Hi everyone,

UbuCon at SCALE has been a long time event for us, but as you might
know we're now getting even more support from Canonical this year for
what we're calling the UbuCon Summit. This includes a keynote by Mark
Shuttleworth and several key people from Canonical coming in to give
talks. Of all the UbuCons in the world, I feel very fortunate that the
community team at Canonical has selected an UbuCon right here in
California to test their first UbuCon Summit format!

As in years past, Richard Gaskin and Nathan Haines are playing key
roles in organizing. Michael Hall of Canonical has sent the following
to help spread the word, I hope you can join us and participate :)

I wanted to remind you all of the UbuCon Summit[1] we're hosting in
Pasadena, California this January. It is a two day event, co-hosted with
the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE)[2] on Jan. 21 and 22. We have
some great speakers lined up for it already, including Mark
Shuttleworth, developers from Canonical and leaders from the Ubuntu
community[3]. We will also have an Ubuntu booth for all 4 days of SCALE,
where we will be showing off the new Ubuntu phones, convergence and IoT

We need your help spreading the word about this event, so that everybody
who might want to attend knows about it. If you are in the Southern
California area, please let local technology and students groups know
about it. Share the links below to mailinglists and forums where you
think people might be interested in it (but be respectful, not spammy).
And if you post about it on social media, try and tag Ubuntu in it and
include the hashtag #ubucon.

We are also still looking for sponsors[4] for UbuCon, to help pay for
the rooms at the event, as well as sending more Ubuntu Members to the
event. And as a reminder, if a company pays for an Ubuntu Member to
attend (whether they are an employee or not) they qualify as an "In
Kind" sponsor and can have their logo listed on the sponsors page of the
ubucon.org website.

UbuCon is a free event that is open to anybody, but we do as that you
register[5] first so that we know how many attendees to expect. We also
encourage you to stay for all of SCALE if you can, the UBNTU code will
give you a 50% discount on your registration for that.

We look forward to seeing you there. The more people who attend the
better it will be for everybody, so please help us spread the word.
