Quick Start

After loading the USB key, you should perform the steps outlined below. If you are a windows user, please consider using Powershell, or otherwise replace cd with dir and any forward slash (/) with a backwards slash (\) when navigating directories.

  1. (Recommended, but not required) Copy the contents of the USB drive to somewhere on your hard drive. It is possible to run the exercises directly from the USB drive, although the exercises will run much more slowly.

    The USB drive contains over 2GB of files, so please begin this file transfer as soon as possible.

  2. Rename the folder containing all exercise content (either on your hard-drive or on the USB key) to ampcamp6 (or any other pathname without spaces). If you skip this step, you will see your sbt builds fail.

  3. Change directories in to the folder containing all exercise content (either on your hard-drive or on the USB key)

    Throughout the training exercises, all command-line instructions of the form 'usb/$' refer to a terminal that is the root directory containing all exercise content (either on your hard-drive or on the USB key) . Moreover, [usb root directory] refers to the full path to this directory.
