Hey all teaching open sourcerers,
I wanted to share something with you that we (OpenHatch) have been working on through
Google Summer of Code. I mention these things from time to time, but there's nothing
like actually trying something...
The training missions: http://openhatch.org/missions/
We have these automated learning tools we call "Training missions" that John Stumpo
has been putting together through Google Summer of Code. We just deployed an
interactive tool for learning Subversion a few hours ago! I want you guys to try the
new Subversion one.
We also have missions up for learning tar and diff/patch. These apply to non-coders
as well as coders; you need a lot of these skills just to get going in open source land.
Would you give them a shot and tell me what you think?
Or read our little manifesto about what they are, and why we think they're important:
Does it make sense? Is it something that you'd be willing to recommend to people? What
do you like about it, and what don't you?
Educationally (if hurriedly) yours,
Bridge ahead. Pay troll.
