Move on to: steps
Before you come to Ludwigsburg, you should prepare yourself. The following sub-sections help you bring what you will need for this tutorial.
This tutorial requires a GitHub account, which you can use to fork repositories and set webhooks to those forks. You can, of course, create a new GitHub account.
A Linux machine
Yes, Linux is awesome. Bring your Linux notebook including:
- A web browser
- Command line
- Or the Eclipse IDE with Git support
- Command line
- The classics
sed, … nothing fancy
But I got a Mac!
It's actually less about the kernel, more about the command line tools. sigh ...
GNU/Mac OS X will work as well, as long as you still bring the tools mentioned above.
It might be helpful to install GNU Sed using
brew install gnu-sed.
And what about Windows?
Don't count on playing Minesweeper during the tutorial
With Windows you need to prepare yourself. You will still need the basics already mentioned: web browser, git, command line classics.
Windows doens't bring those out of the box, so you need to take care of that yourself.
There are a few choices you have:
- Run Linux virtual machine – That brings you back to A Linux machine, but you finally got a nice little Linux box on your machine.
- Install Git for Windows – Git for Windows allows you to install a "Git Bash", which has everything this tutorial needs. Might be a good alternative over a full blown virtual machine.
- Run a docker container –
docker run -ti centos:7and installing a few extras should work as well. But from what I know, this boils down to running Docker with a virtual machine again.
- Go for the Windows 10 Linux subsystem – Yes, hell froze over once again. And now Windows acts like the Linux kernel.
