Tutorial Instructions

The tutorials below have pages with revised instructions for setting up a laptop before the tutorial session, or other communications from instructors to participants.

If you don't see the tutorials(s) you're taking in the list below and want to know how to prepare your laptop, check for prerequisites or instructions listed with the tutorial description via the Tutorial Schedule. For many tutorials the setup is very simple and is handled in the first few minutes of the tutorial.

Tutorial Preparation Sessions

Tutorial Preparation Sessions are held from 6:30-8:00PM on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Registration area. You can get help there setting up your laptop for the tutorials.

Use virtualenv

You may want to make installations for your tutorials using virtualenv (particularly if you are taking more than one tutorial). To do this, install current versions of virtualenv and pip. There will be a virtualenv orientation in the Tutorial Preparation Sessions.

Successfully Installed for your Tutorial?

If you have successfully installed packages for a tutorial you're attending, and would like to help others at the Tutorial Preparation sessions, then follow the guidelines to prepare a USB installation package, and come help!
