Ubuntu Open Week, Call for Instructors
We’ve sent out a call for instructors for Ubuntu Open Week. Open Week runs from 2-6 May in #ubuntu-classroom (the week after release).
Since Developer Week is already off and rocking I’m looking for some more end-user-y type sessions. Want to dig in? Then sign up and let me know!
Open Week, Call for Instructors
One of the coolest things we do is Ubuntu Open Week. This is a week long set of IRC tutorial sessions that we do for users. In the past they were heavily development related, but now as we have a Developer Week and Application Developer Week, we can start to use Ubuntu Open Week for something more useful to end users. And since it’s always the week after a release it’s an opportunity for Ubuntu teams to talk to people who might be interested in joining the project.
I’m looking for a few good men and women to do their first ever tutorial sessions. I think it’s about time we got some new blood in here, and it’s pretty low barrier to teach an IRC class. Here’s the schedule if you want to get in on this. Feel free to contact me at jorge at ubuntu dot com or find me on #ubuntu-community-team on freenode.
I’d like to see more participation from derivatives!
