Announcing Open Week

Every cycle we have a week’s worth of IRC sessions for users of Ubuntu and/or people who want to get more involved in Ubuntu. Think of it as “kicking the tires” on the community, see if you like it, and

then finding something you’re interested in and going and doing it. We’ve just posted the initial schedule here:

Also, don’t miss the Spanish Open Week!

Here’s a quick FAQ:

Is it too late to run a session?

Nope, we can always add extra sessions if we get more volunteers, so if you want to run a session then get a hold of us! This is the week after release so the buzz of new users will be exciting, a perfect opportunity to teach a class!

I want an Open Week in my own language!

Grab a wiki page and Just Do It(tm). Let us know and we’ll help get the word out. If you can’t find enough speakers for a whole week then just do what sessions you can.

Hey no fair, my *buntu (and/or other team) is missing!

We always want to use OpenWeek to get more users interested in your project and to find volunteers. Ping me for a session and we’ll get you on the schedule.

Sneaky, you scheduled me for a session and didn’t even ask!

Likely you’ve done a session in the past and people demanded more of you. Don’t be so awesome next time.

If there’s any questions or if you’re unsure if you want to commit just stop by #ubuntu-community-team on freenode IRC and ask!
