Even if you're an Ubuntu user or you just heard about it and you want to learn more about Ubuntu, you can attend the Ubuntu User Days event this weekend!
Ubuntu User Days will be take place from Saturday 13:30 UTC through Sunday 03:00 UTC on the Ubuntu Classroom IRC channel.
Canonical created the Ubuntu User Days as a set of chat-based classes, distributed during a one day period, in order to teach the Ubuntu beginner or intermediate Linux users the basics of the Ubuntu operating systems.
The event will teach you how to find equivalent apps in Ubuntu, how to get help, how to use the command-line, or how to get involved in the Ubuntu community.
