Course Environment Resources and Getting Started

Virtual Machine - This semester we will be using a Virtual Machine (VM) environment where we have already setup everything for you to use. With this environment you can use any computer (needs to be a laptop or desktop, not an ipad or tablet or phone) and your files will be backed up. That means if your laptop breaks, you can just login to any Duke computer and keep working with your files!

NOTE: After using the VM you MUST close your browser window! You will not be able to login to another browser window until you do so.

Instructions First time: The first time you login to eclipse you will need to setup Python. We will also do this in lab so you can wait to lab to do it there.
