'''Server From Scratch''' is a 3 part series of tutorials designed to provide a very hands-on experience with deploying a web service from scratch. Attendees will have a chance to interact with server hardware, and configure all the software and services needed to deploy a web application. Each session will take no more than 2 hours, and they will occur once a week for three weeks.
