Manchester Lucid Ubuntu Global Jam

The Ubuntu Global Jam is an incredible opportunity for the Ubuntu community to unite together around the weekend of 26th - 28th March 2010 to work together to improve Ubuntu. As of today a Manchester jam is being organised, this wiki page serves as a central location for this organisation and once something is confirmed it should be added here.

What is a Jam?

The Ubuntu Global Jam incorporates events that have been organized over the world to get Ubuntu contributors and fans together to have a great time and improve Ubuntu. Each event has one or more of our four themes:

  • Bugs - finding, triaging and fixing bugs.
  • Testing - testing the new release and reporting your feedback.
  • Upgrade - upgrading to Lucid from Hardy or Karmic and reporting your upgrade experience.
  • Documentation - writing documentation about how to use Ubuntu and how to join the community.
  • Translations - translating Ubuntu and helping to make it available in everyone's local language.
  • Packaging - work on Ubuntu packages and improve them.
  • Other - other types of contribution such as marketing, packaging, advocacy etc.
