== Prerequisites ==
 
This is a tutorial, and has hands-on exercises for you to do to help understand the material presented.
 
Please make sure that:
 
* You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
 
* You have a laptop with plenty of charge.  There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
 
* You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have <code>/bin/sh</code> as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell.  Such shells include:
 
** dash
 
** bash
 
** ksh
 
  
== Material ==

== What ==
We'll be using only standard commands &mdash; ''ls sed awk grep test'' etc.

One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner.  On Debian or Ubuntu do:

apt-get install sysvbanner
+
  
It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:

and unpack it with

The familiar BlueHackers logo

By popular request! The now traditional BlueHackers BoF.


What

BlueHackers started late 2008... for anyone dealing (directly or indirectly) with depression, anxiety, bipolar, and related matters.

You may have seen a little blue BlueHackers sticker on a laptop, which quietly shows your support... it tells people they're not alone. It's simple, and it really makes a difference.

During the year, useful information and articles get posted on the BlueHackers.org website.

And at conferences, we often have a BoF. Some people may wish to hop up to the front and tell something, just for a few minutes. Others may just want to sit in the back and listen. We're not professionals. We're just fellow human beings. This is not therapy or anything like that. But it helps.


When

Wednesday afternoon in the tea break (3pm-3:40pm)

Where

For simplicity (and proximity to the tea & munchies) I suggest the key lecture theatre. Keep an eye on the main BoF page for the allocated room location.


Who

  • Arjen Lentz - catch him around the conference
  • you!
  • George Patterson
  • Thomas Sprinkmeier
  • others - you don't have to sign up here to come along, but it's an option.
