Details

Guided exploration of the Linux server command line.

Informal and relaxed meeting in the quiet lounge of Avalon bar on Kent Road.

Aimed at absolute beginners. We'll show how to securely connect to a server then we'll work through Bandit, an adventure game set in the command line that progresses step-by-step from the basics to common programs and beyond.

I'll have my laptop plugged into a screen and we'll work together to introduce to you to each concept. Bring a laptop and play along as I explain how to progress to each level.

See how far you get before you come along and try on the night:

This event costs £1 - there'll be a donation jar next to me on the night to recoup the meetup.com costs.
