@sanso86 welcome to UBports have a look at https://ubports.com/page/telegram-welcome to get you started.
Hello! My name is Dito Kurnia P. I'm 17 years old and I'm from Indonesia. Right now I'm interest in Open Source project from app, game, to OS like in here. Now I'm using Linux Ubuntu from January or February (I'm forget) this year, and I like this. Now I want to try Ubuntu Touch on my phone. But, because my phone is not supported yet, maybe I will try to help in Translation.
Thank you for reading my introduction and I'm sorry if my English is bad. Bye...
Hello @advocatux . Yes I'm not in the Telegram UBports Indonesian group yet, I will join the group maybe tomorrow. But now I still help translating on UBports Weblate

My name is Mathieu, 26 year old, and I'm from Québec, Canada.
I'm a mechanical designer without passion for coding, but I'm really interested in the Logiciel Libre (as it's said in french), and I became really conscientious of the important of the privacy on laptop and mobile.
I'm running Archlinux on my laptop, Lineage OS on my Galaxy SIII as main phone, and just bought a Nexus 5 to try as well Ubuntu touch and Plasma Mobile to be my new daily phone. I also run a VPS host by OVH with my own VPN, and a dedicated server with Baïkal, FreshRSS and a personal photo blog.
For now, I really prefer Ubuntu Touch over Plasma Mobile. I thought it would be without future after Cannonical abandoned the project, but I found here a really nice future for this OS.
I think I can help with bug report, and maybe for documentation.
I'm also here to find some help to setup the functionality that are essential for me on a smartphone (VPN and cal/carddav sync first).
Thanks for reading, and thanks a lot for all your work!
@ellypsis Hi welcome to UBports have a look at this link to get started, its full of info
Then there this one on how to do a good bug report
have fun and enjoy UBports.
My name is Jackie and I have tinkered with Linux since Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. I have used a variety of desktops and laptops until 2 years ago when I bought a System76 Galago UltraPro. It currently runs Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on an SSD and 18.04 on a 1Tb spinner. LOVE that laptop!!!
I recently purchased a bq M10 FHD Ubuntu Edition and am running 15.04 (r61). Became a Patreon supporter because I want to help this project and I am not a coder, developer or programmer. Thought that might be the best way to go! Look forward to seeing this community grow!
If I can help with anything let me know!

Hello, I'm David aged 76, retired and living in Dorset in the UK. I graduated in physics in 1963 and initially worked as a R&D engineer on ferrite core and plated wire computer memory systems. I've been using linux systems for many years, especially Ubuntu and ordered a BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition as soon as they went on sale. I subsequently switched to UBports and love it. I use my tablet for about two hours every day and it does most things I want. I really appreciate the UBports community and have gained the confidence to be able to post some questions to the support forum. I'm not a software developer, but I'm keen to try my hand at producing a simple webapp. So far I had some great help from the support forum. I would like to contribute to testing, but as I use 15.04 so much, I'm reluctant to install 16.04 and risk compromising my system. What I really need to do is to aquire another tablet. Oh BTW I speak and read french.
@dtarrant Hello David, Welcome to UBports at this exciting time. 16.04 rc has just been released so the stable version can't be far behind. If you haven't already have a look at these links to get started
and this for any installing issues
and carry on enjoying UBports Ubuntu Touch

@dtarrant Hello / salut David
If you need it, there is still Ubuntu tablets for sale by BQ:
@libremax Thanks for the suggestion. Maybe that or a Nexus 5. I guess there are many Nexus 5 users, so an M10 tablet might be a more useful test bed.

My name is Paul Reiter (neopar), I live in Germany and I am working as a software developer for mobile robots.
I am using Linux since Ubuntu 6.06 (so I spent a lot of time configuring beryl, compiz, emerald… with a lot of pain around xorg.conf and fgrlx - my laptop with ati mobility radeon x1100 from 2007 is still doing well and is running bodhi linux now).
I have some coding experience (Pascal, Java, Python, shell scripting) but also in administration (Jenkins, Redmine), virtualization (VirtualBox / QEMU) and handling with OS images.
I own an BQ E5 Ubuntu Edition since first release and already coded some apps for it using Ubuntu SDK (QML + Python), but I never published them due ether some legal stuff or it was too special use case. Early last year I had to switch to Android (for managing some business issues via WhatsApp), so I had no clue what is going on in UT community for around one and a half year (just followed the canonical mailing list but it is dead since view months).
Even if I do not have much free time for family reasons at the moment, I want to participate in this friendly community to make the world a better place… or at least to build a stable alternative mobile os.
@neopar hi, welcome!!
If you still want to develop apps, take a look to Clickable (https://clickable.bhdouglass.com/en/latest/).
The easier and effortless way to keep you up to date is subscribing to the UBports New Channel in Telegram (https://t.me/ubports_news) and/or Matrix (#ubports_news:matrix.org). It's low traffic and not spammy at all.

My name is Paul Shapley and I think I'm probably the oldest on the forum at 54. I work in the UK with Geographical Information Systems and I'm a huge Ubuntu fan using this platform as a daily driver.
I'm not a developer but I do have technical skills in open source mapping. I had an old OnePlus One left in a draw when I saw that UBports had developed a port for it on 'omgubuntu' several weeks ago and couldn't wait to install it. I'm converted already.
I would love to help to get some open source mapping applications currently only available on Android across to UT through Anbox. I've already got a UT Webapp for one of them but not in the store.

You certainly aren't the oldest on the forum. A mere child in fact.
My name is Ashley from the UK. I am an archaeologist and I've been using Kubuntu for a while although I recently switched to KDEneon, I have no coding experience but plan to learn over the coming winter. I tried Ubuntu touch a year and half ago on a nexus 5 hammerhead with little or no success, I tried again a couple of months ago with far greater success and would like to completely move over from Android. One of the main issues stopping from the complete switch is my love of pebble watches which I am currently unable to set up.
I would like to help with this project in some way.
