Last week the IRC Council announced they’d be hosting a couple IRC Operator Training Classes.
Today instructor instructor Miia Ranta (Myrtti) led the first class of this series on Introduction to being an IRC operator
Logs for that session are now available online here.
Next week, on Thursday, August 2nd at 13:00 UTC they’ll be hosting the next class, A grand tour of the channels and bots presented by Lorenzo J. Lucchini (LJL). Just like the first, this will be held in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions).
Everyone is welcome to attend, and the IRC Council notes that they “would be delighted to have a strong attendance for these sessions, particularly from those operators who are new this cycle.”
This afternoon Myrtti (Miia Ranta) on behalf of Ubuntu IRC Team instructed a class focusing on IRC basics for Ubuntu IRC Operators. Myrtti taught attendees the basics of IRC and how to work with Network Services and simplify basic tasks by using xchat and irssi aliases.
Myrtti’s class is the “first in a series of fun and interesting classes on being an IRC Operator” said Alan Bell of the Ubuntu IRC Council.
If you were unable to attend the logs from the highly informative class can be obtained at the link below:

The Ubuntu Classroom is welcoming the first in a series of training classes on Being an IRC Operator which will take place at 20:00 UTC on 12th March.
The class will be presented by Myrtti in the #ubuntu-classroom channel, and they will also be going into another channel to have fun practicing with bans and quiets.
Everyone is welcome to attend, including and in particular our current intake of new operators to the core ops team. If anyone can’t attend and wanted to, don’t worry, there will be logs available afterwards.
If you want to attend, please send your freenode NickServ account name (generally the same as your IRC nick) to firstname.lastname@example.org or find Myrtti on freenode so that we can get the practice channel set up in advance for you.
