FOSSCON in Rochester, NY – THIS WEEKEND! (June 19, 2010)


FOSSCON is this weekend in Rochester, NY. Speaking at this event will be Ubuntu's own, Jorge Castro.

Jorge works on the Ubuntu Community Team, with Daniel Holbach, David Planella, and Jono Bacon. Jorge has boundless energy and a sense of humor to match. Here's what Jorge had to say on his Launchpad page:

"If you're an upstream developer I want to work with you! Need daily builds? Help with Launchpad? Have bug and patch workflow problems? Need someone to show you around how Ubuntu works and how to talk to the right people? Then I'm your man!"

So if you want to know more about Jorge, Ubuntu, Canonical, or Upstream then head to FOSSCON this weekend to find out those things and much much more!

You’re invited!

When: June 19th, 2010
