Intro To Linux

Meet your new home! The surroundings of Linux can be quite intimidating at first, once you open up a terminal like your lecturer told you to, it feels as if you’re abstracted away form this new environment! Sure, you can cd & ls your way around the terminal for the next while, but eventually, you’re going to need a bit more than that.

On Wednesday you’ll receive a brief Intro to Linux courtesy of Redbrick’s very own Helpdesk! We will be (hopefully) covering something new for everyone here!! Make sure you come along to LG25 on Wednesday at 15:00 to learn you some Linux and eat you some pizza !



Are you finding programming hard? Little bit stuck or at a point where you’re too afraid to ask questions? Never fear! HackerClub is back and better than ever!

Come along down to L101 Thursday at 4pm to find out what it’s all about and maybe learn a few new things about tackling those pesky programming problems!



This year Redbrick will be hosting a Hub in DCU for UKIEPC. Prizes and food on the day will be graciously sponsored by Mastercard, and trust us, you won’t want to miss out on what’s on offer!
