Introduction to FLOSS Manuals by Adam Hyde
21.00, Friday 20 Nov at WORM, Achterhaven 148, Rotterdam
http://agenda.wormweb.nl/agenda.php?id=2888

Ardour is a full-featured, free and open-source hard disk recorder and 
digital audio workstation software suitable for professional use. New 
and experienced users of Ardour are invited to "learn by documenting" 
during this combination workshop and book sprint.

A book sprint brings together a group of writers, editors and artists to 
go from an outline to a published book in just five days. We will use 
this format to give workshop participants tasks which they will learn to 
complete in Ardour, and which they will then document for the Ardour 
FLOSS Manual. This is an exciting opportunity both to acquire new skills 
as well as share them with others in the form of a book!

The workshop will be split into two sessions: an evening session 
focusing on learning the software and creating chapters for the FLOSS 
Manual, and an afternoon session focusing on editing, proofreading and 
correcting the workshop texts. At the end of the week, we hope to have a 
beginner's manual covering these and other topics:
