Build It Event report
The two sessions of the Build It Event were held on Saturday, in both
of them we had an audience of 10 to 15 "talking" people, I don't know
how many other people were following but not commenting.
Both logs are available at:
(The second one is a bit better regarding the tutorial part, the first
one was buggy)
I think the event went quite well both times. Most people were able
to follow along, were happy with the results and had interesting
questions. Even though we had suggested a separation by timezone, we
had someone from Brazil in the first session, a couple of people from
Europe on the second one, and also 2 people from Africa in the second
one. That last fact made me happy :), I hope we can have more people
from Africa in Debian.
When she has time, Mònica is going to update the tutorial, which was
already in the wiki at http://wiki.debian.org/BuildingTutorial, with
the current info from this tutorial.
Many of the attendees asked for more tutorials. I think this is a
great initiative and that we need to keep doing it. However, I'm
afraid that we might not be reaching enough women, the ratio of
men/women in the attendees was still towards the male side :-\
