Are you planning to attend the CodeMash Pre-Compilers? If so, we strongly recommend that you take the time BEFORE the conference to prepare. The wifi during the CodeMash can sometimes be a little iffy, especially Tuesday morning on the first day of the Pre-Compiler. Gonna chance it and wait to download? You will have to compete with all of your other wonderful CodeMash attendees for bandwidth. They may be seeding their machine to cloud backups, watching youtube videos of cats, and/or pulling the same 5GB file over the Internet and Wi-Fi that you need… by the time you have it, and get it installed, the first break has passed and you are woefully behind.

Moral of the story? Don’t be a slacker! Get those pre-reqs installed.

If you don’t see anything posted for your pre-compiler session, please check back in a few days! We will be updating the pre-reqs as speakers tweak their presentations and get them to us. We also will explicitly state (if we know) that a pre-requisite download IS NOT required.

What are you waiting for? Start downloading. Have fun!
