Developers need a comfort level with the basics of Linux that’s impossible to get from on line tutorials or a book. Interacting with the servers at Amazon Web Services (AWS), Digital Ocean, or other cloud providers will almost always require command line interface (CLI) basics. Get your hands down and dirty with the Linux command line without giving up your ‘other’ operating system.

Linux can be run from a Flash/USB drive, a live CD, or within one of the many virtual machines like VMware,  VirtualBox, or Parallels. This “Good ‘Ol Fashioned Linux Installfest” aims to get you up and running via a virtual machine, a live CD/USB disk, or an install to your current computer.

This Installfest is aimed at beginners looking to get into Dev or Dev Web work who need a hand up in Linux CLI. If you have experience in Linux and would be interested in mentoring please contact the organizers directly.

With the kind sponsorship of IndieDesk DTLA this event will be on June 4th from 11am – 3pm. The first 1.5 hours will be dedicated to installing Linux following by a quick CLI tutorial to get you started.

In order to best respond to each participant’s questions throughly we are limiting RSVPs to 10 people.  Depending on demand another Installfest may be scheduled later.

RSVPs will need to be made through EventBright and IS LIMITED TO 10 PEOPLE. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/good-ol-fashioned-linux-installfest-tickets-25709511842

You will need a computer with a minimum of 2gb memory for the virtual machine options.

Teach girls bravery, not perfection

Thought provoking and enpowering. Amazing 12 minutes spent with passionate Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code

We’re raising our girls to be perfect, and we’re raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. “I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.”
