Take time to ensure all necessary tools are correctly installed on your personal machine. For Intro to Programming, this includes configuring the command line, installing and setting up Git, and installing VS Code text editor. Go back through the previous lessons if you need to.

Setup and/or installation instructions are included in the following lessons:

  • Command Line - Only Windows users will need to install a program to utilize the Command Line. Mac computers should have a built-in program called Terminal, as described in this lesson.
  • Text Editor: VS Code
  • Git and Github
  • Git Configurations
  • We also recommend installing Chrome if you use another browser on your personal machine. Chrome recognizes most of the latest JavaScript features. We also use Chrome Developer Tools as well as other Chrome features throughout the program. You can download Chrome here.

If you encounter any issues setting these up ask for assistance from your instructors.
