering School of Sfax), where we have installed ubuntu on 150 PC (10 class rooms). Thus the majority of practical work will be done with ubuntu and with free software equivalent to proprietary software used before this migration.

13 event was held in 9 towns, 18 high schools, 2 international event, etc... All our events with reports, usually in French and in English (the complete report or an abstract), are grouped here :

LoCo Team Meetings

A monthly meeting is generally held to discuss LoCo actions and organise our activities. When needed, a non regular meeting can be organised. For each meeting we prepare an agenda and we publish minutes. Since our approval 21 meetings were organised (18 regular meetings, indicated by Ubuntu , and 3 non regular meetings, indicated by Warning /!\ ). For a full history of our meetings visit this page : Meetings. Agenda and minutes are in French. You can also see our google agenda.
