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)
Hello, for the ones who don’t know, Argentina and Uruguay LoCos are collaborating in the creation of the UbuConLA, an annual conference that will take place in different cities of Latin America every year, this edition will be in Buenos Aires, Argentina, next 1st and 2nd June, and as we want to have the best event possible, we are asking for collaborations.
Here you can support the event in this fundraising site. (sorry but is in Spanish, but is quite easy to understand it)
Every penny that someone can send us will be a huge help us in this event or the 2013 edition in Montevideo, Uruguay, if we can save some money too.
Sorry for the time it took to post this results, so here I go!
The first Ubuntu welcome Day was a big hit! for the onces who don’t remember or not know about this idea,
Welcome Day is a street meeting where LoCo members talk about Ubuntu to regular people who are passing by. Instead of IRC to get new people, we go to look for them!!!
We heal this event the same day that the User Day, but as we don’t want to interfere other events we could set different dates for next edition of the Welcome Day if other LoCos want to join this idea. Also get a wiki page open so we could share ideas to improve this idea and experience.
In Montevideo we get permission to do the event in the Visual Arts Museum Garden, also internet access provided from the Museum, so we did demos with laptops if people wanted to see what we where talking about.
We hope many other LoCos join us in this idea in the future!
now some pictures
Hello all, this is a proposal to improve an event that I think is really useful.
First of all I want to say I have been part of the User Days event since
the beginning. I have worked on the Spanish edition, so my proposal is nothing
against the event itself.
Well here I go, I think we need to change the name or creattUser Days in favour of
the “Welcome Day” in the future editions, not this time. This means
instead of giving talks via IRC, people informally get together and have a meeting in a
park or garden and get to know each other and let each other know we are
regular guys and girls. All of us at one time or another didn’t know nothing about
Ubuntu, linux or computers and now we are part of a huge community of
people around the world that they can join, contribute, and make new friends.
And of course use a better OS.
Lots of new users have no clue how to use IRC,
taking this into account I think we could get out our caves 😛 and start connecting
to one another face to face. Face to face meetings allow participants to build strong social relationships.
We could organize events at parks and public squares. We could give flyers on the street,
hang them up at university or coffee shops to help get the attention of new people.
Get the full crowd from your loco talking in the street to new people.
I came up with this thanks to ideas from Eduardo Ricobaldi
(EduardoR), Daniel Mato, Magu42 , SergioMeneses and help from Duane Hinnen!!!
Here in Montevideo, we are excited about doing our first event in the
Visual Arts Museum’s Garden the 14th of January, we hope many other
people join the fun and start creating their own events across the community..
Normally huge Ubuntu events take place in the North (Europe/USA) so with that in mind Argentina and Uruguay LoCo Teams are working together to bring the First UbuConLAin May, an yearly event, taking place in different cities of SouthAmerica, stating in Buenos Aires, with the idea of working towards having the greatest event in the Southern hemisphere . more info wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuConLA
Hi I really forgot to share the great release party Uruguay had later this month! over 100 people came to celebrate this release. We had an installfest and talks that took people attention!
A community fellow from Uruguay Pablo Capeluto, took advantage from Unity to create the Community Launcher.
This launcher works by leading you to our Website, Forum, Doc area, Ubuntu Uruguay Email, Web IRC chat, Live Video Stream Events and Event Calendar.
I think this is a great idea to have quick access to your LoCo Stuff!!
