UDS – Day 4
It’s the second last day of UDS in sunny Barcelona, the week has flow by. There has been much discussion, brain storming and mingling taking place through the week, during the day and in the evening time over dinner. I’ve been lucky to combine my summer holiday and hanging out with some awesome geeks. Win 🙂
On todays schedule we have the following:
- The Burnout Cycle (presentation)
- Better LoCo Team Development Participation
- Community Participation In Translations Templates
- Community Council Review
- Ubuntu Developer Channel
- Remote Participation at UDS
So, how does one get LoCo community involvement, how do you get interaction, feedback organsie events. It’s very hard starting off as you may not know who to talk to or approach. A great resouce is the #ubuntu-locoteams channel. Even if you’re already established, you might be going stale, low particpation at turning up to events. Why not ask other LoCo’s what they are doing, I suggested geeknic and a lot of folks were interested in it. A day out away from the laptops and a nice way to meet people face to face. Find more information here.
Now I was very lucky to attend UDS and participate, but not everyone can. Remote participation is encourage, though perhaps it could be a bit better know. All of the talks are streamed so anyone can listen in and intereact via channel and comment on the discusion.
We also got to take a group pic, savage amount of people from all over the world involved in Ubuntu in one way or another and I got to meet them.
