Ubuntu Open Week for Trusty: Starting Soon!

ubuntu-open-week

And the Ubuntu Open Week for this cycle is just around the corner! This will be three days full of excitement, where you will be able to know what different teams and people in the community do. Whether you are a developer, a designer, a tester or a community member, this is the right event if you want to get involved with the community and are looking for a starting point.

The event will take place from April 22nd to April 24th 2014, from 15 to 19 UTC each day. During these three days we will have people from various teams, such as the Server, Documentation, and Juju teams. There are twelve different sessions scheduled, so make sure to find which ones interest you and write the times down in your calendars! The full schedule can be found at the Open Week Wiki page.

All sessions will take place at #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat on irc.freenode.net (click here to join from your web browser). There are three sessions in the schedule which are labeled with the [ON AIR!] tag, which means the session will be streamed live at the Ubuntu on Air! webpage.

In the case you can not attend the event, logs will be linked in the schedule as soon as they become available. For On Air! sessions, they will be available at the Ubuntu on Air! YouTube Channel. Hope to see you all there!

Ubuntu Open Week for Trusty: Call for Instructors

ubuntu-openweek-small

So it’s this time of the year again! As the end of the current cycle approaches, the Ubuntu Classroom Team is starting the planning of the next Ubuntu Open Week, for the Trusty cycle.

The Ubuntu Open Week is a series of classroom sessions which will guide many people in their way for contributing to the Ubuntu community. For this, we need actual Ubuntu contributors from different teams to help us run one-hour sessions, explaning what you do on the team you currently work on, as well as how to get started working on the team. We have three days with 5 one-hour slots each, making it 15 slots in total. The event is scheduled to run from 15 to 20 UTC, from the 22nd to the 24th April.

If you are interested in running a session, please send an email to myself (jose at ubuntu.com), ubuntu-classroom at lists.ubuntu.com, or let us know on IRC at the #ubuntu-classroom-backstage channel on irc.freenode.net. Logs from out past Open Week can be found here. Please, make sure to give the link to this announcement to anyone who may be interested in running a session. Thank you for your interest!
