Before the first Tuesday of class, take time to ensure all necessary tools are correctly installed on your personal machine. For Ruby, this is primarily installing Ruby itself and a tool called Postgres, which we will use when we begin integrating databases into our Ruby projects in week 3.
The following two lessons contain setup and installation instructions for these tools:
If you encounter any issues installing or configuring any of these technologies, there will be an opportunity to receive setup assistance from Epicodus staff the first Tuesday of the course at 10:30am.
It's important to try setting up these tools up now, even though we don't use Postgres for a few weeks, so that you may take advantage of installation and setup assistance if any errors or issues occur.
