Here are a few logistical tasks to get things started. Please take a shot at each of the following before class on Wednesday. If you run into problems, however, don't worry: there will be time during class that day to sort them out.
- If you already have a GitHub account, please email me your username.If you don't have an account, please go to GitHub to sign up for one and then send me your username. Please do this as soon as possible so I can add you to the GitHub classroom for the course.
- Go to the Core Software page and download all of the packages listed there that you don't have on your computer already. The downloads are pretty large (about 800 MB total) so be sure to do it on a reasonably fast connection.
- If you're very comfortable installing software and making choices about installation options, go ahead and install the packages. However, if you're not completely comfortable, or if you run into any trouble or aren't sure how to answer questions that come up during the installation process, feel free to cancel the installation and wait to do it during class on Wednesday.
