You need a good internet connection! We are using GitHub, Conda and external data.


Make sure you have enough disk space available! Especially when you are using a Virtual Machine. You should have at least 5 GB of free disk space available.

The main requirement of this workshop is Conda. It works on most common platforms like Linux, macOS and Windows. If you don’t have Conda yet … we will install it at the beginning of this workshop.


You will need a text-editor to edit Python code. Choose your favorite one … if you don’t have one yet, you can try Atom or Kate.


On Windows you can also use VirtualBox with a Linux Installation, like Linux Mint
