The ASPE Docker course will be run as a continuous lab, and you will be able to follow along with the course after meeting a few prerequisites. No assumption has been made about what platform you might be running for development, and the following software can be installed on Mac, Windows or Linux.

First you will need to install Oracle Virtualbox from

Next you will need to install Vagrant from

You will also need a GIT and SSH client, these come standard on Mac OS-X.  If you are running Windows you can download from and on Linux you can install these with your distributions package manager, for example:

$ sudo apt-get install git-core openssh-client

Any additional requirements will be retrieved through the duration of the course.
