This week one of our behind-the-scenes-projects is tidying up the Free I.T. Athens YouTube page so volunteers can more effectively provide information to the community. While we’re working on new videos and tutorials, I thought I’d give you a digital tour of what you can find there already.
Free Software Tutorials
Well, one tutorial anyway. Today we uploaded our very first free software tutorial, covering the basics of LibreOffice Writer. This handy word processor comes with all the computers at Free I.T. This video covers the very basics of how to use it.
We want to put together tutorials that YOU find useful! Let us know what kind of videos you’d like to see Free I.T. Athens make by leaving a comment on the Free I.T. Facebook page, tweeting us @FreeITAthens, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once a month, Lachele puts on a presentation/discussion session we call “Noob Hour.” These workshops are typically held on the first Wednesday of the month which happens to be the same day CHUGALUG meets. The idea is that you can attend a Noob Hour and learn about a topic and then stick around for a deep dive with other GNU/Linux geeks at the CHUGALUG meeting. So far we have three Noob Hour recordings with a fourth one on the way.
Check out chugalug.uga.edu/ for more information about this great group.
