Install directions

You'll need a few bits of software to get the most out of our meetup.

Please bring a laptop that you're able to install programs on. That means you'll need administrator access.

Tablets and Chromebooks will not be able to run the programs we're using.


You'll need Microsoft Excel, on either a Windows or Mac. If you can't get Excel, Google Sheets will work for most of what we're doing.


If you're doing the advanced data track (for people who have some Excel/spreadsheet experience), you'll want to install a SQL database program before the event.

Please follow the install directions here.
