We train software companies and their developers how (and why!) to contribute code to free software projects, through online mentoring. Thus, our target audience is both businesses and free software developers alike.
We need an A5 flyer, front and back, for use in conferences. Designers should follow the basic visual concepts on http://upstream-university.org, but are of course free to innovate in a way that will work better on paper.
Content will be based on the current website, and should specifically include:
"Have a hard time getting patches accepted?"
"Lack the time and focus to merge your changes?"
"Learn how to contribute easily and efficiently!"
"Apply at upstream-university.org"
Next session: August 2012
2-week Course Outline:
Module 1: Participating in online comunities: 2hrs
Module 2: Agile Training: 6hrs
Module 3: Daily Mentoring: 8hrs
Module 4: Retrospective: 4hrs
"I am really glad to see that something like this is out there. (...) [The student's] code contributions have improved dramatically." - Dan Bode, Core Developer at Puppet Labs

Feel free to suggest changes to the content, if you find it necessary to better communicate the idea.
I do not have a preconceived notion of what a good flyer looks like. Feel free to instruct me. :)
