Brian, Andy, Rachel, Arram and others —
Super! I'm happy to hear that there's so much interest in this idea.
To respond to some of your questions and comments:
> Are you thinking of a multi-day (N saturdays in a row), two-session,
> single-day workshop?
I was originally thinking that a multi-day schedule would allow more
time for learning. It could be once a week for a few weeks, with a
fairly loose structure. I would start out with the most basic
concepts and then progress from there, but of course people would be
encouraged to pursue their own ideas, so I think after covering the
very basics, it would be more like a collaborative workshop and less
of just me talking to the whole group. It also wouldn't be a problem
if someone has to miss a class.
However, now you have me thinking: Maybe it would be better to do a
single-day workshop first, just to gauge the level of interest. In my
experience, though, it's hard to really absorb basic programming
concepts in one day (at least for me -- it helps to spread it out),
but I'd be open to anything.
Rachel: I looked at the wiki, but wasn't sure where to list it.
Should I just go ahead and set up a "planned events" page, or
something like that?
Also, thanks for the offer of a projector. It's great to know that so
much equipment is around and available.
Looking forward to meeting you all in person when I get out there in
