    Hey everyone! Love the turnout on such short notice!

    Before arriving I have a little pre-work for you to do. We'll be using a training virtual machine with everything installed and ready to go. You can download from here:

    We use VMware for running our virtual machine environment. You can use either VMware Player (Windows) or VMware Fusion (Mac). Please download and install whichever is appropriate for your laptop. To verify it's running, you can login with the password... wait for it... cassandra I'll see everyone on Saturday. Make sure and drink plenty of coffee. It's going to be a ride!
