Subject: [dev-educ] [ClassRooms] First classroom on 7th of May
After some regular discussions with Vincent Vikram and Sankarshan
Mukhopadhyay on IRC,I think we can start the ClassRoom program we
scheduled some times ago.
Objective: help beginners willing to contribute, to discover the
development side of OpenOffice.org project, and try to solve, or at
least provide some light to : " What, Where, Who, How , Whom ask ..."
questions any newcomer asks.
The logs will be put on the wiki, thus all the community will be able
to access the knowledge, and I expect to see the developers I
contacted to confirm they will contribute.
Because this is the first one, we'll start with the beginning, and
I'll (exceptionaly) start myself the ClassRoom.
Proposed Date: Wednesday 7th of May 2008,
Hour : 11:00 ( Paris hour ) ~ 14:30 India hour ( i.e; Vincent
hour ;-) )
Mode: as IRC meeting. Server : irc.freenode.net
1) Discover the OpenOffice.org project
Other points, suggested by Vincent Vikram :
2) where is the code
3) I got the code ... now where do I start in the code ?
4) What do I need to know in advance
5) How good is the documentation documentation
Questions from the attendees
Round table with students, and developers, + define the agenda for
the next ClassRooms, including other questions to be prepared in advance
Suggestions ? Opinions ?
Last but not least, please note carefully:
- we have choosen the IRC way, because unfortunaly, not everybody has
a nice Internet connexion, with good bandwidth, and so on.
- if you have a proposal for a better way of communication, please
propose, and organize it !!
- Everything about the content (the log), and _after_ the
presentation (comments, additional links ..etc) will be on the wiki
- ALL contributions are WELCOME : means such thing will work if and
only if _several_ people join the effort and contribute, because we
have to do everything from scratch.
Action Item: can someone take over to announce the thing on the
Education Project Blog ?
