the event[edit]

Bring your own laptop!

Attendees are each expected to SSH into a new Debian virtual machine and work entirely in the shell. They will not need to install or configure the OS, but they might be asked to modify Nginx configuration files.

Special note for Windows users: since winblows doesn't come with SSH by default, we recommend that you install PuTTY.
