The HOL sessions are BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Therefore you MUST have the environment configured prior to the event. If you are already running Windows 8 you are half way there. Otherwise, you have to configure it. This could be a dual boot or a virtual machine. We will provide access to an online environment as well but please be mindful of the high demand for internet access so the experience may be hindered due to network latency.
PLATFORM + ENVIRONMENT
We have selected a handful of labs that we recommend you use during the HOL session.

You can use the resources below either during the lab or on your own time later.

it says that if it is Windows 8 you are half way there. Otherwise, I have to configure it. Are there any instructions on how to configure it? Why it has to be a dual boot? I currently use Windows 7. Please explain in more detail. Thanks
@Greyhound the dualboot is not a requirement just an alternative. By configuring I mean the machine (OS, Tools, etc.). the OS itself is normal installation procedure...
