The Tardis Project is a computing facility, run and maintained by students (and staff!) of The University of Edinburgh. It was one of the first such projects of its kind, founded in 1988 by the School of Informatics (previously Department of Computer Science). Tardis provides services to members of the University, such as web hosting and mail access.

One of the Tardis Project's main aims is to allow students at the university to be involved in running a large computing system, and learn the experience required to design, build and maintain such a system.

Our wiki is in need of some love. ❤️
Some of the information here is likely to be incorrect or out of date, but remains for reference. We're on IRC if you need some help, and are working on getting this back up to date.

Here is a list of current changes, major problems and developments going on in Tardis.

rphi has set up a Trello to keep track of things currently happening in Tardis. (One of which is to move this Trello off Trello and onto something hosted within Tardis.)

(unfortunately MediaWiki won't let me embed a mini Trello board here)

If you would like to help us with or you would like to learn about how we are doing any of the above projects please contact us at support@tardis.ed.ac.uk.
