UKSkills is an offshoot of the UK Ubuntu Team. It allows all users to offer and look up particular skills and resources needed for your event / project. Whilst technical help is available through the support channels, UKSkills is here to help you with practical side that's needed to help you realise your project. It may be as simple as being able to design/print A4 flyers or have access to a CD duplicator or are being pretty snazzy with an iron to put artwork onto t-shirts, it all helps!

Listed below are the users who are offering their knowledge, skills and resources to help with your event and/or project. Please feel free to email me with your name, contact details and skill base you're willing to offer to the Ubuntu-UK community. (or edit this page as required)

Thanks in advance.
