Ubuntu Open Week – another IRC teach-in

Your ‘umble scribe picked his title ih haste, as it’s actually a series of teach-ins. 😉

Ubuntu Open Week is currently underway from Mon 2 May – Fri 6 May on IRC in #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat between 14.00 and 18.00 hrs UTC.

In just 7 years, Ubuntu has become one of the world’s most popular Linux distributions and a thriving community. If you’re curious to find out how this has been achieved, this is where you can find out. 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.

One of the highlights of the week will be on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011, when Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of the Ubuntu Project, will host the “Ask Mark” open Q and A session at starting at 14:00 UTC.

More details are available on the Ubuntu wiki.
