Greetings and video idea

Andrew Crouthamel
Hello everyone,

Some of you may have met me on IRC already as "Perigee", to the others who have not, hi!

I've recently joined QA and will be testing the daily branch on a number of computers I have. But, I'd also like to offer something in addition to that. I suppose it falls under Documentation.

My side business is producing IT training videos. If you do a little Googling on my name you'll probably find a few examples such as my YouTube channel where I've uploaded a full CCNA course for free, courses for Pluralsight and Packt Publishing I've done, and other stuff. I'm also a Cisco Academy Instructor and teach at a local community college.

I'd like to produce some Xubuntu training videos if the team thinks that would be beneficial, and hopefully we could nail down some of those details here if you do. From some initial discussions about it on IRC, it sounded like a good idea.

At this point I'd like to open this up for comments and questions, and we can then move on to details such as content.

So, I'll continue here with a list of video ideas. Each one will be less than 10 minutes, so they will be quick How-To's to get people up and running, give them a quick synopsis on how to use a program, or some popular examples of programs (that do their best to adhere to the Strategy Document) to use in a certain situation. They are very basic to start, then can get more in-depth:
  • An overview of the Xubuntu desktop
  • Connecting to your home network and the Internet
  • Browsing the Internet
  • Editing office documents
  • Reading email
  • Chatting with friends
  • Browsing local and network files
  • Adding a printer
  • Installing new software
  • Using proprietary drivers
  • Adding PPA's
  • Playing video games
  • Watching videos and music
  • Ripping CDs and DVDs
  • Burning CDs and DVDs
  • Reading and scanning PDF documents
  • Editing raster and vector graphics
  • Editing audio
  • Editing video
  • Customizing the panel and menu
  • Changing application appearance
  • Improving laptop battery performance
  • Running virtual machines
  • Developing on Linux
  • Contributing to Xubuntu

Just a err on the side of caution here in many countries it is illegal
to rip cd's and dvd's  burning things like distribution cd's dvds
should be fine but I would steer clear of anything that may be
misconstrued as illegal.

Good point. Anything that seems missing? I know I thought of something earlier, but forgot now.
