Ubuntu Quantal OpenWeek and Ask Mark!: October 24th-26th
In just eight 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 and On Air! 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) for IRC, and www.ubuntuonair.com for On Air!.
This cycle it will start on October 24th, and finish October 26th each day with sessions from 13 to 18 UTC, having a special Ask Mark! session on Thursday, at 10 UTC. All sessions on Wednesday and Thursday will run as usual, on IRC (links above), and on Friday, we’ll close up with some Ubuntu on Air! sessions, so you can actually see the instructors.
During the “Ask Mark” session, community members are invited to ask Mark Shuttleworth (sabdfl) questions about the Ubuntu project.
