Debian Women IRC Training Sessions

The Debian Women project is pleased to announce the forthcoming start
of a series of training sessions which will be held on IRC by
experienced community members. The main goal of this initiative is to
encourage more people, and specifically women, to contribute to Debian
while introducing them to different aspects of the Debian Project.
Topics will span over a wide range of subjects related to daily Debian
maintenance efforts as well as advanced tasks. These sessions are
organized by the Debian Women project on its IRC channel (#debian-women
on irc.debian.org) and are open to everybody, regardless of gender or
previous involvements in the community.

First session has been scheduled for Thursday, 18th November at 20:00
UTC. Lars Wirzenius, a long-standing Debian Developer, will give an
introductory lesson titled "Introduction to Debian Packaging".

Future sessions will be held on a regular basis, and will cover
collaborative maintenance with git, Python modules and applications
packaging, and many more. Please visit the official wiki page [1]
regularly to check the up-to-date agenda and follow our group on
identi.ca [2]. You may also refer to the wiki to suggest new topics or
sign up yourself as a trainer: we are always looking for more people to
share knowledge and complete the schedule, so don't be shy!
