Hi all y'all - I am new (did I mention VERY new) to Ubuntu...been looking through training and meeting locations and have found that BOSTON is the only place anything is happening....is there any way that you guys might consider holding meetings/trainging in my neck of the woods (literally)? I live 20 miles west of Worcester....Thanks for listening!

Hello mamamarble,

All events are held where the people who are willing to run them are willing to run them. Most people (in general) are in Boston/Cambridge and our concentration here has allowed us some successful events and community networking.

There are 3 ways to get training in your neck of the woods:

1) That there is someone from around there who is willing to set it up.
2) You could convince someone from Boston (or some other part of MA) to come down and run training there.
3) You could pay me (or someone else) to come out there as a private arrangement.

Don't forget, our voluntarism is limited t what resources we have to hand and our scope is limited by the people who join us to organise these kinds of things.

There's a Worcester LUG (Linux User Group) near you. There's bound to be some Ubuntu users there! :) And other LUG's in Mass:
