Ubuntu is a world-class operating system that makes computing easy and simple. But starting out can be intimidating. Ubuntu Hour makes it easy to get started.

Your local Ubuntu Hour is a time and place where some Ubuntu users get together to chat for a bit and have some coffee or tea. They are more than happy to talk to you about what Ubuntu is, answer any questions, provide a free CD so you can try or install it, and help you get things up and running. They can also share some of the tips and tricks they've used to make their computers more convenient.

You're free to join us at any of the times below. Say hi and feel free to bring a portable computer if you have it.

Current Ubuntu Hour events in California:

Lake Forest
Every Thursday at 6pm
Panera Bread - 23592 Rockfield Blvd., Lake Forest, CA - http://ur1.ca/0cec5
http://www.yelp.com/biz/panera-bread-lake-forest

San Francisco
Every fourth Tuesday of the month at 6pm
The Roastery - 199 New Montgomery St., San Francisco, CA 94105 (between Natoma St & Howard St)

Going to start this slow because I'm not sure how much time I can commit in the coming weeks, but I'll be hosting an Ubuntu Hour in San Francisco next week:

Date: Tuesday, June 22nd

Time: 6-7PM

Location: The Roastery
199 New Montgomery St
(between Natoma St & Howard St)
San Francisco, CA 94105

This is not too far from Thirsty Bear, where we hosted the Lucid release party. They have sandwiches, free wifi and standard coffee shop drinks.

The coffee shop isn't very big, so you shouldn't have trouble finding me - I'll be wearing an Ubuntu t-shirt and have a pink netbook with Ubuntu stickers on it :)

Hello everyone!

I'm holding an Ubuntu Hour in Lake Forest, CA. The general idea is that we meet up for an hour someplace public wearing with some Ubuntu stuff visible (some clothing or a sticker or something) and just chat for an hour. The next two dates are:

Thursday, June 10th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Thursday, June 17th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm

Not only will it be fun to meet local Ubuntu fans, but we can also be a visible source of information about Ubuntu. As such, we'll be following the Ubuntu Code of Conduct which is just good common sense in a public setting anyhow.

So I'm going to be at the Panera Bread restaurant in Lake Forest at 6pm until 7pm. They have pretty decent food and free wi-fi access. I'll have my laptop and an Ubuntu hat and shirt, so please feel free to come up and say hi. :)

I'll also be there every Thursday for June and July. At that time I'll evaluate whether or not the experiment was a success, and if it was, we'll keep on going. Last week was an incredible success and I can't wait to see who shows up tonight! :) Hope to see you there!

Hello everyone!

This summer's series of Ubuntu Hour events in Lake Forest, California continues tonight at Panera. It's been great to have so many different Ubuntu enthusiasts come and visit whenever they were free. The general idea is that we meet up for an hour someplace public wearing with some Ubuntu stuff visible (some clothing or a sticker or something) and just chat for an hour. The next two dates are:

Thursday, July 22th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Thursday, July 29st, 2010, 6pm - 7pm

Not only will it be fun to meet local Ubuntu fans, but we can also be a visible source of information about Ubuntu. As such, we'll be following the Ubuntu Code of Conduct (http://www.ubuntu.com/community/conduct). Easily summarized as "be excellent to each other," it's good common sense in a public setting anyhow.

I'm going to be at the Panera Bread restaurant in Lake Forest at 6pm until 7pm. They have pretty decent food and free wi-fi access. I'll have my laptop and an Ubuntu hat and shirt, so please feel free to come up and say hi. :) It's also a good chance to bring along friends who are curious about Ubuntu.

I'll be there this and next Thursday to wrap up July. Ubuntu Hour's been a pretty good success so for August and beyond I'll decide how frequently we'll continue to meet. Hope to see you there!

Hi everyone,

Continuing what we started last month, I'll be hosting an Ubuntu Hour next week (on the 4th Tuesday of the month) at The Roastery in San Francisco.

Date: Tuesday, July 27nd

Time: 6-7PM

Location: The Roastery
199 New Montgomery St
(between Natoma St & Howard St)
San Francisco, CA 94105

It's less than a block from Thirsty Bear, where we hosted the SF Lucid release party. They have pastries, wifi and standard coffee shop drinks. The coffee shop isn't very big, so you shouldn't have trouble finding me - I'll be wearing an Ubuntu t-shirt and have a pink netbook with Ubuntu stickers on it.

Not required since it's pretty informal, but if you feel like signing up I also created a LoCo Directory entry for it:

http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/team/182/detail/

So drop by and say hello, have a chat about Ubuntu, bring along your laptop that you're having that weird problem with so we can take a look or just have a warm drink with some fellow Ubuntu people.

In the area but can't make it at this time? Consider hosting your own Ubuntu Hour! They're easy and informal: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hour

This month we decided to sync up our Ubuntu Hour at The Roastery on New Montgomery with the same evening that Bay Area Debian plans to have their meetings - the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

So on Wednesday November 10th there will be two, complementing, meetups across the street from each other:

San Francisco Ubuntu Hour
Time: 6-7PM
Location: The Roastery, 199 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco
LoCo Directory: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/team/523/detail/

Bay Area Debian Meeting
Time: 7-9PM (or later!)
Location: Henry's Hunan Restaurant, 110 Natoma Street, San Francisco
Announcement: http://bad.debian.net/list/2010-November/003377.html

So come out to the Ubuntu Hour and join us for dinner at the Bay Area Debian Meeting!

Or come early to the Bay Area Debian meeting and grab a coffee at the Ubuntu Hour!

To find us at both events, look for the people in the Linux shirts (I'll be wearing a black shirt with a big Ubuntu logo on the front) and the Squeeze and Wheezy stuffed toys :)

Just an FYI for tomorrows Ubuntu Hour down in San Diego!

-------------------------------

Hey all!

We're mixing it up with the San Diego Ubuntu hour this month! Instead of having Saturday morning coffee like the last few, we'll be having this Ubuntu hour at a Panera Bread Horton Plaza downtown during the week!

The March Ubuntu hour will be:
Tuesday, March 22 @ 7pm
Panera Bread (Downtown)
225 Broadway, San Diego CA 92101

Horton Plaza is a confusing place. The Panera Bread building is a free-standing structure from the actual mall, right next to the huge NBC building. (I'm Ron Burgundy?) It is right next to where they set up the ice skating rink for Christmas, by the actual Plaza. Panera Bread has a lot of space and internet access. Come discuss and network with other Ubuntu fans!

I know what you're thinking, "Downtown?! the traffic! the parking!" Its ok, calm down :)

1. Its at Horton Plaza so the parking in the adjoining Horton Plaza parking structure isfree for 3 hours, when you get your ticket validated in the mall.
2. Its 7pm on a Tuesday, so its not like the Gaslamp Quarter is out in full force
3. Its well past rush hour, traffic should be manageable!

Hope to see you there! Again, please RSVP here:

Ubuntu Hour and Release Party in San Francisco!

The team has been pretty quiet release party-wise so I'd like to start out by reminding everyone that it's not too late to plan something! You are welcome to do release-related events all month, get familiar with the new release, do a few installs and host a party or installfest in the next few weeks rather than right away.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/OneiricRelease

With this in mind, I was feeling energetic today and decided to plan a (late) release party in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 19th.

The evening will begin at 6PM at an Ubuntu Hour in San Francisco at The Roastery on New Montgomery street, details here:

http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/1367/detail/

At 7PM we'll head over to Thirsty Bear Brewing Company on Howard street (just a block away!) for 2 hours of release party fun with food and drinks, details here:

http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/1368/detail/

We expect this release event to be smaller than past ones at Thirsty Bear so we'd like to get a table and have some idea of how many people to expect, so PLEASE RSVP. If you have trouble registering with the link above on loco.ubuntu.com just email me with your RSVP: lyz at ubuntu.com

Thanks everyone!

Just like in June, we've decided to sync up our monthly San Francisco Ubuntu Hour with the 2nd Wednesday date of the Bay Area Debian Meeting, to offer an evening of Ubuntu and Debian!

So this Wednesday, August 8th, the plan is as follows:

First, from 6-7PM:

San Francisco Ubuntu Hour
Location: The Roastery, 199 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco
Details: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/1863/detail/

Then, from 7-9PM:

Bay Area Debian Meeting
Location: Henry's Hunan Restaurant, 110 Natoma Street, San Francisco
Details: http://bad.debian.net/list/2012-August/003513.html

So come out to the Ubuntu Hour and join us for dinner at the Bay Area Debian Meeting!

To find us at both events, look for the people in the Linux shirts and the penguin, Squeeze and Wheezy stuffed toys. At Henry's Hunan we'll have reservations under "Bay Area Debian"

Hello, I'm planning on attending (if I can get out of work early enough to get to Pasadena by 6). Since coffee houses are usually filled with people on laptops and tablets, will there be a sign posted for where the group will meet? Or should I just look for Orange logos on things? :P

I stopped by Pasadena for UH last night, but didn't see anyone sporting Linux. Just a bunch of people with MACs. Did I miss everyone?

I was at the October Ubuntu Hour, but had to travel last month and was unable to attend, so I don't know how many were there. We usually get at least half a dozen people, and when I'm there I often wear my Ubucon badge and usually have my laptop lid up with its Ubuntu logo.

If you can make it to the one we're having this Thursday (Dec 13) I'll be there for sure, and look forward to meeting you.
