HOT Update: Before you go

On your way to fame and great prizes, our technical experts recommend you review these handy resources to prep for success!

Please bring a Windows laptop if you can.  Each team should have access to at least one Windows laptop as ArcGIS only runs on Windows. You will have access to a terminal services account for your team as a backup, but you’ll find it more convenient to use Windows.
