JS @ Web Summer Camp (Hall 3)

About

Workshop prerequisites

In order to actively participate in hands-on workshops, you need to bring your own laptop with a processor capable of hardware virtualization and at least 6 GB of RAM, but 8 GB is highly recommended. Regular hard disk will do, but having an SSD is an advantage. As for software requirements, you need to have the latest version of VirtualBox 6.x installed.

Please note that if your laptop is not capable of hardware virtualization and doesn’t meet the requirements, you will only be able to listen to the workshops, but you will not be able to participate hands-on in the workshops and get the maximum value out of it.

If you will still have problems with your setup, our Help Desk crew will be there on August 27, 19:00-20:00 to sort out any last minute issues.
