    Patchwork Nashville with Nashville Women Programmers: Sponsored by GitHub

    We are so excited to join with GitHub for this special Patchwork! This event is open to beginners to Git and GitHub, and mentors who want to help others learn. They'll have stickers for everyone, and a little something extra for the mentors, so we hope to see you there.

    GitHubbers and community mentors, will be on hand to walk the attendees through their choice of learning modules:

    • GitHub 101: Introduction to GitHub

    • GitHub 102: Using the GitHub Desktop

    • GitHub 103: Using the Command Line

    If you have questions about the command line, GUIs, or anything Git and GitHub-related, they're here to help.

    Food and refreshments will be available.

    The event will be held on June 27th from 6:30-9:30 PM at Nashville Software School.  Please RSVP here: https://ti.to/github-events/patchwork-nashville-2017

    Linux+/LPIC-1 group study session #1/6

    Reading and exercise lists will be posted here, along with source URLs and other references. First links should appear Wednesday, May 17th. This will give attendees 24 days to prep for the first class.

    All six sessions will be held at the Nashville Software School.

    Session dates are the second and fourth Saturday of each month, June through August.

    Session times are listed as running from noon to 2:00pm. Tentative breakdown for session #1 is as follows:

    12:00pm - 12:15pm = Load-in/setup.

    12:15pm - 12:45pm = Opening remarks and presentation. Presentation slides will be available in advance.

    12:45pm - 1:00pm = Q&A, brief break.

    1:00pm - 1:30pm = Group labs and exercises.

    1:30pm - 1:45pm = Closing remarks, assigned reading and self-study exercises for next session (June 24th).

    1:45pm - 2:00pm = Teardown/load-out.

    Note: The Linux+/LPIC-1 certs are based on CentOS 7, which is x86-64 only (ie - it's a 64-bit OS, so it won't run on older 32-bit hardware, but that shouldn't be a problem for any laptop make in the last 10-12 years). You'll want to have CentOS 7 installed and running by June 10th, preferably earlier so you can start playing with it. If you need help installing and configuring it, you're in luck! We have an installfest coming up this Saturday, May 20th, at the East Nashville Beer Works, from 11:00am to 4:00pm (show up at 10:00am if you want to help set up and learn how to run an installfest).
