Computer & Material Requirements
Students are required to bring their own laptop with plenty of free space on the hard drive. Most students use Macs, simply because they are easy to work with. By the first day of class, students will need:
- The latest version of Google Chrome
- A text editor: Atom
- A GitHub account
- Supplemental course material will be based on Treehouse and Code School, both of which require a subscription. You may already be using these excellent resources to prepare for this course.
- Linux: Windows machines should be set up to dual-boot a Linux operating system. We recommend Ubuntu.
Learn with Stacked Modules
Concepts in each of our courses are taught using stacked modules, where a new concept is introduced in each class session, building upon what came before it. This is a challenging style that requires persistence, practice, and collaboration, but allows more concepts to be introduced over the length of the course. This method helps students learn and retain more information in a short period of time. Learn more about stacked modules »
