View Full Version : Ubuntu Classroom: My Summary, Review, and Transcripts

August 9th, 2006, 04:58 PM
Last August 5, 2006, the first Ubuntu Classroom session was held over the IRC (or Internet Relay Chat). The topic was "Introduction to IRC", covering how to use irssi (discussed by hybrid) and Konversation (discussed by nixternal). It was quite an experience, at least for me. :D

Here's my blog post about our first day of class:

It includes a short summary and "review" of the first day, and links to the transcripts (a.k.a. edited log files) I made of the lessons.

(Contents of the text in the transcripts are from the instructors, hybrid and nixternal.)

To those who weren't able to attend, there will be more classes to come with other interesting topics.

To those who don't know what I'm talking about, read this: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Classroom

NOTE: The instructors said they will publish the logs of the lessons on their wiki page. I will provide a link here as soon as it is available.

Interesting. I may have to drop in on a class sometime.

Transcript of the second class now available:


The second session of the Ubuntu Classroom was held just a few days ago. This time the topic was on the basic use of the command line. The Command Line Interface (CLI) or command line, for short, is one of the most powerful tools in Linux, for which it is both famous and notorious. It is fast, exact, and efficient. But like anything else, it needs a bit of patience and effort to master. But the rewards and benefits are definitely worth it. Of course, the path of the command line may not be for everyone, but it still pays to know your basics.
