Something wonderful just happened in Montevideo, the passion, hard work and a bit of craziness from the most incredible group of people I know, erased borders and create one really big team.
We had almost 300 people in this 2 day event, with awesome talks, a wonderful demo stand and FREE COFFEE!!
We would like to special thank, Jono for the great message he send us, Michelle for all her hard work in this last months for this and Lucas our great Design guy who work a lot and sadly miss this event.
Thanks for this great UbuConLA see you in the next one!
This week we have the UbuConLA in Montevideo, and almost everything is ready, in the last week we got a national newspaper interview the “El Observador” Newspaper and the Uruguayan Goverment declare the UbuConLA an event of National Interest with the approval by the Minister of Education and Culture Ricardo Ehrlich. On top of this we got metion in a primetime news program in Channel 12 from Montevideo.

Here in Latin America since this year we have an annual Ubuntu event that will take place in a different city every edition.
The 2013 edition will take place in Montevideo Uruguay and we have started to organize everything to make the 2013 edition as good as the 2012 one.
The call for talks have already open and you can get more info in Here, and if you happen to be near Montevideo next 7th and 8th June just come to the event!!
The last week took place in Foz de Iguazu, Brazil the 2012 edition of Latinoware, and I had the wonderful opportunity to give two talks and join Ubuntu-BR team.
This was a really great event, where I got surprised by the level of the organization, that was great! and how great, open and friendly is the Ubuntu-BR team, even the fact I don’t speak a single word of Portuguese and they don’t speak Spanish, we got a way to communicate our selves!!
It was a busy event for 4200 people, our stand was always full, people asking for cds, lanyards, tshirts or solutions for some ubuntu problems, we end up really tired but it was a great experience!.
On a remarkable story to tell, the Ubuntu 12.10 talk turned into a Gangnam style dance contest when Tiago showed the Youtube integration with webapps.
I add some pictures from the event and I want to thank the Organization of the event, specially Duda, for taking me there, and all the Ubuntu-br team (Tiago, Julian, Marta, Ursula and Ayrton) for let me be one of their great team!
On this September we had a new call to have elections in our Uruguayan LoCo Council.

Playing around with Quicky and Unity lenses I come up with this:
a lens that searches in docs.python.org and provide links to the docs.
It works pretty well (just the first search is a little slow, and I am working on it)
if you want to try it
just add the PPA:pablorubianes-uy/pythondoc and install pythondoc-lens (its not a final release so… USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK and if you find some issue please File the bug)
