Saturday evening this years LinuxTag, Europes largest open source fair, closed its doors. As LinuxTag is presented at Berlin, the “Ubuntu Berlin” was happy to support it in different activities. Let me sum up some of them:
1) Ubuntu Community booth
The “ubuntu Deutschland e.V.”, Ubuntu and Kubuntu community presented their work at a community hosted booth. A bunch of Ubuntu Berlin members supported the booth, answered hundreds of questions and helped with the proceedings.
Saturday Featured a lot of Ubuntu focussed talks. For the first time “Ubuntu Berlin” and its members hosted a remarkable amount of them, e.g.:
- Anselm Helbig – Ubuntu Berlin Lightning Talks (tmux)
- Benjamin Drung – Ubuntu in 50 minutes, Packaging for Debian and Ubuntu
- Caspar Clemens Mierau – Ubuntu Berlin Lightning Talks (Vimperator), Gnome-Do, Ubuntu in 50 minutes
- Daniel Holbach – Fixing Bugs in Ubuntu (see slides), Ubuntu in 50 minutes, Ubuntu Berlin Lightning Talks (liblaunchpad)
- Marcel Eichner – Ubuntu Berlin Lightning Talks (Franklin)
- Torsten Franz – Supporting Ubuntu
minutes before the “Ubuntu in 50 minutes” talk
3) Interviews for Radio Tux
Several members of Ubuntu Berlin gave interviews to the well known German Podcast “Radio Tux“. Daniel’s talk on bugjamming has been released already. Be sure to check the archive for other releases within the next days.
4) LinuxTag BBQ
Last but not least: The ”End of LinuxTag BBQ” at c-base, sponsored by Canonical, has been a great success again. Three barbacues and about ten “Grillmeister” (you cannot translate this) provided more than hundred visitors with tasty food. Members of various types of open source communities had interesting chats while relaxing at the banks of the Spree.
As Ubuntu Berlin’s support for the LinuxTag continuously increased within the last years, I am sure next year will even better. We’ll see.
