Yeah I think it will be a good ideas to talk about
As for me the only thing i find unfortunate is the fact
that all the open sources software projects i have seen up to
now are made for people having knowledge in Programming.
An if there's one question that i always have in mind is :
What does it take to become a developer and contributes to
other projects because is obvious that you can't over forward
if you can't find your way around and OS not to talk about an
IDE, when i look at Pharo where they say :ÂÂ(think
IDE and OS rolled into one).
Been based in Africa i am among those that believe Open
source may be the answer to most of our problems here but the
most difficulty that i have is to find materials that are
organize by teachers to train enthusiast .
I instead have the impression that the materials that are
used in schools are not available in the public domain.
Except if am not able to find them.
To put it simpler one thing i would have dream of would
have been to have materials that could be use even on self
pace to acquire some programming knowledge at least enough to
get started and be able to contributes to other projects .
If i take Âexample of DIGITAL LITERACY or even COMPUTER
LITERACY the most common materials that i have discovered is
based on MS tools up to now i have never seen something on
Linux or even Unix , not to talk about projects that could be
used offline. to teach or even learn programming.
Hope to see some people do something in future like that as
for me am whiling to also collaborate with any one interested.
