Linux Basic Training

  • March 22, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • ITT Tech, Harrisburg Campus

Jumpstart your Linux World! This event is for everyone new to Linux or at a beginner level. Even if you've been using Linux for a short while, this event will help to establish many of the concepts that surround the Linux world. This is also the perfect time to get answers to general questions you might have.

Four sessions will take you from the basics of the Linux system through using and configuring a new install, and what you can do with Linux. Three speakers, Dave Hand, Alex Mayer, and Nate Moss, will give live demonstrations in 45 minute down to earth presentations. 

Attendees who RSVP'd will receive a free packet of information and resources including reference material and installation media.

In the spirit of open source and freedom, refreshments and free pizza will also be available.

In order to plan for this event, we need as accurate an attendance as possible. Please be sure to sign up if you are planning to come, and only sign up once. Also, if you decide you cannot make it after you've signed up, please be sure to change your RSVP.

    Those from the training who mentioned having accumulated Excel macros and not wanting to give them up: I have a boxed version of Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student (most bare bones edition but does include Word, Excel, Powerpoint) It should run fine using the install script in playonlinux, but I've not tried it on any OS myself. If one of you wants it, it's yours. If you plan on attending the next 2nd Tuesday meeting, I'll just bring it along, otherwise I can mail it.

    A very good and well rounded 'symposium' for everyone. I was glad that the presenters resisted the temptation(s) to delve into details that would have been off-putting to beginners. Yet, the mix of knowledgeable persons in the meeting made good idea trading and good learning for all.

    My wife will be coming along. She is a Linux 'appliance' user ... LiveMedia system for "safe and sane" web browsing. Hopefully, she will see a little beyond the browser window. I'll bring along 2 systems ... a laptop with LiveUSB, and a tower to demo 'diskless' Linux operation, along with a number of distros ... Mint 13, 15, Korora 20, and a "Multi LiveMedia DVD". We may be just a tad late as my wife will be at the food bank until noon.

    See you all on Saturday.

    I am scheduled to work until 12:30 (though there is a chance of getting out early.) I also have yet to arrange transportation. Is it still worth coming if I can't make it before 1:00 or 1:30?

      I think it would be, yes. You'll miss the first session and probably the pizza, but you'll still get to see and learn a lot.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
