Ubuntu 4 Beginners

After installing Ubuntu three times, in the past few months, and after having many requests to do it again, I have finally decided to put it all together in a workshop. It is going to be next Saturday, in Barcelona, in my favourite co-working space. And it is “free” as beer, and GNU/Linux ๐Ÿ™‚

The “official” announcement will be tomorrow, I think, but you can be the first to read it here ๐Ÿ˜‰

UPDATE: THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED!

Ubuntu 4 Beginners

Did you ever think about installing Ubuntu, but never actually have the “courage” to do it alone? Then this workshop is for you.

In the first part I will introduce the GNU/Linux Operating System, by explaining some basic concepts and showing some applications.
The second part will focus mainly on the installation process of Ubuntu, and I will install it “live”, on a virtual machine.
At the end of the session I can help people who are interested, to perform the installation on their own computers. Note that this will be *at their own risk*!

Target Audience:
This workshop targets people with a limited knowledge of *Nix systems, although some proficiency in using computers would be nice.
If you are a proficient *nix user or developer, and are interested in specific parts of the OS (such as the kernel), you may be interested in a more advanced workshop. If you are wondering what a *nix user is, please come: this workshop is for you ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have Ubuntu installed on your laptop, or you are planning to install it at the end of the workshop, you may bring it with you. Otherwise, laptops are not required.

Practical Info:
The duration of the workshop is approximately 2 hours (11:30h-13:30h), including a 10 minute break. Note that this is a free workshop, but you do *need to register*, in order to attend. Please do it, by filling this form: it should only take 2 minutes.
For practical reasons, I will limit the number participants to 20, on a: “first come, first served” basis.

This workshop is hosted by MOB/Made (Calle Bailen 11, Bajos. 08010 BCN) and all donations collected by the bitcoin wallet bellow will be given to Made, a non profit organization.
