Be prepared

Before you come to Ludwigsburg, you should prepare yourself. The following sub-sections help you bring what you will need for this tutorial.

GitHub Account

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
  • Either
    • Command line git
    • Or the Eclipse IDE with Git support
  • The classics
    • Like bash, curl, 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:7 and 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.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
