Ubuntu Global Jam – Natty Narwhal

I just sent out the email announcement to the relevant local mailing lists about the upcoming Ubuntu Global Jam for Natty Narwhal. Below is a copy of the announcement.

Ubuntu Global Jam for Ubuntu 11.04 – Natty Narwhal
April 3rd, 12noon – 5pm
SRT Solutions, 206 S. Fifth Ave in Ann Arbor
RSVP: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/team/779/detail/

The next release of Ubuntu will be one of the most ambitious releases yet. By replacing the default interface with Unity, changing to the newly released LibreOffice Suite, and upgrading the default python version to 2.7, this version of Ubuntu promises to be a spectacular upgrade.

Because of all these major overhauls, it is important to get as many people as possible testing, reporting bugs, triaging, and bug fixing before final release day. Come to the Michigan LoCo’s Ubuntu Global Jam to help ensure this release is the best it can be.

We will be doing test installs and upgrades, hardware compatibility checking, along with some bug reporting and triaging. No prior experience is required; we’ll be working together and in teams to help get everyone up to speed and contributing.

Bring your laptop(s), netbook(s), and USB disks for test installs. Snacks will be provided.

If you can, stay after the Jam for some post-event revelry at a local establishment (location TBD).

flattr this!
