    EduGeek needs you!

    (Must remember to photoshop DB's face onto a WW1 recruiting poster for this bit)

    Yes ... EduGeek needs you ...

    After working with several suppliers and companies we have a rough programme of what we will be offering advice and help in.

    However ... we would like to have more 'real world' scenarios available for people who come to the stand. We have had a number of offers from members already about helping out and I will be contacting those people over the weekend to confirm that they are still available.

    The areas of expertise we will be covering are:

    Windows Server 2003 R2 - features and configuration (eg printers, file & quota settings)
    Windows Deployment - RIS (and if anyone has tried WDS)
    Windows Depolyment - rolling out software (MSIs)
    Windows Security - What GPOs do *you* use?
    Exchange - Setup
    Exchange - Configuration
    Exchange - Maintenance
    Web Services - IIS/ASP/HTML
    Web Services - Apache/MySQL/PHP
    Linux - Server uses
    Linux - desktops in school
    Macs - Integrating in Windows networks
    Macs - desktop configuration
    Security - Email / Web filtering
    Helpdesk - useful software / tools
    Helpdesk - policies and procedures
    VLE/LP - Moodle
    VLE/LP - Sharepoint
    VLE/LP - FirstClass
    Thin Clients - Citrix
    Thin Clients - Windows Terminal Server
    Thin Clients - Linux

    There are so many other catagories that can be included so feel free to suggest others that you can help with.

    Please PM me you details, confirming that you have registered to go to BETT on a particular day.

    I will have a variety of EduGeek t-shirts for members to wear (and take away as a thank you).

    Re: EduGeek needs you!

    How about a general 'Primary issues'?

    The concept of IT Support in primary schools isn't one that is often addressed, but there are some of us out there!

    There is a unique blend of issues, often concerned with trying to make ancient machines do the latest things, the perils of managing large numbers of standalone or peer to peer machines and often not having an Active Directory or Group Policy in sight!

    Not to mention the manpower problems - the unfortunate have only the IT co-ordinator. The slightly more fortunate have a tech like me, working across 8 schools, but still only getting paid a 19-hour week!

    I'd love to help if I can, but I can probably only get up for one day, probably Wednesday or Thursday, and would need some time to look around too, but I think I could find you a couple of hours...

    Let me know if this is any good, but I'll have to see a little nearer the end of term whether I can swing it. If not, I guess I'll be coming on the Saturday...
