Yakkety Yak release parties

Catalan LoCo Team celebrated on November 5th a release party of the next Ubuntu version, in that case, 16.10 Xenial Xerus, in Ripoll, such a historical place. As always, we started explaining what Ubuntu is and how it adapts to new times and devices.

FreeCad 3D design and Games were both present at the party.

A few weeks later, in December 3rd, we did another release party, this time in Barcelona.

We went to Soko, previously a chocolate factory, that nowadays is a kind of Makers Lab, very excited about free software. First, Josep explained the current developments in Ubuntu and we carried some installations on laptops.

We ate some pizza and had discussions about free software on public administrations. Apart from the usual users who came to install Ubuntu on their computers, the responsible from Soko gave us 10 laptops for Ubuntu installation too. We ended the tasks installing Wine for some Lego to run.

That’s some art that is being made at Soko.

I’m releasing that post because we need some documentation on release parties. If you need some advice on how to manage a release party, you can contact me or anyone in Ubuntu community.
