Growing up on the Amiga Demoscene, Ian first used Unix in 1993 as a teenage hacker but it wasn't until 1995 that he installed Slackware Linux on his first PC (after his beloved A1200/030 had been confiscated by Cardif CID).

Since then he's built and run reliable networks for a wide variety of commercial and community projects. His day job is running a Network consultancy in Shoreditch providing mission critical infrastructure to the local creative industries.

As a founder of the University of Openness Ian ran FacultyUnix, a 2 hour weekly workshop taking place at Limehouse townhall. There he taught a variety of students the how and why of unix, helping them to run their own servers and develop their craft.

Unix Networking Workshops in Shoreditch

Update: There's been quite a bit of interest, so these workshops are going ahead now, see above for details.

At this stage I'm just trying to gauge interest, but these will essentially be Free workshops aimed at people that use computers and want to understand how they work or why theirs has stopped working.

We'll explore TCP/IP (Internet style) networks using FreeBSD and OpenSolaris, two free operating systems with great legacies. You'll start off learning the different parts that make up the system, but in a surprisingly short amount of time you'll be able to diagnose network problems, keep things running smoothly and use your skills to attract hug partners from all around the world.

If you're interested (in unix/networks, not casual hug) please email [email protected] with "Unix workshops" and a swearword of your choice in the subject. I'll add you to our list and when there's enough of you we can workout when might be a good night.

(I'm thinking Tuesday, so once a year we can have pancakes)

It's a: 
Darq HQ
Back Building Basement, 150 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, London, United Kingdom
Date and time: 
Tuesdays at 7:00pm.
Free (but feel free to bring sweets and crisps and fizzy drinks)


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
