Ubuntu Global Jam for Vivid


I write you in your capacity as LoCo admin/contact, because this cycle's
Ubuntu Global Jam is announced and will happen on 6-8 February 2015.
It's the event where a lot of Ubuntu LoCo teams get together to work on
 Ubuntu together, to promote it and to have fun. As always we have some
good documentation up at [1] explaining how to  best go about planning
the event for your LoCo team. We also provide a short video to explain
the most basic steps [2].
It's a good idea to reach out to your team as soon as you can, find out
who can help with the planning of which bits and also to find out who's
interested in doing what. Once you have at least the basic details
ready, add your event to [3]. We just announced the LoCo Team Global Jam
packs. If you want to have one of those, check out [4] to find out how
to request one. Do it as soon as you can or timing will get tight. I'm
sure you are going to have a great time with your team, so please share
your story about how the whole event went. The world wants to know about
all the great things you do in your country. If you have any questions,
please feel free to get in touch. Another good place to be signed up to
is the loco-contacts@ mailing list [5], which you should be signed up to
in any case. :-)

What we are going to do as well is a Google Hangout on Ubuntu-on-Air. If
you want to get a quick run-through on how these events work or if you
want to ask all the questions you might have, check out our calendar [6]
to find out when we are going to hang out. If you are up for real-time
discussion, check out #ubuntu-locoteams on
freenode [7].

One last point: promote, share, re-share all the great things you see!
