Tutor's notes for delegates
In addition to arriving with a laptop (obviously), delegates will also need a mobile phone as Google sends a unique SMS message with a confirmation code (by way of authentication) when developers first sign-up to their service. I'll be covering the mechanics of this as part of the course - all the attendees need do is remember to pack their phone.
Attendees should all have Python 2.7 installed on their computers. It does not matter which OS they are running as App Engine doesn't care (but I will be assuming Linux).
