Manchester, UK: Melbourne Server Hosting is to lead a series of expert teach-ins at Tech Hub Manchester as part of its official partnership with the city’s thriving tech start-up space.
Developers, network engineers, ecommerce specialists and business advisers from Melbourne will be present at the TechHub offices in Carver's Warehouse, Dale Street, Manchester for three days of each month for the next four months.
Rob Greenwood, Technical Services Manager for Melbourne, said: “We want to give TechHub members a direct line to our technical and business expertise. We’ll be hosting sessions that focus on Linux and Windows operating systems, on network engineering, and on issues such as the best way to host an ecommerce website. The advice will be free and given on-site so members have plenty of time with us.”
Staff from Melbourne will be present at TechHub between November 5th and 8th and December 3rd and 6th. The teach-in sessions will continue into 2014 with staff providing advice on-site again from January 7th to 10th and from February 4th to 7th.

Now they’ll be front of house and giving the tech start-up stars of Manchester a great chance to learn from their proven expertise and their own business success.”
