Get a running start with the labs!
This workshop is specific towards Windows as the operating system for your machine. (The labs can also be done on Linux, although this can be a bit more challenging.)

You will need to have a development IDE installed. The preferred IDE is Visual Studio 2017. Alternatively, you can use Visual Studio Code, but keep in mind that the labs are tailored to Visual Studio 2017.
You are also going to need Docker Desktop and git.
For some labs, you'll need an Azure subscription. If you do not have one, you can create a free trial account at Microsoft Azure. It will require a credit card, but it will not be charged.
