Tu 23 januari: "..we cannot imagine someone needing more than 50 MHz."
Tu 30 januari: Why and how to make a website for you squat

Tu  9 januari: This little program written in C
  The mother of all programming languages: C. Most modern program languages 
  use C as the basis for their syntax. It's a very powerfull language,
  in which small programs can be quite usefull. Some people refuse to use 
  anything else. Today on of them will tell you why.

Tu 16 januari: An introduction to Perl
  Perl is a very powerfull scripting language, in which you can program 
  anything from a script to send mail from a website to a full sized 
  mailinglist manager. In this introduction, we'll show you some of the 
  benefits of Perl.

Tu 23 januari: "..we cannot imagine someone needing more than 50 MHz."
  ..in 1985 Amiga introduced what today is known as MultiMedia.It could play
  8-bit sounds in 4-channels,stereo and could display simultaniously 4096
  colors on the screen,playing animations and running several processes in
  the background at the same time,than introduced and today known as a
  multitasking.In those days IBM platforms had green and black displays and
  could do *blip* from an internal speaker.Not to mention their bloated and
  nonefficiant OSes.Amiga was designed from the ground up as a perfect blend
  of hardware and software and is extremly memory efficiant.Intuitive and
  fast GUI,audio and video capabilities quickly gained popularity in a video
  industry as well as in the home usage.It became best kept Holywood secret
  and a most popular gaming platform through late 80's and early 90's.Around
  2.5 million Amigas were sold till 1994 when Commodore went bankrupt,killing
  a dream of many people - to build a better computer.
  On 23. January we will demonstrate some of the capabilities of Amiga on a
  three different models: A500 from 1989 with 1 Mb memory running on a 7
  MHz Motorola 68000,A1200 with 64 MB running on Motorola 68060 50 MHz and
  A4000 with 120 Mb  running on 68040, 25 MHz equipped with 24-bit graphic
  card,TV card and audio card..a night of games,demos and some serious
  programs..a night of having a great fun and rebooting from time to
  time..;-)..join us.

Tu 30 januari: Why and how to make a website for you squat
  When squatting a building, making a website about it might not be your first
  priority. But why not? Writing a letter to the neighbours is generally
  considered a good thing. Why not make some publicity for yourself on the net?
  Workshop contents:
  - Why make a website? Introduction, overview of existing websites, history.
  - Squat!net: a webserver for your homepage?
  - A practical howto. Hands-on introduction on making a homepage.
