Friday Installfest

7:00pm – 9:00pm

We’ll work together to set up your computer with the necessary tools and explore the command line a little. Bring your laptop and the battery charger. A tablet won’t work for this. Let us know if you have a problem getting a computer and we will see if we can get one for you.
