Project idea edit

What is the problem you're trying to solve? edit

The problem is that learning wiki mark up or a computer language can be difficult for new users to get started since there are many languages and too many tools to choose from.

What is your solution? edit

The idea is to streamline learning into some kind of online and offline training to teach new editors wiki mark up or basic programming skills. The training would be both online sites paired with offline and ongoing meet ups.

Project goals edit

To teach new users a set skills of Wiki mark up and/or programming skills.
