Introduced in January 2015, Find-a-Task shows fellow volunteers the variety of tasks and roles available.
The goal of Find-a-Task is for a volunteer, after exploring the Ubuntu Project, to land on a team or project's wiki page. They are interested, ready to join, and ready to start learning the skills and tools.
However, it only works if *you* use it, too.
Take a quick look, and see the variety of volunteer roles available. We have listings for many different skills and interests, including many non-technical tasks.
Is your team listed?
Hey teams, are you using Find-a-Task to recruit volunteers?
- Are your team roles listed?
- Are they accurate?
- Is your landing page welcoming and useful to a new volunteer?
When it's time to update your postings on the job board, simply jump into Freenode IRC: #ubuntu-community-team.
Gurus: Are your pointing Padwans toward it?
Find-a-Task is a great place to send new enthusiasts. No signup, no login, no questions. It's a great way to survey the roles available in the big, wide, Ubuntuverse, and get new enthusiasts involved in a team.
It's also handy for experienced enthusiasts looking for a new challenge, of course.
- If you're active in the various forums, refer new enthusiasts to Find-a-Task.
- Add it to your signature.
- If you know a Find-a-Task success story, please share.
