This is a command line tools hands on practice session with a twist!
1. We split up into groups of maybe 3-5 people per group, with at least one person with some *nix/bash experience in some form per group.
2. We distribute areas of responsibility for the exercise, so that every group is responsible for one part of the final system
3. Groups will now cooperate and build a working system together
The nature of the system and the partitions are revealed on the spot.
It will be complex enough to be challenging, but simple easy enough so that groups can focus on learning and using linux commands in unison with bash scripting.
Netlight has ordered delicious food and drinks for all attending this event!
tl;dr: We will split into teams, and build a small but interesting system using only *nix commands and bash (perl/python/etc.... not allowed), with the intent of getting more familiar to *nix commands and shell scripting.
You should bring: A laptop with *nix in some form and scripting support, passion and an open mind!
