Linux News Today: Ubuntu Online Summit 2015 Was the Most Attended UOS Event of All Times
On November 17, Canonical’s David Planella has published his bi-monthly report about the work done by members of the Ubuntu Community Team during the first two weeks of November 2015.
According to Mr. Planella, the team managed to host yet another successful UOS (Ubuntu Online Summit) event between November 3-5, which appears to be one of the most crowded UOS events in history, for which the full video recordings and tracks summaries have been published.
Ubuntu has been accepted into the upcoming Google Code-In contest, which will take place between December 7, 2015 and January 25, 2016, so the team has started preparing their Google Code-In application, as well as to search for mentors from the Ubuntu community to help them during the contest.
Moreover, the Ubuntu Community Team successfully organized the Ubuntu Community Council election, activated the global meetup.com account for LoCo team groups who want to participate in testing Ubuntu using Pilot, define the UbuCon Summit sponsorship opportunities and continue preparing for the upcoming event.
Also, they managed to finalize the UbuCon @ FOSSETCON schedule for November 19, 2015. “Here are some highlights of what the Ubuntu Community Team at Canonical together with some other community members have been working on in the last two weeks,” said David Planella, Ubuntu Community Team Manager at Canonical.
