   I have been looking for some summer chool type crash course in C
   and/or    interesting activit   not (yet) a developer. I n   that the Chemnitz  linuxtag   as if it is for experienced    beginner wannabe hackers who want a crash   or other programmming tools?

   Born to computers for MS-DOS (and, to a lesser extent, to VAX-VMS) ,
   in    FreeBSD (and    PASCAL in school (go gues   gw-BASIC after that. That was over 10    when I read about new developing tools like gla   simply don't get the concept. I'm lost. As we Portugues   «like a donkey looking at a palace».

   The free software community offers lots of programs and projects in
   many   That is t   make programs to    do are economic model ba   spreadsheet, but I would rather make a n   available for everyone. For that, both competen   and computing areas are necessary. That brings me to    wishes:
    1. I wish there were free software programming crash courses for
       beginners       community event and gath       those who want to contribute for the a       software in all areas of thought and all ciences and al       activities and not just be passive users. It could be just at free
       softwa       summer schools, for e    2. I wish there was a place where I could meet more people in my
       academic        doing things and making    3. I wish there was a place for mentoring from programmers and
   Please notice that I am not demanding, I am willing to contribute to
   If You can help me or know someone that could help me let me know.
