Before You Arrive
- Read and follow the preparation instructions:
- We use VMs hosted at Amazon Web Services - these will be available the day of the class, so there is nothing you need download ahead of time.
Please note that the training requires you to bring a laptop.
You will need to have either an RDP client (for Windows) or SSH client (for Linux), plus root access to modify your etc/host files, depending on your choice of operating system for this class.
The training makes use of Virtual Machines (VMs), in this case derived from Amazon Marketplace Images (AMI) loaded on Amazon Web Services. The training team will provide access instructions when you arrive for the first day of the training.
You will need root/administrator access on the computer you will be bringing to class so that you can modify the local hosts file.
Your VM will be available during the training and for two weeks after the training. After two weeks, the VM will no longer exist, so be sure to save anything you need within two weeks of the end of the training.
