Invitation to Ubuntu Hardy Heron Release Party in Berlin on 26th of April 2008

Here it comes: Though the release party of the „Ubuntu Berlin“ user group will be mainly in German we also invite all non native German speaking visitors to attend us. Here is the official English invitation (thanks to ninin for the work on the translation):

Ubuntu „Hardy Heron“ release party on April 26th at 4:00 pm at the c-base in Berlin

Ubuntu 8.04 „Hardy Heron“ is arriving. To celebrate the new release of the popular free GNU/Linux distribution Ubuntu the local user group Ubuntu-Berlin will organize a party. The event will take place on the 26th of April in the rooms of the culture project c-base and starts at 4:00 pm. Admission is free.

There will be a programme of short talks (about 20 minutes each) in relaxed atmosphere. Several features and applications which are integrated into the new Ubuntu version are presented by users, for example the optional 3D-Desktop. Furthermore there will be contributions of associated organisations like the „Free Software Foundation Europe“ (FSFE) and the „Förderverein für eine Freie Informationelle Infrastruktur“ (FFII). A „burning station“ provides visitors with Hardy CDs at cost price of one Euro. For anyone who wants to try out Hardy straight away there will be the possibility to do so on one of the computers there. There will be many experienced users around, who will answer questions.

Musical entertainment comes from a variety of Bands and DJs who will also play free music. Beverages and snacks are available at the bar at moderate prices. Laptops can be connected to a free Wifi net (visitors could bring a power strip, switch and cable).

Ein Gedanke zu “Invitation to Ubuntu Hardy Heron Release Party in Berlin on 26th of April 2008

  1. I am really glad to have found this link today. Attending this release party will really give a complete meaning to my stay in Berlin. I am coming from Afghanistan.

    Looking forward to the day and thank you „Ubuntu Berlin“ for the that.
