The first Beginner's Workshop was a great success, with over 30 people converging on The Hub and lots of advice and solutions being shared.  Help us make the second one even better by coming along on March 21st.


We intend to cover things like:

  • installing various linux distributions;
  • tweaking and configuring your system;
  • automatic backups;
  • home networking, including wireless;
  • setting up specific platforms (e.g. mythtv, asterisk, ubuntustudio, etc);
  • using specific applications - openoffice, inkscape, gimp, openmoviestudio
  • the Linux problem you're having

do you need to bring...

a machine/computer?

bring a machine

If you have a specific problem with your machine that you want solved, then yes, bring a machine.

how long will the workshop run for?

I work until 1pm at Tullamarine which makes being at the workshop by 12 a bit of a problem.... how many hours does it run and is it OK if I arrive at 1.30ish?


The workshops run until around 4pm, so arriving any time before then is fine.
