Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day


Today we celebrate our amazing Ubuntu Community and show our appreciation for all the hard work put into making Ubuntu what it is today.

Ubuntu is not just an operating system, it is a whole community in which everybody collaborates with everybody to bring to the life a wonderful human experience. When you download the ISO, burn it, install it and start to enjoy it, you know that a lot of people made magnificent efforts to deliver the best Ubuntu OS possible.

To show our appreciation, the Community Managers and Designers have nominated several community application developers to receive a special thank you for their outstanding work:

  • Dan Chapman (dekko)
  • Boren Zhang (dekko)
  • Kunal Parmar (calendar)
  • Stefano Verzegnassi (docviewer)
  • Riccardo Padovani (calculator, notes)
  • Bartosz Kosiorek (calculator, clock)
  • Roman Shchekin (shorts, docviewer)
  • Joey Chan (shorts)
  • Victor Thompson (music, weather)
  • Andrew Hayzen (music, weather)
  • Nekhelesh Ramananthan (clock)
  • Niklas Wenzel (terminal, dekko/platform)

We’ll send everyone an official Ubuntu keychain and sticker pack.


 

We also got hold of some other special Ubuntu items and because it is impossible to pick favourites, names were drawn out of a hat:

 

 

The following folks will be receiving a special Ubuntu gift from us:


3rd prize: An official Ubuntu hat – Niklas Wenzel

 

2nd prize: An official Ubuntu pad from Castelli – Andrew Hayzen

 

1st prize: An official Ubuntu wireless mouse from Xoopar – Joey Chan

 

Well done guys!

Models not included.


Show your appreciation:

  • Ping an IRC Ubuntu channel and leave a thank you
  • Send an email to a mailing list; you can do it to a LoCo mailing list
  • On social media:
  • Or if you see a community member in the street, go up to them and give them a well-deserved pat on the back 🙂

For everyone who works out of passion and love for Ubuntu: we thank you, and hope it will encourage more contributors to join and make Ubuntu even better!
