    Hi there - will be around a lot I think!

    Hi all,

    I've been here before once or twice before but I think I am soon going to need to immerse myself in the community!

    I'm going to be teaching ICT (PPA) in my primary school next year as well as being the resident 'tech'.
    Now, I am reasonably tech savvy when t comes to windows, websites, MLEs desktop hardware etc.
    However, networking and server side stuff is newish (well, I am fairly well versed in Apple OSX server but not so much Windows)

    So I'll need to get up to speed pronto.. :-)

    Anywhere I can look for some good, friendly basics...

    cheers

    MrB

    Hi @MrBitey
    Welcome to edugeek (you might want to post in the New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here section)
    As for where to find basics - look no further - just search edugeek for whatever you want and someone will have posted useful info, be it basic stuff or a tip on where to find what you want.

    Welcome!

    Will ultimately depend on what you'll be expected to manage. Do you know much about what's in place at the school already in terms of server setup, clients, networking infrastructure?

    Hi there, nice to meet you. @Edu-IT, I am still getting my head around the stuff in place already. Currently, I'm in class full-time, so haven't had much of a chance. Will have a good look soon though, hopefully with the folks who currently manage the network.
    Ideally, I'd like to maybe have it all set up fairly fresh (we are still on WinXP and really need to upgrade!) and then I can be present, see how it all works and go from there...
    :-)

    Welcome to edugeek. The best bit about this forum is that us loan techs have someone else to ask

    And the eduhobnobs are plentiful on bad days

    Which part of the country are you based in?

    New to server-side and got to plan your XP upgrade already? That's an interesting project for you right there!
