The Beginner Workshop will be held in the Los Angeles Ballroom on the third floor of the Student Union. Please register and pick up your badge at King Hall before heading over to the Student Union. 

Please bring a laptop, charging cable, notepad, and a pen or pencil. If you’ve got a spare power strip you can bring, please do so so that we can make sure everyone’s laptops have access to power when needed. We recommend you download and install the free version of DesktopServer Limited(free) to allow you to work locally on their system as we go through the workshop.
