Tonight I went to my first Ubuntu Global Jam event. It was held at MIT (awesome!) in the Stata Center. First of all, as a chemist I was thrilled to be on the MIT campus. I often considered applying there as an undergrad but decided to stay on the West Coast. The Stata Center didn’t disappoint. Secondly, this was the first time since moving to the Boston area a month ago that I actually got into the city (yeah, technically Cambridge, but close enough). I took the Boston metro for the first time, which worked out pretty well.
Finally, I was able to get ~20 Edubuntu bugs squashed and seven packages completely triaged. I also sponsored an upload for one of the Jam attendees. All-in-all, it was a productive time and definitely worth the trip. I especially want to give a big shout-out to the MIT SIPB (Student Information Processing Board) for hosting the event. The pizza was very excellent.
