In Copenhagen on the UDS was a communities track and as a result some guys want to know what the locogroups currently do. So I write a little report of my activities in Ubuntu in this year.

At first let me tell you that I love when people come together and speak about Ubuntu and other open source things. If I have the time I go to a lot of meetings around Ubuntu. At the end of last year I moved from Berlin to Lüneburg, a small city near Hamburg and I had change my job. In July I have to change my job again. So I have had a lot to do with moving and my jobs. But this was not a reason to say, let’s make a little break with Ubuntu. My activities in this great community didn’t suffered about that – or only a little bit. ;)

This year was my main work for Ubuntu as a projectlead from ubuntuusers.de ( the official portal in Germany ). Another activity was writing news about Ubuntu for Ikhaya, the news-magazine in ubuntuusers.de. Also I worked as programmer in Ruby on Rails for communtu.org where you can individualize your Ubuntu installation. In the locogroup of Germany I coordinate exhibition activities and the spread of the Ubuntu CDs.

Here is the list of my activities in 2012:

  • member of the ubuntuusers.de team as projectlead
  • write articles about Ubuntu on http://ikhaya.ubuntuusers.de
  • work as a programmer on the communtu project to individualize the Ubuntu installation
  • organize the re-approval for the german loco team
  • presenting Ubuntu at Cebit in Hannover
  • presenting Ubuntu at Chemitzer Linux Tage
  • presenting Ubuntu at the LinuxTag Berlin
  • write an article about Communtu in “Linux intern” magazine
  • write an article about ubuntuusers.de in “Linux intern” magazine
  • organize the ubucon – german conference of Ubuntu users
  • speaker at the Software Freedom Day in Hamburg about Ubuntu and community
  • presenting Ubuntu at the Software Freedom Day in Hamburg

And in 2013?

In 2012 the activities were great and very hard. For the most things I didn’t have enough time. In 2013 I will spend a much time in Ubuntu, too. But I think that I do some things different.

Things I will do like in 2012:

  •  write articles about Ubuntu on http://ikhaya.ubuntuusers.de
  • presenting Ubuntu at the LinuxTag Berlin
  • presenting Ubuntu at the Software Freedom Day in Hamburg or in another city
  • meet other in local ubuntu or linux groups
  • speaker at the ubucon

Things I will maybe do in 2013:

  •  member of the ubuntuusers.de team as projectlead
  • work as a programmer on the communtu project to individualize the Ubuntu installation
  • presenting Ubuntu at Chemitzer Linux Tage

Things I will not do in 2013 again:

  •  presenting Ubuntu at Cebit in Hannover
  • writing article in commerzial magazins

Things I will do in 2013 that I havend done in 2012:

  •  speaker about Ubuntu and presenting Ubuntu at Froscon

Okay, that is only a plan. ;) Maybe I get more plans in the nearly future. If you have any questions please leave a comment or write me a mail.
