The session will be designed to actively engage up to 20 participants equipped with their own laptop. The hands-on will be performed within a virtual machine (VM). The aim is to provide the most productive participant experience possible.
The virtual machines files will be made available ahead of time. Ideally all participants will have been able to confirm that the VM works properly prior to the start of the session. Collabora will be available from Tuesday to assist with setting up the VM environment for participants.
On Wednesday, Collabora will be available at Studio H (Level 2) to assist participants to get ready for the session. Please don't hesitate to come by to have the SDK VM installed and configured!
The session is scheduled for Thursday morning.
Collabora will make available the following SD cards/USB Keys with the VM pre-loaded on them:
- 12 x NTFS (for MS Windows host OS users)
- 06 x HFS+ (for Mac OS X host OS users)
- 06 x EXT4 (for GNU/Linux host OS users)
