There are a number of software packages that we will be using on a regular basis. This post summarizes which packages we want to install, and how to install each package.
Sublime Text 2
Sublime Text 2 is a text editor that is simple enough for beginners to use, but advanced enough that you can learn some efficient coding techniques. Installation instructions are adapted from www.webupd8.org/2011/03/sublime-text-2-ubuntu-ppa.html
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sublime-text

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
