At the Ubuntu Developer Summit Lucid a couple of weeks ago, there was a discussion for extending Ubuntu Open Week throughout the release cycle by having a few smaller “days” in #ubuntu-classroom which were devoted to certain things. So the current plan is to have a “Ubuntu User Day” where a series of beginner level sessions would take place. Our vision is for this to happen on a Saturday and probably last 8-10 hours. This depends on getting volunteers to lead sessions and we’re working on that.
The first User Day is scheduled for January 23rd, Saturday, from 1200 UTC to 2200 UTC, which comes to 1730 IST to 0330 IST. It drags a bit late, but that is to accommodate a wide range of time zones.
Right now, we don’t have many volunteers, so we’re looking for a bit of participation both in terms of teachers and participants too. I’d like to re-emphasize that most of this is going to be beginners friendly.
Thanks for your help and hope to see you there.
