Linux Workshop

To kick off semester 2 we will be running a Linux Workshop. At the moment it will be running for 3 weeks.
It will be on Wednesday the 12th of February, at 6.30, in room AU-1-006. 
If you are interested can you please fill in your name and email on the following form :
If you have wanted to get to know Linux this workshop will be the ideal thing for you, we will start off with a guide to install Ubuntu. If you have anything specific you want to know/learn about linux just give us a shout and we can sort it out for you.
It will be more beneficial if you can bring a laptop, but if thats not possible an empty 8gb+ USB stick will suffice. 
We also have a guest speaker coming in Monday the 17th to talk about games development. I will send out a mail about this in a couple of days.
Hope to see you on Wednesday!
