Definitely. I found giving talks about "Ubuntu Development Overview" to
be very satisfying. There's usually a huge interest in them.

Also I found that a quick demo of how to fix a small bug or how helping
out with simple tasks can already benefit the entire distro inspires a
number of attendants to try it out and wanting to learn some more.

There are already a number of presentations out there:
 * https://code.launchpad.net/presentations
 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Presentations
 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Recipes

What attracted me to Ubuntu was its openness and the active call for
help and the active demonstration that my help was appreciated. An
encouraging talk in a LoCo definitely helps with that. :-)

Have a great day,
