Key Details

It's worth mentioning that we have decided not to be a social group but a group of qualified people to spread the word about GNU/Linux Ubuntu Distribution in many ways and places.

Roadmap

Our main goal is to spread the word about GNU/Linux Ubuntu Distribution therefore we are conducting FLOSS Lectures, Ubuntu Desktop Course, Installation Workshops/festivals and planning for other activities to build a qualified community such as LPI 101, 102 courses, Packaging jam, Translation How-to.

Experience

So far we achieved the following

  • Ubuntu Desktop Course at Jordan University
    • It was a good experience although we had to play a bit with the official materials as students weren't satisfied with it so we added three chapters from LPI 101 course to bridge the two courses together [ Linux Installation & Package Management, GNU & Unix Commands and Devices, Linux Filesystems, Filesystem Hierarchy Standard]

  • FLOSS Introductory lecture, Jordan University and Princess Sumaya University
  • Installation festival ( We will have to do workshops instead of installation festival as many students facing difficulties in getting their computers inside the university) So far we did it twice at Jordan University and Princess Sumaya University
