Ubuntu Bug Jam August 9th at SETC in Boston

You may have already read it in dholbach’s blog — yes, Massachusetts will be participating in the Ubuntu Global Bug Jam!

The Ubuntu Massachusetts Local Community Team will be holding a Bug Jam this weekend at the South End Technical Center in Boston.  This is an opportunity to collaborate and contribute to Ubuntu by triaging bugs.

The event will be held on Saturday, August 9th, 12-5pm at the SETC.

All Linux users of all skill levels are invited to participate.  There’s work to be done from testing to commenting to fixing.  Have no idea what helping with bugs entails?  We’ll explain!  (But you can start reading at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs).  A programmer and looking to fix some bugs and get those fixes into packages?  You’re welcome as well, and we can teach you a bit about the process of getting a fix into Ubuntu.  If there is some particular application you’d like to work on, please contact me.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get into contributing to Free Software because not only will there be a group of people right there to work with, but people around the world will be working on the same thing at the same time!  Online collaboration for the event will take place in #ubuntu-us-ma on irc.freenode.net and any questions we can’t field, we will forward to the appropriate channels.

Hope to see people there and excited!
