Jathan is a Debian Developer and a passionate Debian enthusiast since 2008. He loves to use Debian in his daily life as in work. He has helped doing po.debconf templates translations to Spanish, organised Debian events in Mexico, helped in some DebConf's tasks, in the Video Team and a little bit in the Reproducible Builds Team learning and giving some talks. He started the Debian Academy project, although its work has been paused by the moment. Currently he is pushing the usage of Mobian on the PinePhone among Free Software users and Systems Engineers in Mexico.
There are currently different ways to get started in the world of Debian, as in its community and as an operating system. In order to make Debian more welcoming and to allow new people interested in the project to learn in a more friendly and pleasant way, it is necessary to have an own platform of courses about Debian, in which having contents of different subjects related to the technical as well as to the social thing within Debian, an approach of new enthusiasts and future collaborators is achieved.
This BoF has the purpose to retake the work of what some people were doing during the last two years regarding to start this E-Learning platform for the Debian Project based on the talk “Debian Academy: Another way to share knowlegde about Debian” presented at DebConf20 Online: http://saimei.ftp.acc.umu.se/pub/debian-meetings/2020/DebConf20/30-debian-academy-another-way-to-share-knowlegde-about-debian.webm, what we have achieved and what is needed to keep going forward.
