The Ubuntu Classroom team is happy to announce that we’ve teamed up with the Documentation and Manual teams to offer a day of Documentation-related Classroom sessions on Sunday, March 2nd.
The day will start off at 16:00 UTC with a session by Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph (pleia2) consisting of a quick tour of all the Documentation resources available, including Desktop, Server, Wiki and Manual.
The next five sessions will give potential contributors an overview of contributing to each of the resources (all times UTC, click on time for link to time conversions.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
