It is finally official, this Sunday, October 4, 2009 from 12:00pm until 8:45pm, members of the Ubuntu community will be meeting at the Schaumburg Library, which is of course located at the southwest corner of Roselle and Schaumburg roads in Schaumburg, IL.
If you are planning on attending, please join us in #ubuntu-chicago on IRC (Freenode network), Send a message to our mailing list, or leave a comment in this post.
This event will be for everyone! Whether you are interesting in trying out Ubuntu, are just now learning how to use Ubuntu or Linux, or are a seasoned hacker, we would like you to join us. We will be giving overviews of the various tasks carried out in the development and maintenance of Ubuntu covering everything from totally beginner tasks all the way up to tasks for seasoned hackers. Notable members of the Ubuntu community that will be present include Jim Campbell, Nathan Handler, and others. Seeing as there are 2 Canonical employees in the Chicagoland area, who knows, they may even show up!
If you have any questions, please comment here, the mailing list, or IRC. Thanks, and I can’t wait to see you all!
NOTE: The event will be at the Schaumburg Library and not at Pumping Station One. The Schaumburg Library won out in a vote due to everything happening so quickly. We appologize to the PSOne folks and look forward to sharing space and working together in the future!
