UbuCon Paris (aka Paris Ubuntu Party)
Every six months, the french Ubuntu LoCo organizes the parisian Ubuntu Party. Not only the biggest french Ubuntu event, it's also the biggest FOSS event in France, with thousands of guests and more than a hundred volunteers.
Beyond attending the many talks and demos, you can also come with your laptop and have Ubuntu installed at the (often full) Install Party.
To get started with Ubuntu or learn new skills, the event proposes several workshops. Participation is free of charge.
