Announcing the First LoCo Day Event

Hello everyone,

It is my great honor to be able to announce a new Ubuntu Classroom event that will be taking place: LoCo Days! To quote the wiki, “Most Classroom sessions done in the Ubuntu community are done in English. However, we have a large LoCo community as well. LoCo Days were designed to encourage LoCo Teams to start doing more Classroom sessions in their native languages.” The first set of LoCo Days will take place from Friday, November 5th, 2010 – Sunday, November 7th, 2010. Sessions, to be given in the LoCo’s native language, will focus will be on different LoCo-related HowTos. Some possible topics might include: How to host an Ubuntu Hour, How to start a Loco team, or How to organize a release party. Sessions will be lead by groups from different LoCos; there will be very few (if any) individuals hosting sessions.

In order for this event to work, we need as many different LoCo teams to volunteer to lead sessions as possible. Sessions can take place any time during Friday, November 5th, 2010 – Sunday, November 7th, 2010, so LoCo teams should have no issue finding a convenient time. If you are interested in leading a session, please let either myself or another member of the Classroom Management Team know so that we can add you to the schedule. Please be sure to pass this announcement on to the other members of your LoCo team.
