It’s that time of the Ubuntu cycle where Ubuntu Global Jam takes place. It is an event in which our global community gets together in their local area to help make Ubuntu better, taking part on line and face to face over one weekend. The Ubuntu Global Jam is a great opportunity to get together and meet other Ubuntu fans and contributors, make new friends in your area, and help to make the next Ubuntu release the best it can be so we can bring Free Software to the masses.
The Ubuntu Global Jam takes place between the 2nd – 4th September 2011.
