Docklands Linux Beginner's Workshop

Feb 21 2009 12:00

Cinema Room, The Hub @ Docklands, cnr Bourke St and Harbour Esplanade, Docklands

We've had some new faces at meetings lately, which is fantastic. However, some of our new members have let us know that some of the talks go over their heads and would rather like a chance to get help with specific issues they've encountered with their linux systems. Therefore we've decided to start monthly LUV beginner workshops.

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

... but if you want help with a different application or problem, come along and let us know.  This is the first time we hold this event, so it will become what you make of it.

The Hub @ Docklands, 17 Waterview Walk, Docklands (near the corner of Bourke Street and Harbour Esplanade - look for the giant rabbit sculpture)

Parking can be found nearby.

For those coming via Public Transport, the City Circle, number 48 (North Balwyn - Docklands) number 86 (Bundoora - Docklands) and number 70 (Wattle Park - Docklands) all stop on the corner of Bourke Street and Harbour Esplanade.  Southern Cross Station is just across the overpass over Wurundjeri Road.

Up and running

We've got an excellent turnout; a mix of new beginners and extremely advanced beginners. We're about to start, so more later :-)

Awesome idea

I'll be there with virtual bells on.
