 +====== Linux command line basics for beginners (no set-up necessary) ======
 +
 +Guided exploration of the Linux server command line.
 +
 +| When | **Tue October 29th 2019, 6:30pm** |
 +| Where | **The Avalon Lounge, Kent Road** |
 +
 +Informal and relaxed meeting in the quiet lounge of Avalon bar on Kent Road.  You'll need a laptop to take part.
 +
 +Aimed at absolute beginners. We'll show how to securely connect to a server then we'll work through Bandit, an adventure game set in the command line that progresses step-by-step from the basics to common programs and beyond.
 +
 +I'll have my laptop plugged into a screen and we'll work together to introduce to you to each concept. Bring a laptop and play along as I explain how to progress to each level.
 +
 +See how far you get before you come along and try on the night:
 +http://​overthewire.org/​wargames/​bandit/​
 +
 +This event costs £1 - there'​ll be a donation jar next to me on the night to cover the costs of the meetup group.
 +
 +====== Getting Started ======
 +
 +If you are on Windows, then download [[https://​www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/​~sgtatham/​putty/​|PuTTY]],​ otherwise you probably already have the tools you'll need built in (ssh).
 +
 +Game instructions:​ http://​overthewire.org/​wargames/​bandit/​
 +
 +==== Bandit Level 0 ====
 +
 +The goal of this level is for you to log into the game using SSH. The host to which you need to connect is **bandit.labs.overthewire.org**,​ on port **2220**. The username is **bandit0** and the password is **bandit0**. Once logged in, go to the Level 1 page to find out how to beat Level 1.
 +
 +==== Bandit Level 1 ====
 +
 +The password for the next level is stored in a file called **''​readme''​** located in the home directory. Use this password to log into **bandit1.labs.overthewire.org** using SSH. Whenever you find a password for a level, use SSH (on port **2220**) to log into that level and continue the game.
 +
 +==== Bandit Level 2+ ====
 +Continue with the instructions online at http://​overthewire.org/​wargames/​bandit/​
 +
 +====== Scratch Area =====
 +I'll post any passwords/​command line hints here as we progress if you are having trouble.
 +
 +**Level 0**:
 +<​code>​
 +ssh -p 2220 bandit0@bandit.labs.overthewire.org
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== IRC =====
 +There will be some passwords posted on the IRC channel (#​opensource on irc.glasgow.social) if you need them (or want to continue where you left off).
 +
 +Don't know how to join?  Ask, I'll be happy to show you how.  Or read some instructions at https://​irc.armchairscientist.co.uk/​
 +
 +There is a log of the chat you've missed available here (refresh to update):
 +https://​starflyer.armchairscientist.co.uk/​tmp/​opensource.log.txt
 +
 +
 +====== Attendees ======
 +An opportunity to make some new friends with common interests! ​ Follow us on the Fediverse at https://​glasgow.social/​tags/​coding (create an account on https://​glasgow.social or on any Fediverse connected site) so you can keep in touch with everyone you meet tonight. ​
