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!

Ubuntu Open Week for Raring: Almost Here!

ubuntu-openweek-small-new

In just nine 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), on May 20th-21st, from 13 to 18 UTC each day. We will be having people from different teams in, such as the Quality team, the Development team, the News team, and more! We are also going to have an “Ask Mark!” session with Mark Shuttleworth, the Ubuntu Community founder!

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 philipballew will be selecting specific questions to pass along to Mark in the main #ubuntu-classroom channel.

To check out the full schedule and learn more about the event, visit the Ubuntu Open Week page on the Ubuntu wiki (we’re finishing to nail the schedule!)

We hope to see you there! But if not, as always, logs will be available after each session, and linked to the schedule at the end of each day.

Ubuntu Open Week for Raring: Call for Instructors

The Ubuntu Open Week is one of the big Classroom events we have each cycle. This time, it will be taking place the 21st and the 22nd of May, and sessions will last from 13 to 18 UTC. For those of you who do not know what this is all about, it is a community-oriented and community-driven event where people from different teams explain what work they do in the community, so you can choose the areas you like the most, and help us grow as a strong community. You can find more information about it in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuOpenWeek.

Now, we are looking for people who have been involved with a team for a long time, and would like to explain clearly how things work on it. That way, people around the world would be encouraged to join in what they like the most. During this cycle we will only be hosting sessions during two days, and they will only be on IRC.

If you want to take a slot just grab it, but make sure to let me (JoseeAntonioR on #ubuntu-classroom-backstage on freenode, joseeantonior at ubuntu dot com) know, by pinging me on IRC or sending me an email. Also, make sure to pass on this announcement to anyone who can be interested on being part of this event. Thanks for your interest!
