A developer laptop with pre-installed Java / openJDK [object JavaPackage] GIT-client and Maven 3 is required to
run the examples.
You can run the examples if you like, or "hack" along with me, but taking notes is perfectly viable as well.
Visual Studio Code is a great editor.
To run the examples you will need an IDE with good maven support such as netbeans
or intelliJ. For simultanous / continous deployments to multiple servers I will use wad.sh.
