Choosing topics

  • Please note that this is an Ubuntu event. Ubuntu related topics will
    get much higher priority. Please suggest a topic that is at least
    slightly related to Ubuntu and the technologies related with Ubuntu
    ecosystem or Ubuntu community.
  • Please be specific! Topics such as “What is Ubuntu?”, “What is Security”, “What is Social Engineering” is too much broad! In most cases, these kinds of topics can be rejected.
  • Generic topics such as “Incident Management”, “Managing your stress”, “Create your personal strategic plan”, “Team Dynamics & Communication Skills” might be suitable for public lectures, But usually not suitable for our event. If you relate generic topics with Ubuntu projects or community, that might be suitable for our event.
    • For example, just talking about Tax and Tax accounting is not
      suitable for our event, But what about talking your experience on
      managing accounting and tax for UbuCon or other Ubuntu community
      activities? That would be interesting topic for other Ubuntu folks!
