Week 6 Newsletter

Hey, brickies!

Welcome to week number 6 of the semester! How are we halfway through the semester already? This can’t be happening??? Feels like we just started a week ago!!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and I hope you aren’t too devastated after the rugby World Cup match. This week’s cat GIF is the admins after fixing mail for the 100th time this week. Be nice to them.

Have you heard people talking about Git and GitHub and want to figure out how to use it all? Come to L114 on Monday the 16th of October from 1:30-3pm to learn how to “git good” at all things git. There will also be pizza!

Are you interested in hosting your own Netflix, or want to connect to your home from anywhere? Are you curious as to which services and devices the admins run in their homes? Visit L125 on the 19th of October from 1-2pm to learn about the world of home servers! Pizza will be served!

Redbrick will be doing its annual pilgrimage to FOSDEM which is an open-source tech conference taking place in Brussels, Belgium on the 3rd and 4th of February 2024. You can register your interest by filling in this Google form here.

Do you want a Redbrick hoodie? Of course you do. It’s a great way to show off your Redbrick membership and you can have your username on the sleeve. If you are interested, please fill in this Google form here. Deadline for hoodie forms is the 27th of October.
