We'll use the Terminal application to install most of our tools. The Terminal is the text-based interface on your Mac. It may feel a bit awkward at first after years of relying on a GUI interface, but the more you use the terminal the more efficiently you can get things done.

You can open a new Terminal by searching with Spotlight. Hit Command and Spacebar. Then type Terminal in the search bar.

You'll use Terminal everyday in class, so make sure to add it to your dock for easy access.
