Ubucon Sevilla

On Sat May 5th in Sevilla, Spain, I am holding an Ubucon community event. The aim of the event is to have a full day of community based talks, discussions, BOFs and get everyone together to discuss and debate Ubuntu. Its going to be great fun, and the plan is to have a number of talks in both English and Spanish and plenty of BOF sessions about the many varied and interesting subjects that form the Ubuntu landscape.

The Ubucon Sevilla is sandwiched in between the Ubuntu Education Summit on the 3rd/4th May 2007 and the Ubuntu Developer Summit from the 6th – 11th May 2007. This is an ideal time to come over to sunny Spain and be a part of this interesting and fun event.

Like all community efforts, I need YOUR help! I am keen to hear from a number of Spanish and Non-Spanish speakers who would like to speak at the event. Talks are 50 minutes long, including questions, and I am keen to run an English track and a Spanish track. In particular, I would love to see the Spanish community talk about Spanish issues at the event as well as English and Spanish talks about Ubuntu, the community and other things. A few ideas for possible talk subjects:

  • Ubuntu
  • The Ubuntu community
  • Packaging and development
  • LoCo Teams
  • Multimedia
  • Advocacy
  • Translations
  • Local issues in spain
  • Etc…

If you are interested in speaking, see the Call For Papers page. I am really keen to see a variety of talks submitted so we can have a really interesting and varied conference.

I am also keen in having a number of informal BOF discussion sessions. If you would like to give a BOF at the event, let me know too.

All talk submissions should go to me at jono AT ubuntu DOT com.

Finally, Spanish Ubuntu fans – spread the word about the Ubucon and let people know how to be a part of it. See the Ubucon Sevilla Homepage for more details.

    Will you be speaking in Spanish? I think you should try.

    Matt – nope, that would be a crime against the language. :P

    Pity. You’re quite the jetsetter these days. I hope you’re saving up lots of air miles so you can actually have a holiday one day.

    Matt – holiday? what is this mysterious term you speak of? :P
