NYLUG Workshop / Hacking Society

The coordinators will be teaching and showing off hardware hacking, simple DIY electronics projects, and programming tutorials. We will also help newcomers to Linux learn the ropes of getting around.

Bring something to discuss! We've been focusing on LaTeX, Python, Smalltalk, and using Linux, but were open to anything. There's a blackboard, chalk, and Internet access.  Notebook computers are helpful but not required. Bring books! Bring hardware! Bring software! Bring friends! All levels of experience from totally new to experienced welcome!

After workshops, the coordinators go out for dinner and/or drinks nearby. Feel free to join us for some lively dinner conversations!

It is helpful, but not necessary to have a notebook computer. If you would like to work on hardware hacking or electronics, feel free to bring equipment. There's WiFi in the library for your convenience.

In this workshop we'll be starting a new tract of courses designed at getting users up and running with a terminal-based workflow. Running for 5 weeks, James will lead a co-ordinate series of lessons on everything from terminal navigation, the standard filesystem and text editing to CRON, SSH, Git and Bash usage. Each workshop we'll run through the material and you'll be expected to complete the associated answers on your own time.

Whilst the course is still being finished, you can view the notes for the first workshop online at

    I'm particularly interested in learning to use Git effectively and some hands on exercises with Cron.
