Ubuntu User Days — This Weekend!

This weekend from Saturday 13:30 UTC through Sunday 03:00 UTC the Classroom team will be hosting Ubuntu User Days!

User Days was created to be a set of chat-based classes offered during a one day period to teach the beginning or intermediate Ubuntu user the basics to get them started with Ubuntu. User Days sessions include:

  • find equivalent programs in Ubuntu
  • learn how to get help
  • learn the basics of how to use the command line in Ubuntu
  • learn how to get involved in the community

So join us by coming to #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions) this weekend!
