I am pleased to announce the final details for the Ubuntu 7.10 “Gutsy Gibbon” release party for Minnesota! We will be meeting this Saturday, October 20<sup>th</sup> 2007, 7:00 - 9:30 PM. The location is room # 3-111 of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building, 200 Union St. SE, Minneapolis, on the University of Minnesota campus (courtesy of the U of M student chapter of the ACM). If you need help getting there, see this map.

Not sure what a release party is, or why you should go? Well, ours will be a loosely structured social event with a few key aspects:

  • Meet other people from the Ubuntu Minnesota Team
  • Learn about Ubuntu and free software, what it can do for you, and why you should consider using it
  • See the slick new features of Ubuntu 7.10 on a big screen (we’ll have a digital projector)
  • Learn about the Ubuntu community and its processes, including how to get involved in development for university students who need to do software development projects
  • Hang out and have fun

Whether you’ve been using Ubuntu for years, just installed it for the first time, or have never even heard of it but are curious about free open-source software, we’d love to have you swing on by and help answer your questions! See you Saturday!

Any questions about the event can be left as comments on this post, or sent to our team’s mailing list.
