In prep for this event:

1. Bring your laptop.

2. Download a text editor such as VSCode(https://code.visualstudio.com) or Sublime Text 3 (https://www.sublimetext.com) (you can download this for free).

3. Install git (https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-Installing-Git)

We welcome developers of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem! :)
