Fascinating. Announced today:
We are really pleased to announce Ubuntu Open Week!
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.
IRC -- Internet Relay Chat -- is an old (pre-Web) conferencing model, like IM for groups. Chat rooms, if you're of a certain age. So we're talking about opt-in lessons at what I'm thinking will be low cost.
Check the calendar. It reminds me of General Assembly in a way, which would be a plus, even if you intend to go to Salt Lake City.
Later. This is post #2500.
