You don't need a lot to get up and running with Box. The first thing you'll need is an Internet connection. Box lives in a cloud, and so you'll need to have a connection that you can use. Now, if you're like me and you like things to download and upload quickly, then you'll want a fast connection. But otherwise, you can use the connection in your public library, or at work, or anywhere else that you want to use Box. You'll need an email account because it's required for you to be able to set up your own Box account.
And we're going to start with a Box personal account that will cost you no money to set up. And you'll want to have some documents that you would like to store in Box, and work with in Box, and collaborate with others using Box, with these documents. If you have some documents in mind, that's fine. If not, if you have access to the Lynda.com exercise files as part of your subscription, I've placed a few documents in a exercise files folder. So, that's it. Internet, email, some documents that you'd like to use with Box.
Let's get started.
