We recommend bringing a laptop as a minimum number will be needed to actually connect to the Beaglebone hardware but don't let that stop you from attending if you don't have one. All who attend will be able to participate and get involved in this exciting project!

Notes: Those of you bringing a laptop should have an SSH client and an FTP program for participating in the course.

SSH: For Windows users I recommend 'Putty' as the SSH client which can be downloaded at the following link:
Putty
Click on 'putty.exe' under 'For Windows on Intel x86'

For Mac users you have a preinstalled terminal program which will suffice for the course.

FTP: For Windows users I recommend "WinSCP' from the following link:
WinSCP
Click on 'Portable Executables' under 'Download WinSCP'. The program will be contained in a zip file.

For Mac Users I recommend "Filezilla" which can be found here:
Filezilla
The file is a .tar.bz2 file which should be able to be extracted natively on Mac with the built in 'Archive Utility'

Other than that, just bring your motivation and desire to learn some really fun, useful stuff and have a great time!
