What charm schools, etc should we run?

Notes:

Brighttalk now has ipod/ipad apps to record video offline.

Where to announce webinars/streams:

- juju mailing list
- Planet -> Ubuntu Weekly News
- "The usual suspects", Facebook, reddit, ubuntu social networks <-- but a bunch of these are general user audience, not devops.
- Tell people we can do ondemand charm schools, and advertise that.

= What do people want to see? =

Webinars are too one way, need a discussion for a charm school to be successful.
Ensure basic concepts are well known: service orchestration through handshaking
Do we want more advanced content? YES. Relation orchestration, use with puppet...
Needs to be more interactive (G+).
More screencasts before the interactive session, needs to be findable, so users can
 **** Put videos in the DOCUMENTATION. ****
G+ is the best way to go, IRC isn't a good way to do a charm school.
More MAAS/private cloud content that doesn't mention public cloud stuff, it's hard to evangelize at a large company about juju if there's a perception that it's public cloud specific.

== Screencast Snippets Topics ==

One screencast per question!! So you can mix and match the videos to organize them. This way customers can pick and choose their topics.

* Anatomy of a Charm
* Writing your first charm
* Best practices for charms
* Advanced Topics, moving between clouds.
* Juju WORST Practices / Lessons Learned - do not depend on timing, lack of idempotence, dpkg lock, etc
* Bare metal deployments with MAAS

Snippets inserted into Documents/Ask Ubuntu to answer specific questions.
