Subject: Invitation to participate in the Ubuntu Global Jam


I just wanted to reach out to you as a leader in the Ubuntu LoCo
Community to see if you would be interested in organizing an Ubuntu
Global Jam (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam) event between 1st
- 3rd April 2011. http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/

The Ubuntu Global Jam is a worldwide event in which Ubuntu LoCo Teams
get together at a local venue and work on Ubuntu, get know each other,
and otherwise just have a lot of fun! These events are simple to
organize, a great way of meeting people in your area, and a great way
of learning (at many of these events people share skills, techniques
and more about using and contributing to Ubuntu).

This Ubuntu Global Jam is also a particularly important one. Ubuntu
11.04 Natty Narwhal is shaping up to be a stunning release, and we are
all putting a lot of focus in ensuring that Unity gets lots of
testing, and our awesome LoCo community is helping with this.
Organizing an Ubuntu Global Jam event is a great opportunity to do
some of this testing and provide feedback to help make Natty better. I
strongly believe that this Ubuntu release is going to really help
Ubuntu bring Free Software to the masses. :-)

You can see the list of current events planned at
http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/global/567/detail/ and we would love to
encourage you to organize and event and participate!

> Organizing An Event <

It is really simple. Here is how:

 1. Pick a date (a day between the 1st - 3rd April 2011) and choose a
venue. The venue can simply be a coffee shop or bar that you all meet
at, or something more structured like a college or university. Many
teams just pick a coffee shop (not needing to inform the owners) and
just all agree to all meet up at the same time, date and location.

 2. Add your event to loco.ubuntu.com. To do this, go to
http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/global/567/detail/, make sure you are
signed in and then use the Add Team Event page to add your event.
Note: you need to be a member of your LoCo Team in Launchpad to add an
event to loco.ubuntu.com.

 3. Finally, spread the word! Blog about it, post about it on
Twitter/identi.ca (be sure to use the #ugj hashtag!), post about the
event to your team's mailing list, put posters up around your local
area and more.

...and then, show up on the day of your event and have a great time!

Thanks in advance if you do organize an event, and we look forward to
reading more about your event online!
