Fwd: RSVP open: Wed Apr 20, Mark Baker -on- What's new in Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus)?

So I'm torn over whether this is directly Debian related, but I figured since
Ubuntu is arguably the most important Debian derivative, and Mark is a
knowledgable speaker, I figure I should pass this along.

Mark is the product manager in charge of Ubuntu's Server and Cloud
offerings and is also on the board of the OpenStack foundation.

Bring your questions!


P.S. - As always, please use the Meetup RSVP system if you are able,
but if you can/will not use Meetup, and would like to attend, please
email me.
P.S.S. - I'll have my ID and gpg slips with me at the afterparty, and
will be available for keysigning, if anyone wants.

What's new in Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus)?

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT CIVIC HALL!! We'll need names, and you will
need IDs. RSVP will open Wednesday Apr 6th, 2016, 4:30pm.

Mark Baker, Ubuntu Server and Cloud Product Manager at Canonical, will
talk about the soon to be (4/??/16) released Ubuntu LTS (Long Term
Support) 16.04 Xenial Xerus, which, as an LTS release, will be
supported for the next five years.

Most importantly, Mark will answer the pressing question, "What is a Xerus?"

In addition, Mark will be thoroughly reviewing  the major changes in
16.04, with a particular goal to explain why the changes are important
and how they impact users, whether they are running Ubuntu in the
cloud, on the desktop or in their pockets.

Mark will also touch on some recent changes in Ubuntu's kernel
maintenance policies, and other timely Ubuntu news.


Join us afterwards at a nearby bar where we'll continue the
discussion over drinks and/or food.

Speaker Bio:
Mark is the Ubuntu server and cloud product manager at Canonical where
he has spent the last 4 years helping drive the platform for next

continues to have fun following this same path.
