Introduction to PS:One: N00bs’ Paradise March 24th at 4pm

Are you interested in learning about PS:One or are generally just new around here?

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, and you’re hardly alone.

We’ve decided to create a formal way of teaching curious new folk how the PS:One community works.

Meet with PS:One old-timers (including at least one former president) to learn the many ways to get involved, and the opportunities available to PS:One members, plus hacks for getting around easier.

You’ll learn:

  • the one and only rule you need to remember at PS:One!
  • what mailing lists and IRC channels you should join
  • how to get discounts on classes, tee-shirts, stuff around town, and even monthly dues!
  • how to get certified on equipment
  • how to donate equipment to PS:One
  • how to create a class, event, group, meeting, or what have you
  • how to request a class, event, group, whatever
  • how to blog
  • the wiki.
  • do-ocracy and how to do-ocratize things

The basics:

  • Who: anyone who wants to learn more about PS:One and how it works
  • When: Sunday March 24th, 4 pm until about 6pm
  • Where: PS:One 1st floor lounge
  • Cost: free

Here are the class notes – please feel free to read beforehand (Note: these notes are not a good substitute for class attendance).
