Re: sponsoring a GNOME developer training session at Fedora Action Day Ghana

Hi Ben,

Your reply today popped this back to the top of my TODO list - I've been
meaning to reply since you sent this.

I have some training materials for some of these. Specifically, I ran a
session at the MeeGo conference in November where we took people through
getting code out of git, making changes, commits, pushes and merges,
fixing bugs using gdb, and identifying and fixing a profiling issue with
valgrind. The material is all in github & is reusable:

I also have the training material I used from the GNOME developer
training at GUADEC last year, which included an overview of the GNOME
platform from Fernando Herrera and a review of developer tools from Xan
Lopez and Claudio Saavedra. I need to get them online somewhere still...

I agree that's a great goal.
