http://dot.kde.org – Early on in the lifetime of the KDE Community Forums, the staff launched regularly-held courses for people willing to help KDE called "Klassrooms". For each of these courses, a mentor (usually a KDE contributor, but not limited to them) guided a group of "students" towards a simple, definite goal that would improve KDE, for example fixing simple bugs in an application. However, the courses were not limited to coding: documentation, promo and other important areas were handled as well. Since they were held on the forums, Klassrooms possessed an advantage over real-time courses: students could progress at their own pace and the mentor was able to oversee the development even with limited time at his/her disposal. Due to the large growth of the KDE Community Forums over the last year, the staff had to focus on improving the forums themselves and so there was little or no time to hold new Klassrooms. Until today ... The KDE Community Forums team is pleased to announce a call for new Klassroom mentors, to allow increased effort to be focussed on these courses. The existing staff are already quite busy keeping the forum up and running, so this will provide the initiative with dedicated resources. read more (Software)
