Software to install

Visual Studio Code

First you'll want to download Visual Studio Code, a "plain text editor." A plain text editor is used to reading and writing documents that don't have any formatting - no bold, no colors, no font choice. Just you and the text!

Once you've downloaded Visual Studio Code, you'll want to set it up.


You'll probably want to download Slack. Here are links for Windows and Mac.

Once you've got set up, you might want to check out a little Slack how-to guide to become familiar with how it works.
