Get to know these 5 Ubuntu community resources

Ubuntu community

As open-source software, Ubuntu is designed to serve a community of users and innovators worldwide, ranging from enterprise IT pros to small-business users to hobbyists.

Ubuntu users have the opportunity to share experiences and contribute to the improvement of this platform and community, and to encourage our wonderful community to continue learning, sharing and shaping Ubuntu, here are five helpful resources:

Ubuntu Tutorials

These tutorials provide step-by-step guides on using Ubuntu for different projects and tasks across a wide range of Linux tools and technologies.
Many of these tutorials are contributed and suggested by users, so this site also provides guidance on creating and requesting a tutorial on a topic you believe needs to be covered.

Ubuntu Community Hub

This community site for user discourse is relatively new and intended for people working at all levels of the stack on Ubuntu. The site is evolving, but currently includes discussion forums, announcements, QA and testing requests, feedback to the Ubuntu Community Council and more.

Ubuntu Community Help Wiki page

From installation to documentation of Ubuntu flavours such as Lubuntu and Kubuntu, this wiki page offers instructions and self-help to users comfortable doing it themselves. Learn some tips, tricks and hacks, and find links to Ubuntu official documentation as well as additional help resources.

Ubuntu Server Edition FAQ page

Its ease of use, ability to customise and capacity to run on a wide range of hardware makes Ubuntu the most popular server choice of the cloud age. This FAQs page provides answers to technical questions, maintenance, support and more to address any Ubuntu server queries.

Ubuntu Documentation

If you are a user who relies extensively on Ubuntu documentation, perhaps you can lend a hand to the Documentation Team to help improve it by:

  • Submitting a bug: Sending in a bug report when you find mistakes.
  • Fixing a bug: Proposing a fix an existing bug.
  • Creating new material: Adding to an existing topic or writing on a new topic.

These are just a few of the available resources and recommended suggestions for getting involved in the Ubuntu community. For more, visit ubuntu.com/community.
