Effective 17 February, the Ubuntu Arizona Local Community Team (AZLOCO) will only hold on line meetings on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. The time, 9:00-9:30 pm, and of course the IRC channel, #ubuntu-us-az on freenode.net, will remain the same. This change is the result of several factors, the low attendance at the on line meetings and the apparent repetitive release of information. The meeting notes will continue to be sent to those members who have subscribed to the AZLOCO mailing list.
Anything event related. You can combine this tag with say an Ubuntu tag to show that it is an Ubuntu Event.
As some of you may already know, the Tempe Ubuntu Hour that was scheduled to meet at Xtreme Bean every 4th Thursday had been canceled because there was no one to host it. Our previous host had moved to North Phoenix. Well, pavlos has accepted the mantle and will now be hosting the Tempe Ubuntu Hour on the 4th Thursday of each month effective immediately as well as the Tempe Ubuntu Hour on the 1st Thursday of each month. Both Ubuntu Hours will meet at the Xtreme Bean, 1707 E. Southern Ave. in Tempe.
With the anticipated release of the new LTS version of Ubuntu, Bionic Beaver, the Ubuntu-Arizona Local Community Team had a Release Party on 21 April 2018 from 1400 to 1800 at the home of Walter and Ingeborg Mack in Chandler AZ. Invitations to attend were sent via the Team mailing list, announcements were made at the weekly Sunday Team meetings, and postings were placed on the Team web site. There were 12 attendees.
Canonical will be releasing Ubuntu 18.04, Bionic Beaver, on 26 April 2018. To celebrate this event Ubuntu-Arizona Local Community Team will conduct a Release Party at the home of Walter and Ingeborg Mack, 5831 W. Kesler St. Chandler, AZ on 21 April from 2-6pm. The AZLOCO/PLUG Installfest for the same day at the University of Advancing Technology will be relocated to that location also starting at 2 pm. instead of the normal 10 am. Internet will be available, installs will still be conducted and problems will be solved while we celebrate the release of Bionic Beaver and enjoy some excellent food, great camaraderie, and some serious (and some not so serious) discussions. More details to follow. Pencil in the event on your calendar now. Everyone interested in Free and Open Source Software is invited. This will be a potluck party so please bring a dish to share. For any questions, please contact email@example.com
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with the dish that you will be bringing and the number of people that will be attending. Thank you
The installfest scheduled for 06 January has been canceled because the UAT needs to use of the room that we had reserved. This is unfortunate and beyond our control. So to add some continuity to our events which have been scheduled for the first and third Saturdays of each month, we will hold an extended Ubuntu Hour/Linux get together at the Xtreme Bean, 1707 E. Southern Ave. in Tempe from 10-4 pm on 06 January. Treat it as an impromptu Installfest/Linux Workshop/Extended Ubuntu Hour/Linux get together. Attend if you can.
