Open FOSS Training

Open FOSS Training

Over the years, I’ve ranted and complained about the state of FOSS documentation and the barrier to entry for the casual user. With mixed success, I’ve championed various efforts to provide FOSS training and documentation. Recently, I was contacted by a friend of mine who has put together a team of individuals dedicated to providing accessible, easy to digest online videos.

The the production of these videos is being funded by an Indiegogo campaign. They’ve had some great contributions thus far, but they still need your help. If you’re interested in seeing an improvement to FOSS documentation and also the production of quality of FOSS training videos, I’d suggest giving what you can to their campaign.

Have you ever wanted to get started with Free and Open Source Software but couldn’t find clear easy to follow documentation to get you started? The end goal of the project is to create easy to follow videos and documentation that will be freely available to the community to help get you started with Free and Open Source Software. “
