Revision as of 17:08, 8 February 2015 by Avni (Talk | contribs)

Welcome to Kids on Computers! We're so excited to have you volunteer with us. Here's a guide on how we communicate, how we operate and how to get started volunteering with us.


Mailing Lists We communicate mostly via mailing lists and our monthly meeting. Sign up for our mailing list here: http://lists.kidsoncomputers.org/listinfo.cgi/kidsoncomputers-kidsoncomputers.org


Web Site http://www.kidsoncomputers.org . It's a Wordpress site. If you'd like to add content, please email the list to ask for an account.


Blog Our blog is hosted on our web site at: http://www.kidsoncomputers.org/blog. It's also on Wordpress. We'd love to have folks contribute blog postings about work they're doing with KOC. Even just a picture with a caption will suffice! Email the list for an account.


Wiki Our wiki is at wiki.kidsoncomputers.org . There are some useful nuggets of info here, but could also use some work in organizing and adding content. We have some technical info about distros and installation procedures, but not as well organized as we'd like. Email the list for an account.


Inventory We maintain an inventory of donated equipment at glpi.kidsoncomputers.org. Email the list for login info.


Meeting Notes Notes from our monthly meetings (and other ad-hoc meetings) are maintained in Etherpad, hosted by Mozilla. Start at https://koc.etherpad.mozilla.org/ 1 and going up to roughly https://koc.etherpad.mozilla.org/ 57 Monthly meetings occur on the third Thursday of every month via Skype.
