I got involved with the Ubuntu Community right before the Dapper Release, as I started to contribute with the Ubuntu Brazilian Portuguese Translators team.
On April help some friends in ESLAM (Encontro de Software Livre do Amazonas - Free Software Meeting) generating a .deb file of Java and instaling in some PCs.
On July 6th I was accepted to the Ubuntu Brazilian Portuguese Translators team based on my translation efforts, becoming one of the administrators 8 months later.
