MCU Day Internet of Things 2013 Workshop Installation Guide (must be completed BEFORE class starts)

All students must bring their own laptops to class. The preferred O/S is Windows7, but CCS will run on XP and Win8 as well. These installation instructions MUST be done PRIOR TO class time. Otherwise, you will be spending precious time getting the tools installed which may put you behind in the labs. Because this is an instructor-led class and everyone listens to a chapter first, then does the lab, then moves on to the next chapter - TOGETHER - it is imperative you read and follow these instructions carefully and completely before coming to class. If there is a problem with installation of any tools, the instructor(s) will do their best during the first lab to help, but if all else fails, you may be asked to partner up with another student and do the labs together. So PLEASE have your tools installed before class.
