[bulug] Re: BUILDS intro to Linux

Hi,

If the classes are late enough (>9:00PM) I could maybe teach one or two of them. If desired, I can discuss why Linux and free software are worthwhile, which might be easier for beginners to handle than something largely technical.

I don't yet have internet at my residence, so I may be hard to get ahold of unless any of you have my phone number.

Apologies for the webmail formatting...

Hi everyone,

My name is John-Nicholas Furst and in case we have not met allow me
to
introduce myself; I am a sophomore in the College of Engineering
and I am
the BU Linux Users Group Secretary this year. I am also an officer
of the
Boston University Information Lab and Design Studio (BUILDS)
located at MCS
B28.

BUILDS is hosting a series of Linux classes / workshops for its
members and
the general BU community. Currently there are three classes planed
(Introduction,Intermediate, and Advanced) to be ran consecutively
over the
course of a few weeks. This setup allows interested parties to
start with no
Linux experience at all and have seamless transition between the
intro class
and the intermediate and similarly with the
intermediate-advanced transition.

Our current syllabus for the introduction course can be found at:
http://builds.cc/wiki/index.php?title=Intro_to_Linux[1]

  <http://builds.cc/wiki/index.php?title=Intro_to_Linux>To[2] be
able to login
and edit the page one will need a builds account which is easily
obtained
at: http://builds.cc/membership/[3]

I am writing to ask if LUG wants to co-sponsor or teach the
workshop with us
or if anyone has suggestions for alternations to the syllabus. Also
as
mentioned above the workshop will be open to everyone and of course
free, so
if any LUG members know other people who want to learn Linux this
would be a
great starting point.

Please feel free to contact me any questions,comments,concerns!
