Most laptops that are less than three years old should suffice. Chromebooks will not work. PC, Mac, or Linux is acceptable. We encourage you to use an operating system that you’re most familiar with. Below are some recommendations to consider, however if you have a laptop that doesn’t meet these recommendations, don’t assume that it won’t work. Contact us so that we can put you in touch with the instructor for the bootcamp you’re interested in so that they can help evaluate your laptop’s capabilities.
|Type of Laptop||Operating System Requirement|
|Mac||10.13 or above|
|Debian Linux||Stretch or above|
|Ubuntu Linux||Bionic or above|
CPU: 2 core minimum, 4 core highly recommended. An Intel i7 processor is ideal, but an i5 or equivalent will work.
RAM: 4GB is the bare minimum; 8+ GB is much better and definitely recommended. For the Java+Android bootcamp specifically, 8GB is the minimum, with 12+GB strongly recommended for those students who don’t have a physical Android device.
Hard Drive: 128GB minimum, with 50GB available to install new software.
