Maverick Meerkat Release Parties in the UK
This weekend the date on Sunday will be 10/10/10 and this being a rather special number it has been declared a global day of doing for reducing carbon outputs and participating in environmentally worthy projects as well as a good day to get married as 101010 in binary is 42 in decimal it has also been declared fourty two day in celebration of the Hitchhiker books of Douglas Adams. We will be doing something much more important however as it is the release day of Ubuntu 10.10 the Maverick Meerkat. In the UK there will be a release party on Sunday, which is also a 42 day celebration including screening of the HHGTTG film. The event will continue into the evening and I am sure a good time will be had by all those who don’t come dressed as Marvin the paranoid android.
A somewhat more civilized and sensible event follows on Tuesday 12th at Fossbox in London, mainly aimed at charities and the voluntary sector, introducing attendees to the Ubuntu desktop.
On Wednesday 13th there is another event, this one hosted by University College London and aimed mostly at students, but open to all.
On Saturday 16th in Swindon there will be demos and info about Ubuntu at the Museum of Computing, again this event is open to all.
If you are in the area of any of these events then do pop along, either if you haven’t used Ubuntu before and want to find out more, or if you are a seasoned veteran and want to meet other people in your area and talk about Ubuntu.
If you are wondering why there is a bit of a London focus to the events (apart from the Swindon one of course) and you want an event in a city near you then don’t forget *you* can organise events, and ask for help in the ubuntu-uk mailing list to gather support for an event where you want it.
