(Note from the organization: In case of not being able to reach all the points of the program in this workshop, the date for the 2nd part will be made public later).

Recommended: It is not necessary to have specific applications installed for the occasion, but these will be some of the ones that the speaker will use:

Browser: Mozilla Firefox, which has tools that other browsers lack.

FTP client: Fetch whose free trial version you will find here

Text Editor: There are many that can be used, but the speaker prefers Textwrangler, which is free.

Other things are already in the system, like the Terminal, but since you cannot type certain characters (neither “@” nor “#”, for example) it may be fine to have iTerm installed.

Admission will be free but it is ESSENTIAL to register in advance in this same post or in the link that will soon be enabled on the CampusMac website.

We recommend bringing extension cables if you are bringing your computer.

Don’t forget to mark your material to avoid last minute confusion!

Please keep an eye on your things: The organization will NOT be responsible for the loss or deterioration of attendees’ private belongings.
