I hopes local Ubuntu users staying in Hong Kong can come, speak, learn ubuntu, f/oss and other topics together at software freedom day and barcamphk.

I am one of local event coordinators of opensource community in Hong Kong. As a Ubuntu user, I read that Ubuntu user group is being formed, and I would like to help and grow local Ubuntu user group at its foundation. So, SFDHK@BarCampHK this year is a good platform and event for us to gather and know each others. (I hopes I can receive some copies of Ubuntu CD from Software Freedom International ASAP for confirmation)

As you would like to talk about Ubuntu or F/OSS, you may contact with me first, or join opening session of barcamphk.

What is BarCamp ?

BarCamp is an ad-hoc "unconference" born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

It's really interesting. I really want to attend. I've registered and don't know if there's a seat for me. Would I receive a confirmation?

As I know, no confirmation is required, but registration helps barcamphk organisator to know how many attendees for easier event arrangement.
