Michigan LoCo Bug Jam – Summer 2008

Posted by Greg on June 2, 2008

I am pleased to announce that the Michigan LoCo Team is holding a Bug Jam on June 9th at 6:30 pm.

What is a Bug Jam?
Every day people report bugs about Ubuntu in the bug tracker Launchpad [0] but the number of bugs reported is more than the current bug triagers can effectively handle. In short, the Ubuntu community needs more bug triagers. But how do you triage bugs? Bug Jams are events where people who are interested in learning how to triage bugs get together to learn how to do this and answer everyone’s questions. It is a fun learning event.

Also, it is a great way to get started doing your 5-a-day and add your name to this list and increase our team’s ranking:

When and where is our Bug Jam?
It is Monday June 9th at 6:30pm at the Main branch of the Clinton-Macomb Public Library [1]. We will be in a conference room with free wifi to library card holders. People without local library cards can sign up
for one in 5 minutes, but if you are planning on doing that, please try to show up a little bit early. Directions can be found here:

What should I do before the Bug Jam?
Check out some of the bug triaging resources online right now like:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs and
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage

There is a wealth of information linked to from this page:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad/KnowledgeBase

What do you do after the Bug Jam?
There are plenty of restaurant/bar options in the area to celebrate a jam well done and eat dinner.

Feel free to email the mailing list[2] for coordinating rides and asking questions before hand.

  1. Hey –

    I lead the bug triage team in Fedora and we desperately need contributors as well. I’d be *very* interested in how this turns out (particularly the effects on lasting contributors). I’m in the NYC area, and I’m sure there’s plenty of Fedora users to be recruited around here! :)

  2. Way to go Greg! Please post how it went! :-)

  6. […] Où et quand se produira la chasse aux bugs ? Lundi 9 juin à 6h30 dans le bâtiment principal de la bibliothèque publique de Clinton-Macomb. L’équipe sera dans une salle de conférence avec un réseau wifi ouvert aux détenteurs de cartes de bibliothèque. Les personnes n’ayant pas de carte de bibliothèque peuvent en obtenir une en cinq minutes, mais si vous avez l’intention d’en prendre, essayez d’arriver un peu en avance. Rejoignez l’équipe et passez un bon moment en faisant votre contribution à Ubuntu. http://konsilience.wordpress.com/2008/06/02/michigan-loco-bug-jam-summer-2008/ […]
