All right, let's talk about what you need to download, and what you need to install. So downloading is simple, there are some exercise files. There'll be a link on the page here somewhere to download those. And they will be everything that we'll use, like images and text that we'll use throughout the course. So download those. 

Inside that exact same file that you download, there'll be something in there called the Completed Files. There'll be a folder inside of it. And what they are is, at the end of every video what I do is I kind of save where I'm up to. So that if you're following along and you're not getting the same results, you can just look at the video number and then have a look at the completed files, and just match my version with your version, and go, "Hmm." 

Often it's just maybe a spelling or syntax error, but you can compare yours, that's working, or mine that's working, maybe yours that maybe not. So they're inside Exercise Files and Completed Files, all together. 

Other thing to talk about is what to download. So we will be testing our websites in Google Chrome. So make sure you download that. Google Chrome is by far the most popular browser at the moment. So download that and we'll do all of our testing inside of that. It's like Firefox or Safari, Microsoft Edge, or Internet Explorer, but it's the most popular one. Go to Google Chrome's website and they'll show you how to install it. 

The other thing to install is a Code Editor. So we're going to be using Visual Studio Code. Now, why? There's a lots of different code editors, so you don't need specifically this one, but you'll need it for this particular course. Basically a website is a group, a mixture of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, right? You can use any code editor to make that. We're going to be using Visual Studio Code, not Visual Studio, that's a bigger product, you need the specific Visual Studio Code, it's free. It's made by Microsoft. And just so you know though, it's-- I'm using that mainly because it's the most popular at the moment. 

So if you're looking to get work after this course, you're probably going to end up in a studio where they are using Visual Studio Code. You might as well be learning the same one, but the techniques and tools you're going to learn in this course are going to apply the same to, if you're using a different code editor. Let's say you're using Atom, Sublime, Notepad++, they're all really good editors but they end up making the same thing. The shortcuts are different, they've got different ways of working but the output is the same. So don't sweat it if you learn all this stuff in Visual Studio Code, and then you have to go and use another editor. It will all apply lovely, but yeah, install Chrome, install Visual Studio Code, both of them are free. And I will see you in the next video.
