Right in line with the back-to-uni crowd, we’ll be doing an Introduction to Linux session for those who are curious about it but never knew where to start! We’ll cover
* What it is
* Who uses it
* How to get it
* How to install it
* Introduce the concept of Live USB
* How to find and install software on it
After which, we’ll do a quick showcase of some popular, beginner-friendly distros. You can bring your own laptop to check if Linux would run on it using a Live USB session !
We hope to see you there!
We’ll be meeting at Akva at 7pm, for a 7:15pm start, in the upper mezzanine, then social from 8pm
If you have never been to one of these meetings, just know that it's friendly and informal - grab a pint or a soda, come ask questions, get help with open source software and Linux, and enjoy some geeky company!
There is often a Linux laptop on hand for a quick show and tell for anyone who is curious, and you can also bring your own laptop to troubleshoot Linux, or try Linux on your own laptop - without installing it.
