So a number of resources associated with this class rely on Python and other utilities which are woefully difficult to get working on Windows. In order to make your life a little easier, and give you the pleasure of saying you’ve dabbled with Linux, we’re giving you the power to run Linux for this course!
Double click on the
.dmg file you just downloaded and go through the installation process. It should be pretty easy and self explanatory.
We’ve prepped a Ubuntu Disk Image for you with all the libraries required for the course pre-installed. In case you have to install other libraries, it should be pretty simple as we’re using a standard Linux distribution. Download the Disk Image here.
And you’re all set! No more worrying about compatibility or
$PATH variable issues!
