So You Bought a Mac?

with

Ok, so you just bought a Mac. Congratulations! You've got a nice clean install of OS X and a world of possibilities at your fingertips—where to start? Which apps are the best? What’s the recommended code editor for the Mac? How do I create aliases in Terminal?

In this course, starting from scratch, come along as I set up the machine that I use every day! This course is all about the apps, tips, tricks and techniques a web developer needs to make the most of your Mac. 

Course Replacement

We've now published a similar course with the latest version of OSX and some additional modern tools. You might like to check this one out instead: A Developer's Guide to Setting Up a New Mac.
