I will be posting the class plans about a month in advance. So that way you can plan each time along the way what you want to do.
For the first month, the thursday class will be focusing on down and gritty HTML5. We'll be writing and posting a lot of samples. the idea will be prepping for an eventual creation of our own theme in Wordpress.
For that same month the Weekend class will be focusing on Wordpress Authoring, Editing, Administrating, installing existing themes, and plugins, adding widgets and manipulating them. Essentially getting the ins and outs of WordPress from a pre-programmer perspective. But programmers unfamiliar with Wordpress need this month's classes, because it is going to lay the groundwork for the next month's class.
After the first month, both classes will join together on a Saturday to understand Subversion. Subversion is essentially unlimited undo for the life of a project, whether that project is a programming project, or some other project unrelated to programming. The subversion class will be a four hour workshop blast. There are going to be lots of practice sessions.��
Students moving on with any of the other classes after that (about a month or so from now) will have to demonstrate a usable knowledge of Subversion (whether from my class or learning from another source). Why? Because the courses after that are going to be intensive hands on, so you're going to need to know how to back up and recover your stuff, not just at its current state, but through all of its modifications. Subversion provides that capability.
The Subversion class is one of the classes I will be charging because it's going to entail a lot of time and effort on my part (more than usual). So the fee there will be $35. As mentioned students do not have to attend my class, if they take the time to learn subversion elsewhere, then they will be able to move forward to other classes.
Hope that helps,

Subject: [webdesign-396] About the Orientations on December 12th and 13th.
Some are confused about what's going on about the Orientations on the 12th and 13th and regarding the Aoirthoir's Toolkit course. So here's the skinny (or fat if you are looking at my belly...):
There will be two classes run each week.
The first will run on Thursday morning at 10am.
The second will run on the weekend at a as yet to be determined day and time. (Discussion with the group will determine this...).
These two classes will be teaching the same subjects albeit in different orders.
The Orientation on Sunday December 12th and Monday December 13th are essentially the same orientation. I am running two of them to give everyone a chance to attend one or the other. The orientation is designed to let everyone know what's going on and how the classes are going to be conducted.
Additionally it will allow members of The 396 team to get with students, set up their student web account, host, mysql database, wordpress installation, Linux shell files and so on. And then to provide to the students all of their sign on information, verify skype tests, and irc tests.
So yes Laptops are very helpful to bring along.
Hope that helps.
Aoirthoir The Bellied.
