Amber Graner joined the Ubuntu community in early 2009, blogging her experiences as a new Ubuntu user. She wanted to put Ubuntu's "Linux for Human Beings" slogan to the test. That meant ignoring her live-in kernel hacker and using the same support routes every other user has, such as the forums and IRC. She was quickly pointed to the Ubuntu Women group and became active there.
She is also the technical reviewer for The Official Ubuntu Book , 5th Edition, and Co-Author of the 6th and 7th Editions.
In 2012 Amber spoke at SCALE10x giving talks on Mentoring Moments, an UPSCALE talk 0-Geek in 3 years , and even spoke even gave an Introduction to Community talk during the Beginning Linux Session. Amber also opened the Indiana LinuxFest as the Keynote speaker with Linux on Arm: The Next Revolution
