Welcome to Sidings Media, an open source education company focused on networking, programming, and servers. Our website and blog posts are all open source, meaning you can learn from our content and use it to create your own projects.
At Sidings Media, we’re passionate about learning and sharing our knowledge with others. We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality educational resources.
Sidings Media was founded by Matthew Nickson, a self-taught IT enthusiast with a passion for sharing knowledge and learning from others. Matthew started Sidings Media as a hobby project to document his own learning journey and to create a platform for sharing his knowledge with others.
We started our homelab with a humble Raspberry Pi, but it soon snowballed into something much bigger. We started using old enterprise network equipment that we got our hands on, and we set up our own mini data center right in our garage.
We love to share what we learn in our homelab. We believe that everyone should have access to the kind of hands-on experience that we get in our homelab, and we hope that our experiments inspire you to create your own tech playground.
