Next Ubuntu Open Week Announced!

Today we are proud to announce the schedule for the next Ubuntu Open Week, which takes place from the 2nd – 6th November 2009.

Ubuntu Open Week is a week of free live online tuition and Q+A sessions that are provided on a range of topics by many of the movers and shakers in out community. If you are interested in getting involved in the Ubuntu community, this is an incredible opportunity to learn many of the skills involved, meet many of our contributors and just have a great time!

The way the sessions work is pretty simple, and everything is explained here. You simply join two discussion channels, one in which you watch the session leader deliver a session and the other to ask questions in. This year we even have a web based interface to the sessions, so it is easier than ever to get involved!

The schedule for Ubuntu Open Week is looking incredible:

    Jono, Is the .ics file correct? I couldn’t see the open week events in it, or in the URL.
