The meeting (video and audio) is open from 12:00 and closes at 18:00, I won't be online until around 13:00, so we can chat for a while before and after.

I found it quite simple to install the .deb package:

dpkg -i zoom_amd64.deb

This may fail initially if you do not have the required dependencies, the below should resolve this and install it at the same time:

apt --fix-broken install

Please note that this is the first online meeting I have run, so it will be a learning experience as we go along tomorrow.

I will be sharing my screen so you can see as I type, as advised this is a workshop, please find below the url for the Github repo:


It has clear instructions for installation and usage, quick usage overview:

To start:


To progress to the next question:


If you are not sure how to complete the task:

githug hint

If you need to reset:

githug reset

If you want to take a look or follow along I'd advise installing it on a vm or a machine that is not your main machine that you can wipe afterwards if you require to.

For each question I'll be asking people to investigate or advise how to complete the question, it's quite possible I suspect there may be multiple ways to complete the tasks.

I know Git basics, I am looking to learn from you all and I hope you learn as much as possible.
