During the WebCamp you will have opportunities to practice what you learn with labs. Having all of your software ready will make it easier to dive into the yummy goodness of exploring the labs. The lab package will be given to you during the event. This will need to be installed. If you want to have everything loaded into a virtual PC that would be even better.
Don't worry if you can't get everything installed we will have all of the bits with us at the WebCamp and can help you get everything installed.
A little pre-work will go a long way. Your only homework is to make sure your machine is setup ready to go and you come with questions. Remember these are interactive.
Please, note at events like these, power and bandwidth are limited to some degree. If you download the tooling before the event that will help relieve stress on the network. At some of the events we will not have enough power for everyone. We ask that everyone share appropriately, and if you have multiple batteries it might not be a bad idea to bring it.
