Algorithms in Programming Class 1&2 Logs

The Algorithms in Programming classes have been quite a popular class in Ubuntu Classroom! The first was held on April 13th by Marek Bardoński (bdfhjk) and this week, on April 27th, we had Tomek Garbus (tomek204) come in to give a class.

Logs for both of these classes are available:

Fri Apr 13: Algorithms in Programming Class 1 by Marek Bardoński
Fri Apr 27: Algorithms in Programming Class 2 by Tomek Garbus

Marek routinely blogs about the upcoming classes, notes and more at And you can keep an eye on the Classroom Schedule for other upcoming classes.

OpenWeek ready to go, 2 May – Friday 4 May, call for instructors

The IRC workshop extravaganza known as Ubuntu OpenWeek is ready to go. For those of you not in the know, this is a weeklong (sort of) IRC event where we have instructors and classes on various topics in Ubuntu. The wiki page is now ready to go:

I am looking for instructors (especially those of you who have never given a workshop before) to give classes on Ubuntu. This can range from “How do I use Unity?” to “How do I contribute to Ubuntu development. So if you’re interested in participating, grab a slot or ping me offlist.

Of note, we’ve shortened the “week” to Wednesday through Friday, but the amount of sessions are the same, the days are just a bit longer so we can cover more time zones.
