Ubuntu South Africa release parties

Jonathan Carter already wrote about the Johannesburg release party. Here are his photos from that event.

I went to the Cape Town event which was held at Camps Bay High School’s tuXlab – an Ubuntu-powered school lab. We had about 30 people attending, which was awesome, considering that only a few signed up on the planning wiki page.

We distributed CDs, talked about hardware issues, and did several installs. I took some photos, and Reenen Laurie has posted his as well.

Thanks to:

  • Eleanor Lenders of Inkululeko for arranging the venue, posting signs, fetching pizza and going in search of balloons!
  • Rob Burger, the sysadmin of the CBHS tuXlab for spending the whole of Saturday upgrading machines to Intrepid so we could have some freshly installed machines to use – and for burning CDs.
  • Andy Rabagliati for organising the event and handling the complaints about bluetooth so well…
  • Everyone who attended! This community is about you!

It was great to have the event at a tuXlab, and it’s definitely worth holding our release parties at the same, or similar, tuXlabs in the future.

On that note, these school labs are largely supported by volunteers, so if you are available to help, please speak up on the ubuntu-za mailing list.
