Ubuntu Developer Week Website buttons @ SpreadUbuntu
*** Update ***
Evan and I have kickstarted a campaign to promote the Ubuntu Developer Week (through the Website buttons) in the SpreadUbuntu site. To get your 5 minutes of fame you have to do the following:
- Head to the SpreadUbuntu site (the campaign is in the front page)
- Log in with the button on the top-right (you do have a Launchpad Account, right? If not get it here)
- Pick the number of buttons you have put in a site/blog/wall/boulevard (it’s trust based, do not exagerate, please :)) and submit. You are automagically part of the campaign!
- Wait until the poll finishes and see all participants (those at the top are the winners) of the campaign
- Enjoy the spotlight while it shines on you (not too much, it has been proven it could give you skin cancer)
Hopefully the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter guys like this and we can get a column there for SpreadUbuntu campaigners that do an outstanding job promoting Ubuntu. we’ll see how this goes…
*** Update ***
Our Venezuelan hero Efraín always taking initiative while others are asleep, kindly asked the LoCo’s to step up and make a website button to spread the news about the Ubuntu Developer Week coming up at the end of August/beginning of September so we all can put it somewhere and let people know.
I couldn’t, of course, let the occasion pass me by so I asked Byron to re-license the buttons in CC-BY-SA (instead of NC) and upon his yes I uploaded both his buttons to the SpreadUbuntu site.
You can see them here (the link points at the SpreadUbuntu page of each of them):
Now If you are lazy, like me, you might as well just get the HTML code to add the buttons with the link directed to the UDW wiki page, right?
Well, here is the Orange button:
<a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek"> <img src="http://spreadubuntu.neomenlo.org/files/huge/botonorange_0.png" width="200" height="117" alt="Ubuntu Developer Week – Fall 2009" border="0" /> </a>
And here is the Brown one:
<a href="https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek"> <img src="http://spreadubuntu.neomenlo.org/files/huge/botonbrown.png" width="200" height="117" alt="Ubuntu Developer Week – Fall 2009" border="0" /> </a>
Remind you that the size of the images can easily be modified. Just change the width in pixels and erase the height attribute and it should be fine! Comments are there to correct my statement if it’s wrong.
If you are the cool type you can change the wiki URL with the URL to the awesome PDF brochure we have, thanks to the unstoppable Daniel Holbach (just change the “https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek” with “http://people.canonical.com/~dholbach/Ubuntu_Developer_Week4.pdf ” in the HTML above. Mind you that the PDF is 539KB)

Now you have no excuse at all not to put it in your website, blog, wall… and help us spreading the word of the coming up Ubuntu Developer Week.
Go UbuSpreaders, you do not have to be a developer to put the button in your website you know. Go!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
