UDS Lucid – Day 5
Very sad, it’s the last day, and it’s been an amazing week. I really feel I got more out of UDS this time. Definitely more braver in saying I’ll take on tasks knowing if I get stuck or have an issue there is someone I can poke and ask. The participation levels have been amazing both in the room and remotely. It’s been great having the IRC displayed on the screen in the room. We can see participants points and can include them in the discussion, which is what it;s all about.
Taking into account everyones opinion and helping to shape Lucid. It’s also been great to hear about what other LoCos are doing, it’s given me some ideas and I encourage other LoCos to try new events out. Doing the same talk/demo handing out a leafet can get boring and hard to get people involved. Doing something new encourages more activity, making it fun!
The big session that stood out for me today, was Ubuntu Women, our 3rd session. We did need 3 sessions to get a lot of things out in the open and be able to tackle some of the issues. It’s been interesting hearing the opinions of people taking part. Many of the men said they wanted to learn more and felt they could do this by sitting back and listening, but wanted to know how to get their female members involved or how they can help. Again, please pretty please show them the #ubuntu-women channel, or the mailing list, poke me! and I’ll talk to them, or Amber she’ll happily talk to the wall! We want to make sure as many people take part and enjoy working on the channel.
From our 3 sessions, we have clear defined and attainable goals we can achieve during Lucid. I hope many people join and take part in this great team and make these goals happen!
