You will need a computer capable of running a development environment: a modern 64-bit CPU, with at least 4GB of RAM and 5GB of available storage running a recent or preferably the latest version of Windows, Linux or macOS. If you use a company computer, you may need to check with your IT department to ensure you have access and permissions to install the required software.
