UNIX System Administration & Networking Workshop for East African Women Engineers, Kampala, Uganda 
AfChix Uganda collaborates with AFNOG and NSRC in hosting the  UNIX System Administration & Networking Workshop for East African Women Engineers, Kampala, Uganda (10th – 15th November, 2014)

The African Network Operators Group (AfNOG ) invites women engineers from East Africa to participate in an intensive Unix System Administration and Networking workshop.

Workshop Goals and Outline
Overall objective: After attending this track, participants will be able to install, upgrade, secure and competently manage the Unix operating system on standard PC hardware, and use it to provide essential Internet services on a network. It is aimed at participants who are technically competent but may have had little or no prior exposure to the Unix environment. We have also introduced some Networking and Routing Topics. In addition they will be taught concepts such as:
  1. Basic Internet Protocols and how they work
  2. Some basic Internet services and how they function, including DNS, Web, SSH and E-mail
  3. Designing installations for long-term scalability of services
  4. IPv4 and IPv6 Basics
  5. Routing
Who should apply
All East African women engineers, Software Developers and Systems Administrators with a desire to get Unix Administration and Basic Networking skills. The Workshop is largely sponsored but Participants are required to contribute the local currency equivalent of $200.00 towards their participation. Priority will however be given to applicants from Uganda and/or East Africa Female Network Engineers resident in Uganda.

Experience in managing PCs and installing software (such as installing the 'Windows' operating system), but not necessarily Linux/Unix. Some prior Linux/Unix experience would be of great benefit.

Language of instruction will be English.

Application procedure:
Complete the application form online at http://goo.gl/yCCwSW.  Please ensure that you submit your application in time and fully completed. Selections will be on a competitive basis. Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted.
