By | 27 August 2008

I am thrilled to announce El Salvador Ubuntu LoCo Team will be hosting an Ubucon El Salvador next Saturday September 6th!

I’ll be spending next week in San Salvador and I thought it would be nice to meet some Ubunteros there. I wrote to their mailing list, one thing led to another and *boom* ! Having presented at Ubucons in Seville, New York City and San Francisco before I am really happy to add one to my list ! I am trying to think of any sentence in this post I wouldn’t end with an exclamation mark but I can’t !!!

A few emails and IRC chats were enough to settle on having a round table to discuss Ubuntu’s place in free software, Celvin Rivas will also be presenting about the state of Ubuntu in El Salvador. If there’s enough people interested there’s discussion about having some workshops – gotta love last minute things :)

From “Running an Ubucon“:

An Ubucon is a community driven, community organised event that is all about Ubuntu. These events often include a number of speakers, BOF sessions, demos, social events and more, and they are excellent ways to grow the Ubuntu community in your area, and to build an interesting and fun event. Ubucons are different to large Linux expos and conferences in that they are uniquely community focused and driven, and uniquely Ubuntu.

    Hello Fabian,

    I am really impressed by this OS, I just got rid of M$ WIN? on all computers at home, and I am starting an effort to migrate computers at my workplace to Ubuntu. Countries like ours can benefit greatly moving to open source software (there’s a lot of hi-quality oss around), and sadly our governments (at least mine – I am from Guatemala) are pushing to lock in to M$ software to run public offices, that can be easily run on Linux, spending money so needed in other areas.

    It would be great to have you here in Guatemala, and start working on a Guatemalan Ubucon.

    Thanks for all your efforts, keep it up !!
