Hi everyone: If you want to get your feet wet learning about programming
then Stephen Paul Weber is thinking of running a workshop.  Since he
said "shell scripting" and not "DOS prompt" I'm guessing he's talking
about a GNU/Linux shell, like you find in Ubuntu.

You can reply to me and I'll forward to Stephen, or you could reply to
him directly at singpolyma@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Teaching stuff again!

I've been discussing with several people the possibility of my running
my computer science overview again, but this time targetted at
beginners. This is something I'm considering, but while I'm thinking
about it, I wonder if more people might be interested in a one-off
workshop to "get your feet wet" in this whole "telling the computer what
to do" thing.

If there is interest (from those who have expressed interest in the CS
course, or from others who just wonder what this "telling the computer
to do stuff" bit that many of us do is all about), I am considering
running a one-evening shell workshop.  This would be geared to absolute
beginners (well, knowledge of how to turn on a computer and mouse around
is probably a good idea).   If you've ever wondered what the heck that
"terminal" nonsense is about, or you know but you'd like to be able to
glue it all together in more interesting ways, this would be the
workshop for you.

The idea would be to run a workshop open to the public (and free of
cost, of course), so if you think you know someone who would be
interested, let them know.  Anyone who is interested, let me know what
evenings are good for you. If there is enough interest, I'll announce a
