At the SLUG Beginner workshop you can come along and work with Linux enthusiasts to assist you in setting up your system the way you want. This could include friendly advice on partitions, distributions, configurations, networking and specific applications. Bring your laptop!
Please let us know in the comments if there's anything in particular you would like to see at the workshop!
Transit and parking info: The Google office is the big black building marked "Accenture" opposite Star City Casino Pirrama Road facade.
If using the trains, you can go either get off at; (a) Town Hall station, head towards Darling Harbour, walk across the Pyrmont footbridge and then follow Pirrama Road towards Star city; or at (b) Central station, then take the light rail to Star City.
If using the light rail, get off at Star City station and walk across the street.
If using the buses, the route 443 stops right out front of the building.
If you drive, then you can look for parking on the suburban streets around the office (or pay for parking at the Casino), and then walk from there.
