Ubuntu 12.04 Release Party

We, had the Precise Pangolin party today at Shroma Palace, Dhanmondi, Dhaka. It was the official Ubuntu 12.04 release party of Ubuntu Bangladesh LoCo team. You must be surprised – why on earth the release party was delayed two weeks! Well … we have some political unrest situations here in Bangladesh, which forced us to arrange the party after two weeks of the actual release date.

We’re almost 10 people there. Well… theoretically there should be more than 50 people, at least our facebook event announcement page showed that kind of figure. But unfortunately there are less than that. In the evening we have some light storm (locally known as the Kalboishakhi) out there, may be that is the reason behind that low scoring crowd.

We had fun at the party. We had all the distros (Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Lubuntu and even Ubuntu Studio) for distributing. We had one guy who brought a laptop with a Fedora sticker on it, which actually was running on Arch-Linux and he took the Ubuntu iso for testing! We enjoyed the delicious meal – Chicken Shorma with French fries and cold beverages. We had two guys wearing Ubuntu t-shirts.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the party! Here are some party Pics. More pictures can be found here.

We had a DOEL Laptop in the party. Doel is the Bangladesh Government funded laptop/netbook. I know what you're thinking about the logo. And yes, some stupid had designed that DELLish logo.

  1. জি। কালকে আসলেই অনেক মজা হয়েছে। বিশেষ করে আদনান ভাইয়ের সাথে দেখা হওয়াটা বেশ আনন্দদায়ক ছিল।

  2. Great to know about this party. This party looks more like a party than the other. Unfortunately, I missed both the release parties for Precise Pangolin.
    Pictures for the other party is available here: http://goo.gl/lw7Hk

  3. আদনান ভাই, আরেকটা পার্টি দেন সহসাই। এআইইউবিতে গেলে চিনবেন তো ? আবরার ফয়সাল, রুবায়েত তৌসিফ প্রমুখ আমার বন্ধু হয়; তাদের কাছে গেলে আপনার সাথে মিট করার ইচ্ছা আছে। পার্টি মিস করার কষ্টটা দূর হয়ে যাবে তখন।

    1. এআইইউবিতে একটা অনুষ্ঠান করার ইচ্ছা আছে। দেখা যাক করা যায় কীনা! আবরার বা তৌসিফের সাথে দেখা করতে গেলে অবশ্যই আমার সাথে দেখা করবেন। 🙂
