In my interview the Imthiaz, group’s co-founder, he has mentioned that training session will be organized soon and they meant it. Today, the group decided to have two training sessions of different level agendas:

Training 1 (Linux for Newbies):

  • Installing Ubuntu 9.04
  • Working with KDE
  • Working with Gnome

After that the 2nd level comes in…

Training 2 (Linux for Intermediate):

  • Install / compile software
  • Connect / share files on network
  • Making Linux your media center

The team is ready to help everyone around and bringing your notebook / laptop along is in good help; team will be distribute LIVE CD for immediate practice and you can keep for home training and practices after that, so you can call it freebie.

And finally comes the mingle with the guys who are available on the forum for daily discussions about the subject
