Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Training (incubating) Proposal
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2019 22:55:06 GMT
Hi Mike,

there is not really a specific target group for these trainings. It is
our feeling, that there are a large number of parties out there that
could benefit from properly maintained training materials for open
source software.

We noticed a few issues around training when talking to other
companies recently, that sparked the idea for this proposal.

- Writing training material is hard and takes time
- Keeping training material up to date is even harder
- Everybody has the same tooling issues (i.e. how to keep Powerpoints
under version control) around this

The cumulative effort for those items is quite often too large for all
but the largest companies, because usually you just spend time on this
when someone pays for a training.

So our intention is for this project to become a platform for
trainings on all kinds of topics - probably mostly on specific
software projects, but I see no reason why there should not be a
training on for example "The Apache way" as well.

So in summary, your answer "it is all of that" probably was correct :)

I hope that helps, of not, please don't hesitate to get back to us!

Best regards,
Sönke

I think your anwer "it is all of that" best fits our intentions :)
