Look at this man. Do you recognize him? does he look familiar? If not you should. His name is David Planella and he works on my team at Canonical as the horseman responsible for ensuring we have a rocking Ubuntu translations community. He is doing a stella job.
As part of his role I have asked him to contribute to making the incredible Ubuntu LoCo Community rock too. For a long time now we have said that what the community needs is a regular stream of case studies of the great work our incredible LoCo teams are doing. Well, I have asked David to write and release a case study every two weeks as part of his work. This case study will appear on The Fridge.
While David has many talents, mind-reading is not one of them. As such, LoCo superstars, he needs to hear your stories. If you have organized an event, performed some work/advocacy in your local community, have built some resources, performed meetings or installfests or otherwise have an interesting story to tell, please [email David](david.planella AT ubuntu DOT com). This is a great way to (a) build awareness of your team and (b) build awareness of the wider Ubuntu community. David will hear your story and write the article.
Also folks, please point your LoCo teams to this post – we need to raise awareness of these articles across the community. So here are the essential steps:
- Think of something interesting your LoCo has done.
- Email David.
I can’t wait to read the stories!
