This Sunday, December 16th, 2007 from 10am until 4pm, Central Standard Time, myself and the Ubuntu Chicago group, as well as help from the College of DuPage Linux Users’ Group, will be holding our first ever “Packaging Jam.”
What exactly is a packaging jam? It will be an all day session in which a couple of Ubuntu MOTUs, myself and Mario (superm1) will teach the essence of packaging for Ubuntu in order to get new packages into the repositories, how to merge, how to submit patches, and then some. Mario will be traveling the day prior, so we are hoping that he will be there, if not, then you have to look at my ugly mug all day 🙂
The location of this packaging jam will be at the College of DuPage main campus in Glen Ellyn. Here is the address:
College of DuPage
427 Fawell Blvd.
Glen Ellyn, IL 60137
You can find directions HERE. The room is in the Student Resource Center, the big white building, and is in room 1544.
There is a train to Glen Ellyn from the city, so if you need a ride, pop into #ubuntu-chicago on irc.freenode.net or send an email to our list at ubuntu-us-chicago AT lists DOT ubuntu DOT com.
Hope to see you there!
