You will need a laptop. If you absolutely can't get hold off one, let us know and we'll see what we can sort out. You will need software installed on the computer. We will run an Installfest on the Friday evening, to get you up and running. This is compulsory - we cannot get through the curriculum on Saturday if you are not ready to go.

If you cannot make Friday evening (18:00 to 21:00), again let us know. We will try and arrange something else.

Course Times

9:00 am to 17:00 with one hour for lunch.
