I'd be interested in that, especially from a Linux perspective.
I've written some applets, and periodically think about updating
my Java knowledge to get more fluent in new stuff like J2EE/Swing,
but I keep hitting problems getting downloaded JDKs to work at all,
and all the Java folks I know are Windows users. I'd also be interested
in a kernel hacking "class", or in scripting languages (perl/python/php
I'd be happy to help folks in the C class with C/C++ questions, too.
Classes like this sound like a great use of Linuxchix.
Maybe we could set a time and meet on the IRC channel?
(Though it's sometimes hard to find a time that works for everyone
when we're halfway around the world from each other ... I love the net.)
Oh, on the other issue, add another vote for keeping the guys. :-)
I've been in some women-only classes where there really was a reason
for excluding men (for example, a self-defense class I took where some
of the students were there because of a past rape experience, and
wouldn't be comfortable acting out attack scenarios with men), but
that doesn't apply here. Linuxchix works nicely the way it is.
