Call for Instructors: Ubuntu User Days on June 23-24th 2012

We’ll be hosting our next Ubuntu User Days on Saturday June the 23rd, 14:30 UTC – Sunday the 24th 2012, 3:00 UTC.

“User Days was created to be a set of courses offered during a one day period to teach the beginning or intermediate Ubuntu user the basics to get them started with Ubuntu”

In order for this event to be a success, we need instructors to lead sessions.

To volunteer to lead a session, you can contact a member of the Ubuntu User Days Team by sending an email to myself (lyz at ubuntu.com), the ubuntu-classroom at lists.ubuntu.com mailing list or by contacting us on IRC by stopping by #ubuntu-classroom-backstage on irc.freenode.net.

If you are unsure of a topic for your session, you can visit the Course Suggestions page:

Ask Mark on May 1st & Ubuntu Open Week from May 2-4

In just seven years, Ubuntu has become one of the most popular Linux distributions in the world with millions of users and a thriving community. Ever wondered what all the fuss is about? How have we achieved such a great feat in such a short space of time? Here’s where you can find out. Ubuntu Open Week is a week of IRC tuition and Q+A sessions all about getting involved in the rock-and-roll world that is the Ubuntu community. We organise this week for the beginning of a new release cycle to help new contributors get involved.

Ubuntu Open Week takes place in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions).

This cycle we’ve condensed it to 3 days, from May 2nd through 4th and have a special “Ask Mark” session on May 1st at 21:00 UTC.

During the “Ask Mark” session, community members are invited to ask Mark Shuttleworth (sabdfl) questions about the Ubuntu project. You will ask your questions in #ubuntu-classroom-chat with the prefix QUESTION: and DJones will be selecting specific questions to pass along to Mark in the main #ubuntu-classroom channel.

Then, from May 2-4 from 13:00 through 18:00 UTC, we will be hosting several sessions including:

  • Scaling wordpress with juju, the OMG!Ubuntu! story
  • Gaming on Ubuntu
  • Submitting your apps to the Ubuntu Software Centre
  • Ubuntu Development – how it all works
  • Starting, Maintaining & Expanding Ubuntu Hours
  • How to contribute translating Ubuntu
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Users

And much more! To check out the full schedule and learn more about the event, visit the Ubuntu Open Week page on the Ubuntu wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOpenWeek

We hope to see you there! But if not, as always, logs will be available after each session.
