hosting speakers, and more. Every event goes on our

Of course, not everything we need help with involves code. There are plenty of other aspects where members can help out.
Without reliable server infrastructure to host all of our services,
the code we write wouldn't be much help to Mason's community. Take a look
at learning to use the Unix command line. In Hollywood, it's the
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFUlAQZB9Ng">sign of an elite hacker</a>,
but doesn't have to be mystifying. Sure, no mouse is a bit different, but soon
enough, you'll see both how using a terminal gives you far more power, and
why for a lot of cases, it's easier than clicking, dragging, and dropping.

Server setup, ansible, docker, domain names, mailing servers... I have absolutely no idea. This is not my wheelhouse, and is close to being completely black box for me.
The free version of
<a href="https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-the-command-line">this tutorial</a>
is a great place to begin.
If you're already using Linux or OSX,
<a href="http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/">this tutorial</a>
is another great resource (ignore the intimidating title) to try things out
on your own machine. Once you have a little practice under your belt,
try following our documentation to deploy one of our
<a href="{{ url_for('projects') }}">projects</a>.
<a href="https://git.gmu.edu/srct/whats-open">What's Open</a>
is a good one to start with.
