I thought I'd share some of the vision behind it:
- We are quite silo'd as a community of Christian techies, and even in a larger church such as HTB there are surprisingly few of us. This is about meeting others with the same visions and faith as ourselves.
- Getting time to do "what we want to" relating to Christian initiatives isn't easy - I have kids, who consume most of my time, and generally time that I do have is keeping up with the latest trends and technologies without actually building anything. Here's a chance to change that.
- We can conquer so much more by combining forces with other professionals
- Part of the problem of motivation is having people screaming "We need this" - which is what we hope to have, by having some sponsors and challenges set out by those non-techies who seriously need tech to survive
- We occasionally need others to come alongside us in our daily work requirements. What better way to work out if you can stand someone, than to code through the night with them?
We have so much to offer as Christians in tech. In 2 Solomon 2 vs 7 it says:
"Send me, therefore, a man skilled to work in gold and silver, bronze and iron, and in purple, crimson and blue yarn, and experienced in the art of engraving, to work in Judah and Jerusalem with my skilled workers, whom my father David provided."
Although it didn't mention "programming" or "IT" in the building of the temple, I have no doubt that Jesus calls us all to be professionals and use our skills and gifts for His glory. What better way to start this than joining us on 2 October. Sign up here!

I did some investigation, cleaned up drives, etc, then found out it was my 512GB SSD that I bought over two years ago - it needed a firmware upgrade.
So I followed the information in the above link, only to find it didn't work for the mac.
After a lot of hunting I found this article which pointed to this older article that wasn't needing translation.
I followed the tutorial, and took the advice to section off a bit of my extra hard drive (the non SSD 750GB drive in the DVD Rom enclosure), and tried to boot off it - it wouldn't boot.
So now that I had the correct disk image copied from my flash rom drive on a 5GB partition on my 750GB drive, I found I needed to download the newer rEFIND Boot Manager , specifically the USB flash drive image file, and followed the instructions to install it on the 16GB Flash ROM drive.
I plugged the 16GB Flash ROM drive in, restarted while holding down the option key, and it asked me to select my usual options but also a orange drive that was the rEFIND Boot Manager that was on the Flash ROM Drive. Once selected it asked me if I wanted to use the SYSLINUX partition that I had made by following the article above. From there I followed the instructions to install the firmware upgrade.
I hope this helps someone!

I've created a calendar for my availability for "Symfony 2 PHP Development", best practice training, and web development support for 2013. If you know me, you already know that I've been doing web development for 16 years, so can take on all manner of projects, but I'd prefer them to be built with Symfony 2 and jQuery.
The calendar will be booked up on a first come, first accepted basis. Generally I'll require a £100 deposit, but this can be negotiated based on connections.
I'll be in contact about all bookings, so be sure to leave your contact details when you book in! I can be on-site in London for the full 8 hour day. Please contact me @nathanlon on all social platforms for further details.
