Learn how to download all the software you'll need for this course.
- [Narrator] To follow along with this course, there are a few pieces of software that you'll want to download. Everything we're going to be using is free. The first thing you'll want to download is SourceTree, which you can get at sourcetreeapp.com. Or you can just Google for SourceTree, and follow the link. Depending on which platform you're using, the button will indicate either download for Mac, or download for Windows. Just download that, and the installation is extremely simple. You'll also need a copy of Visual Studio.
If you're on a Mac, you will want Visual Studio for Mac, which you can get at visualstudio.com/vs/visual-studio-mac/. If you're on Windows, you can use any of the Visual Studio options, including the community edition. To follow along with all of the examples, you'll also want to download Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Code is a powerful text editor.
When you go to the site for Visual Studio Code, which again, you can find through Googling, once again the button will either say download for Mac, or download for Windows, depending on which platform you're using. Finally, you need a comparison and merge tool, and the one that I highly recommend is KDiff3. This, again, is a free utility. You can get it through sourceforge.net, and once you're at the home page, simply click on download, and then download the latest version for your operating system.
