Global remark● An OLPC deployment is a complex project● Several challenges ○ Logistic ○ Technical ○ Energetic ○ Human● Wont be done in one go; iterative and incremental process on the long run.
Keep in mind that● Its an education project, not a laptop project ○ Sugar is no more than a tool for the teaching ○ The XO is no more than a tool to run Sugar● Focus on the education ○ Educate the kids ○ Educate the educators
About the infrastructure ...● Dont focus too much on Internet access ○ Lack of relevant content● Pay attention to electricity● Look at the transport of all the material that is/will be needed

What you can use online● The definitive guide about deployments: ○ http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Deployment_Guide● There are a lot of videos and wiki pages (a bit messy though) about OLPC deployments● Relevant to do some testing : ○ http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Contributors_program
