Sorry. You have misunderstood that. The first part was a story about the studying days and which people have been there.
100 students would be too much. I would bring only 2 students (from Bochum and Villingen-Schwenningen) with me.
I add them on CC.

I asked my fellow students (from Bochum and Villingen-Schwenningen) and we have got some ideas:
- "real" Ruby for Beginners and Advanced
- Java API
- creating Linux kernel patches
- openSUSE on different hardware platforms and the performance (openSUSE on SPARC was interesting)
- Linux Security
The other students can give more ideas here, too.
Your wife is right. The time was short and it was focused on too wide an audience. Advanced don't want to create a "Hello world" or learn Basics.
Beginners can't begin on advanced level. You need some different workshops or something about many days, what succeed.
How about a workshop like 2011 held by Pascal? It extended over many days, but all were able to learn new things.
