Here at Ubuntu we love to give training sessions over IRC. Since Developer and App Developer Week cover the more advanced end of the spectrum we have something for normal users — Ubuntu Open Week: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOpenWeek
If you look at the last schedule you’ll see that there’s still some pretty development focused sessions there: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MeetingLogs/openweekLucid
I am looking for instructors, specifically those of you who have never taught a class before. Now that developer week is separate, we have some leeway to make these sessions more productive for end users, so I’m looking for some more end-user type questions. So, if you’re interested in helping out by teaching a session dive into the prep
page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOpenWeek/Prep and submit your ideas!
As always, if your Local Team wants to run a concurrent Open Week in your own native language feel free to branch from this wiki page and arrange something, please let me know so I can help get the word out.
(Hoping for someone to do an Inkscape class!)
