Required Tools and Technologies

Familiarize yourself with the tools and technologies that we’ll use in this course.

We'll cover the following


Here’s a list of some tools that we’ll be using in this course. We already have them setup for you, so there is no need to worry about downloading anything new.

  • Text editor and terminal: WWe’ll use Educative’s text editor to write code and the terminal to perform all command-line work.

  • Git: Git is an open-source version control system that tracks changes in source code and coordinates teamwork on these files. We’ll use Git to push our code to Github and clone (or download) existing code repositories that other developers have created. We’ll cover this in the next chapter. The terminal widget below has Git installed. Verify that by running the following command:

    git --version
