The first Ubuntu Global Bug Jam will take place from Friday 8th August to Sunday 10th August 2008. So, what is the Ubuntu Global Bug Jam? Put simply, it is a world-wide online and face-to-face event to get people together to fix Ubuntu bugs - we want to get as many people online fixing bugs, having a great time doing so, and putting their brick in the wall for free software.
This is not only a great opportunity to really help Ubuntu, but to also get together with other Ubuntu fans to make a difference together, either via your LoCo team, your LUG, other free software group, or just getting people together in your house/apartment to fix bugs and have a great time.
If you are in a LoCo Team, the Ubuntu Global Bug Jam is a great opportunity for LoCo Teams to get together and have a physical bug-jam. To get started there is a Running a Bug Jam guide, which offers some helpful advice for getting your jam organised. If you are in a Linux User Group why not try and organise a bug jam for your LUG too?
If you are planning on organising a jam for your group, just follow these steps:
We will be posting more information about how the global bug jam will work closer to the time.
