Ubuntu Local Jam and Debian Bug Squashing Party

 

Ubuntu & Debian

I’m beyond thrilled along with other members of the Ubuntu Oregon LoCo to announce that Ubuntu Oregon will be working with Debian Developers to hold the first ever Ubuntu Local Jam and Debian Bug Squashing Party in Portland, OR. The event will be this coming Sunday, December 4.

This event will be held at the PuppetLabs office in downtown Portland from

10am to 5:30pm. The address is:

411 NW Park Ave
Suite 500
Portland, OR 97219

experienced developer or making your first foray into the world of Open
Source, please join us for a day of community fun!

of town, so more folks are able to attend!

    That’s excellent! Thanks a bunch for reporting about it. Is there a way for people to participate remotely? Are you all hanging out in the same IRC channel?
