Being a native US resident I hope that it qualifies me for english
language comptenece :)

I have taught several classes ranging from simple programming introduction
level classes (java, perl, html, i know html is not programming...). I
have also done many lectures for local computer user groups, mostly having
to do with Internet technology. This involved laying out the
lecture/class, organizing content, research, and preparing any
audio/visual that would be needed. This was from the ground up, so I have
no problem talking to large groups nor coming up with material for topics.

Fortunately my position grants me a few benifits, one of which is paid
conferences. This and the fact that if it wasn't paid for, I would foot
the bill in the interest of the Debian Project.
