edu 2.0 part II

a supportive space for developers and apprentices
on open source projects to gather and ply their trade.


here are the rough categories i feel are important to developers
coming of age right now, especially in developing areas like india.

video & media production : fcp / premiere / ...
design : photoshop / flash ...
web development : flash / css / dreamweaver / ...
content management : civicspace / sugarcrm / ...
development : php / ruby / java / javascript / ajax ...
frameworks : rails / hibernate / dojo ...
database : mysql / postres ...
sysadmin : linux
networking : wifi / mesh / traditional ...
financing : ...
ecommerce : ...
logistics & import / export : ...

an interesting excersize is to go thru this list
and look for existing foundations which serve these
spaces now

video: node101, pixelcorps.com
cms: civicspace.org
ajax: dojo foundation
frameworks: apache foundation
database: ...

please let me know suggestions for others.


note:
video blogging is especially important to the mix
as the video people can create training videos from the experiences
of everyone else learning how to use their respective technologies.
this increases visibility for the vertical "expert", the videographer,
and also adds to the global knowledgebase, helping other people pick
up the technology easier.
