I'm hosting a workshop called "Open source 3D game development with Godot for beginners" if anybody wants to join us. Just a brief intro.
Starts at 6:30pm.
“Learn to code!” has its foundations in market value, it's suggested as a way up, a way out. “Learn to code” goes on your resume.
But let’s substitute a different phrase: “learn to cook.” People don’t only learn to cook so they can become chefs. Some do! But far more people learn to cook so they can eat better, or more affordably, or in a specific way. Or even sometimes because—get this—they love spending time with the person who’s teaching them.
I'm running a "#Linux command line basics for beginners" tutorial tonight in #TheAvalon from 6:30pm.
Come join if you're interested (it runs last Tuesday every month)
Heading to The #Skeptics tonight for "AI, Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Industry 4.0 … and thanks for all the fish" - I'll be in The Admiral from 7pm if anybody wants to join.

We'll be playing a game called Bandit from overthewire.org - Level 0 is how to connect to a server using PuTTY/ssh, then for level 1 the password is in a readme file, level 2 the password is in a hidden file and so on. Teaching new concepts along the way. It's a lot of fun - if you're into that sort of thing.
Giving a talk (or more of a 'guided conversation' 🤓 ) tomorrow night (Tue) in #TheAvalon from 6:30pm: "Open source social media: ActivityPub and Mastodon - a gentle introduction"
#CodingFromScratch meetup tonight in #TheAvalon from 6:30pm
I've created a new meetup.com group: Open Source Glasgow
The plan is to increase awareness for open source, teach some Linux basics and encourage self hosting of web services etc.
Our first event is "Linux command line basics for beginners", on Tuesday August 20th in #TheAvalon on Kent Road.
@Legomancer I was thinking of, going forward, adding a "Level x" type of indicator to each event. Based on this: https://coding.openguide.co.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=lesson_levels What d'ya think - would that work?
Learn to code from scratch meetup tonight in #McPhabbs from 6:30pm. 40 signed up so far, that's a record for our third meetup! See you there!
Some notes on what we'll try to cover:
Doh, just found out the space on Tuesday in Avalon is double booked (I only found out because I got an invite to the event hosted there). I've got 30 people signed up, and they've got 7, damn. Need to find a new venue, asked in The Griffin but it's booked already. Not sure whether we'll need to cancel. I'll try one or two more options first. #coding
A place for communities in and around Glasgow, Scotland.
