Announcing New Ubuntu Conference: The Ubucon

The Ubucon (rhymes with Rubicon) is a free conference for Ubuntuusers, developers and admins. Many many thanks to Google for hosting this.

The Ubucon will be held at Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA, August 18 and 19, the days immediately following LinuxWorld San Francisco.

The conference wiki is the center of all the action. I also put up a pointer on the Ubuntu wiki.

As you can see, the schedule's not filled in yet, but that will change as speakers are rounded up.

There is a mailing list - theubucon@linuxpip.org, and you can subscribe at
theubucon-request@linuxpip.org or go to
http://www.linuxpip.org/mailman/listinfo/theubucon

Look forward to seeing you there!

Last week, we had a Ubucon in our country: Guatemala, Central América.
It was awesome.
