I'm very happy to announce that Wikimedia has offered space in their offices on New Montgomery St in downtown San Francisco for our Ubuntu Global Jam event on Saturday the 8th!

Date: Saturday, September 8, 2012
Time: Noon - 4PM
Location: Wikimedia Foundation, Inc., 149 New Montgomery St, Floor 3, San Francisco, CA 94105
Cost: Free (I'll be paying for the food out of pocket)

For this event we will be focusing on ISO testing.

What is ISO testing?

Disk images for the upcoming Ubuntu release, 12.10, need to be tested throughout the development cycle and bugs filed. You can do LiveCD tests, install tests on hardware, install tests in virtual machines and application testing. In the first hour or so we will teach you how to run the tests and then how to report the bugs.

I'll bring some testing handouts, copies of the latest working
versions of the images on DVDs and USB sticks, a spindle of blank DVDs and the iso files themselves in case we need more.

If you wish to do testing, you will need to bring a laptop which can boot from DVD or USB and do one or all of the following: LiveCD testing, test installs on the laptop hardware itself or tests on virtual machines.

If you don't want to do testing at the event itself or don't have a laptop you can bring, you're welcome to join us to just learn about the tools used for testing and eat some pizza.

If you have trouble logging in to RSVP (or don't have/want a Launchpad account) please just let me know you're coming so I can give the folks at Wikimedia an accurate attendee count prior to the event.

We will be ordering cheese, veggie and meat pizzas to arrive around 1:30, so please let me know if you have any further dietary restrictions/preferences.

Huge thanks to Wikimedia for providing the space!

Hope to see you there.
