  • 8 are Ubuntu Official Members.

Structure and Governance

The Ubuntu Portugal project was born in 2005, with the goal of spreading the word about Ubuntu and free software in Portugal. We have a small structure to help us organise our venues and events, and also to manage members and their contributions. Currently, we have a Community Board of 5 elements and these take crucial decisions regarding the Community's evolution.

In late 2017 the Ubuntu Portugal community suffered a slight restructure to increase Portuguese contributions in Launchpad, either by translating applications or to just provide an healthy, welcoming and inviting environment to people that love open and free software, as much as we do.

Currently, these are our project leads, providing help unravelling local projects:

Activities

Regular Events

Local, National and International

Encontro Ubuntu-pt @ Sintra

  • Every month, on a Thursday, the Ubuntu Portugal Community gathers together at Saloon, in Sintra, a region in Lisbon. We welcome everyone who wishes to join us and have a good time, sharing experiences and cheering for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Hour Lisbon

  • Since January 2017, we have restarted to make monthly meetup events in Lisbon. Everybody is welcome to a mostly social event of Ubuntu lovers.

Encontro Online Ubuntu-PT

  • On the last Monday of each month, the Portuguese Community gathers in an online event to discuss the evolution, progress and projects of the Community. This is the space to bring new projects and get feedback on them, as well as to discuss developments of existing initiatives.

Ubucon Europe

  • We try to get as many members of the community on Ubucon Europe events, to connect us to other Ubuntu users, enriching both our LoCo and our participating members with different perspectives, ideas, knowledge, as well as invaluable work and friendship relationships.

Documentation

  • Continue working and improving the community outlook regarding translations. The ultimate goal is to be able to provide Ubuntu written in Portuguese, as well as explained in Portuguese. For that, we have a sub-team that oversees the activities on these topics.

International Social Meetups

Our community is commit to Free and Open Source Software, this means that our members participate in events about it. And even if they're not specifically about Ubuntu we and members of other LoCo get together to celebrate Ubuntu and our friendship, like we did at FOSDEM 2017 in Brussels.

Ubuntu Members

The Ubuntu Members are recognised for the great work they have done and are doing for the Ubuntu project. The following are subject to a very thorough inspection by the Ubuntu Community Council.

Our pride

This community was born with the sole interest in Ubuntu and Free and Open Source Software. Our compromise and goal is to help spreading the word about Software Freedom, and Ubuntu, because it allows all to enjoy the benefits of technological advances. Moreover, we want to establish a national representation of Ubuntu in Portuguese, in branding, images and events.

Throughout the years, the community has suffered its ups and downs. Not always we have been the most connected LoCo to the Ubuntuverse. However, we lately experienced the need to shift priorities and we recognise how much we benefit from being a part of the Ubuntu Universe and Community.

This re-validation of our membership would mean we are back on the right tracks and also a cheerful recognition of all the community's efforts.

Other treasures

Ubuntu Touch

We're a small community, but like all Portuguese we get very excited about innovation. That's why we got very excited and engaged with the vision of convergence that Canonical proposed and lead for several years. One of our more active members, Tiago Carrondo, was an insider and not only flew to London to get to know the first phone sold with Ubuntu pre-installed, but he also brought those exciting news to our community, and showed us the device both on our meetup events, and also on an online event.

Several of our most engaged members acquired multiple devices to run Ubuntu Touch, and although we miss Canonical leadership in this, we're also very happy with the Ubports community to take over the facet of Ubuntu, and we continue engaged and participating on this effort. We keep using Ubuntu Touch, we have a Telegram group language/regional group dedicated to Ubports, and we have an Ubports First Responder Team member and language Captain (Diogo Constantino).

Podcast Ubuntu Portugal

Two of our members have created a podcast with their view about Ubuntuverse dedicated to our community and all Portuguese speakers that love Ubuntu, it's the Podcat Ubuntu Portugal, inspired by other podcasts such as the Ubuntu Podcast.

This podcast is the latest effort for reaching out to Portuguese speakers and to divulge more information about Ubuntu.
