  • Participants of the tutorial need to bring their own laptop with VirtualBox software. The idea is to run the whole hands-on tasks inside a sandbox environment, which ensures sufficient and homogeneous software packages for all participants.
  • A virtual machine (VM) with Docker installed, which can be downloaded from here. Credentials: (username, password) = (master, master).
  • The VM is an exported file from VirtualBox (OVA 1.0 file) so that the it can be imported from different OS. If you don't have VirtualBox installed on your laptop, please download from this page. There are software versions for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
