What’s next?

Well, we did not plan the second part of the year yet, because, as usual, we’re open to suggestion, and we always welcome new people who want to share their knowledge! Feel free to reach out if you’d be interested in becoming a “trainer” for the time of a workshop!

More…

Feel free to join us! All those workshops are free, and you don’t need to register to attend them. Just be there when they’re happening, with a laptop, a mouse with a wheel and of course, the latest version of the concerned software package installed (Blender, Inkscape, etc).

Some new activities might be added to the agenda, as we also organize other stuff (free or paid) outside of this “regular” schedule 🙂

Registration on the forums is still closed to the public, due to a high amount of spam/flood… We’re very sorry about that, but you can still register: come to a workshop and speak out, or contact David or Quentin.
