At last after a month of rooming at #education.openoffice.org I started coding. It is big relief. Few days back ericb started a game of fixing warnings in old module binfilter which is not used much in OOo now. But as it goes any project needs to keep warnings as low as possible.
/me has some experience with python, perl, C but nothing with C++ but this game seems to be nice way to get started. ;-) So, I started an effort. And I am updating here about my progress on daily basis now.
It has been a wonderful experience at verious classrooms and sessions held on #irc channel.
Keep tuned will post about experience with classrooms in detail some time soon.
