    I have a couple of questions:

    What is the format of the lesson, will video lectures be performed?

    Is the information from these session being archived and accessible after the live event. If so, where would I find this?

    Hey Jono,

    I love the opportunistic idea and breaking down barriers that only get in the way. One question: With new Gnome-centric languages emerging do you think that eventually something like Genie might get more traction. With more and more low powered mobile devices a compiled language might have future. Maybe you and Stu could discuss Genie/Vala in a shot?

    I have to remove the links to the Gnome Genie website and to the Genie wikipedia page or my comment wouldn’t appear. Your spam filter is evil :P

  • Pete

    Any chance you could add the slides to the UbuntuOpportunisticDeveloperWeek wiki page?

    In particular, the CouchDB session..

    Thanks!
